Somehow, the patterns look like traditional batik of Indonesia in a glance. Only its color shows the difference. =)

And, just like that, the Sartorialist himself has singlehandedly made Moroccan prints the new style. Just wait and see when everyone will be wearing harem pants and araabesque prints in a couple of months.

NOT mad at that! wish i could find these seat covers in the states
December 14, 2011 at 1:43 am
That interior looks way cool!

Really nice cloth pattern of the seat. I think motor companies should think about not only use leather to make seats.

The seats look like a persian carpet but on a classy way :) Not sure if I would like for my own car but it’s kind’a nice :)

Not to mention the real story behind the drapes: most cars in Africa are bought second hand here in Europe and then driven to another life, thus very old and battered, with cracked dashboards and torn upholstery. Those textiles are a way to dignify their vehicles, to put some care in their machines with the meager means they can access to.

Mmmm I love the line of stickers on the passenger side. Such a telling photo.

Very intricate! But I bet that car smells awful.
December 14, 2011 at 2:21 pm
What lovely prints! I love these.
December 14, 2011 at 3:29 pm
This car reminds me of a worn-out passport.:)
December 14, 2011 at 8:33 pm
Have never understood why auto makers don’t offer patterned upholstery. Stripes, geometric prints. Hey, even chintz!
December 14, 2011 at 11:14 pm
all the Moroccan pictures captured here are so inspiring… can someone please design a line around this already

If you live in the middle east, this is not something unconventional. There is a whole vernacular of auto-decoration -particularly for Taxi’s and trucks -that includes patterned fabric, leathers, wool, plastic flowers, painting, calligraphy and even small electric fans and christmas lights. I believe there has been a book published documenting these driver-artists’ work in Beirut, Lebanon -the name escapes me right now..

It looks nice! I’ve vistit a lot of Arabic countries, but the one I absolute adore is Morocco. It’s such a wonderful country. I recommend you to visit the new ‘Morocco Mall’ in Casablanca, ohgosh it’s really awesome!!!
Big kiss from Argentina.
This is Belgium

nice but not as awesome as the taxi driver dashboards in egypt..

I dismissed this when I first saw it, mostly because we have these sorts of decorated cabs in chicago too. But now the patterns and the surreal blue green colors are suddenly looking very compelling. Like its underwater. Maybe I didn’t really look the first time.

Now you’ve done Turkey and Morocco, next stop India. You have to see this guy’s blog, http://wearabout.wordpress.com/ I’d say you inspired him more than a little.

It is your comments what amazes me, not the picture. After 9 years working in Morocco I’ve seen things like that about a thousand times. Thank God pictures do not let you notice the smell inside that car (yet). Do not take me wrong though, Morocco is a colorful nice country, with great art, craftsmanship, history, etc. But in my humble opinion this car is not representative of Morocco’s beauty.
Someone had to disagree from the main stream.
