bokja design (hoda baroudi and maria hibri) has created the ‘bojka bug’, in which they have taken an iconic volkwagen beetle and covered it entirely in a patchwork of handmade vintage fabrics from the middle east, tapestries and car stickers. on show at spazio rossana orlandi during milan design week 2010, the studio re-purposed this classic and basic frame, applying its craftsmen’s skills, colors and designs from its fabric collection to create a fun, surprising object.

the ‘bojka bug’ was up for auction on ebay from april 14th – 20th, with all proceeds going to fondazione francesca rava to benefit the children of haiti. we wonder if the car actually runs as the final bid was only a meer 1,004.00 euros.
