Such a car is a thing of surprise even for the people in Nigeria.
The indomitable spirit of a human can achieve anything. The car which is woven with raffia palm cane is an apt example of this.
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.
Artisan Obaniyi weaves raffia palm cane on a door of a converted car at his workshop in Ibadan, Nigeria.
The fine weaving of car shows the expertise of Ojo Obaniyi in such projects.
Raffia is a well known feature of the tropical regions of Africa. This is an integral part of the local life there.
So, what do you think? Should we also go for a car like this?
