SEAT Constructs World’s First Fabric CarNovember 10th, 2014
SEAT celebrated the release of its latest Mii compact sedan through a partnership with the Spanish fashion brand Mii. As part of the festivities, SEAT created the world’s first fabric car – a SEAT Mii constructed entirely out of lace with jewel accents. The fashion-inspired car is a full-sized version of the Mii and was constructed over a period of three days and used nearly 50 yards of lace fabric, ten yards of black lace for the wheels, and another 70 yards embedded with jewels to make the whole thing sparkle. It makes one wonder whether the engine was powered by elastic bands.
The fabric car was designed and created under the supervision of visual artist Ashley Joiner. I’ll have to admit, when I saw it was called “Mii by Mango,” I was a bit disappointed that it wasn’t this guy.
