The Volkswagen Beetle is an iconic piece of car design, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be repurposed to look even better. Bokja Design took a classic Beetle and decorated it in car stickers, tapestries, and handmade vintage fabrics from the Middle East as part of an exhibition at Milan Design Week. The result: an ultra-colorful car that is sure to attract inquisitive stares from passers-by.

The car was sold last week in an eBay auction for 1,004 euros, all of which will go to Fondazione Francesca Rava to help Haiti‘s children. What do you think–would you drive around in this fabric-covered Beetle?
