Dear wonderful humans,

5 months ago we printed our first Taxi Fabric. As we fitted this beautiful new interior into our first participating Mumbai Taxi we all looked at each-other and knew we were onto something. This wasn't going to be a one off - this was going to be big.

Apparently you all feel the same.

28 days ago we launched our little film on Kickstarter and told you about our idea and we hoped you'd get it. And oh my god you did.

Not only did we reach our initial goal of £8,000 in the first 10days, but we then reached our stretch goal of £10,000 and then you guys just kept going. There are no words for how grateful we are and there are no words for how excited we are for the next 5months of this project. We've got 30 Taxi Fabrics to make- thats 30 young Indian designs who now have the opportunity to to show off their skills and story-telling abilities on this unique platform.

We're going to make it happen, but you made it possible.

From all four members of the Taxi Fabric team- Sanket, Nathalie, Mahak and Girish - THANK YOU. Thank you for listening to us, talking about us on social media, writing about us in the press, sending us your well-wishes and most importantly sending us your donations. We won't waste a penny and we're not going to waste any time either.

Donors will now get emails from us, asking for the relevant info we need to make sure your rewards reach you. If you want a loved one to receive your reward instead of you, just let us know.

Those of you whose rewards include designing your own taxi - we cannot wait to make that happen. And to the hero that has paid to put his face on a cab, you better start practising your pout.
