What could be said about Anthropologie’s Rickshaw (yes, a real thing) that Anthropologie couldn’t say better? Just listen to their whimsical description of the $2,200 culturally questionable bikemobile:
While on a
trip to India work project to find new objects to culturally appropriatesome of our team got tired of walking among the poorsflagged down a rickshaw for a spur-of-the-moment tour of the markets where we find cheap goods and sell them at offensively ridiculous pricesthe town. Inspired by the opportunity to make moneyride and feeling a bit light-headed from not eatingwhimsical, we decided to design our own set of wheels, with some very special touches like a collapsible kantha-fabric canopy, handlebar streamers, a bell for brrring-bringing on the bike path and even a headlight that illuminates when the pedals are cranked (warning: does not come with ethnically ambiguous driver). An instant conversation starter on the road or on display, we’ll bet your neighbors and friends will find this all a bit troublingyou’re whisked away on the adventure of a lifetime once you hop on — or into — our crazy expensive and completely inappropriatequixotic carriage. No two are exactly alike.
And good news! You can order up to 15 of them at a time! [Anthropologie]
