Haitian Tap Tap Bus pencil holder Hand Painted Recycled Metal

In Haiti, tap-taps are basically local, public transportation on four wheels; it can be a former US school bus, but also a pick-up truck.  Everywhere you go there are brightly painted, taxi buses that burst with personality and flair. The special vehicle pictured above is called a Tap-tap which literally translates to “quick-quick,” though these things aren't necessarily noted for their speed as much as the beautiful artwork. The roads are so bad in Haiti that it is almost impossible to go quickly with a mixture of overcrowded streets and huge potholes.

Happy - Fun Colors. You will love the delightful hand painted metal wall hangings. Each design has been hand cut from recycled steel drum at our workshop in Haiti and beautifully hand painted. You will love the exciting color combinations.
