Get into one of these taxis and you would be forgiven for feeling like Alice after she’d gone down the rabbit hole. A bunch of designers in Mumbai are giving the interiors of local taxis a funky makeover with a project titled Taxi Fabric.

Quite simply, Taxi Fabric aims to turn taxi covers into canvas for artists and the stories they want to tell. Each design has a tale to it and the artists are putting them into perspective.

Inspiration is drawn from subjects as diverse as the similarities between India and Pakistan and life in a busy city.

Each taxi design looks like an open-ended question. It’s up to the passenger to decide what they make of it.

The artists behind the project have also raised over 11,000 pounds on crowdfunding platform Kickstarter.

Have a look at some of the taxi interiors below and a word of warning to those lucky enough to ride in one of these – you may never want to get to your destination.
