World's first hand-woven car





Raffia is a kind of African palm tree which has large leaves. It produces
a very useful fiber. 


Nigerians use this fiber to make mats, baskets and other useful products. 


Artisan Ojo Obaniyi, who has made this car is a 40 year old man. His 
workshop is in Ibadan in southwest Nigeria. 


Don't think this car doesn't use fuel. It works like any other car. 


The fine weaving of car shows the expertise of Ojo Obaniyi in such projects. 


Artisan Obaniyi weaves raffia palm cane on a door of a converted car 
at his workshop in Ibadan, Nigeria. 


Such a car is a thing of surprise even for the people in Nigeria.
