The wall tapestry is inspired from the’ japi’, a traditional symbol of Assamese folk culture. It is a handcrafted product which was originally used as an agricultural headgear by farmers to protect themselves from rain or the sun's heat. In the present times, Japi finds a prominent place in the Assamese socio-cultural way of life, as it is often offered as a symbol of respect and welcome.

The Wall Tapestry Collection is inspired by an elegant symbol of culture and pride of Assam, the Gamusa. It is a unique piece of textile, traditionally woven in white cloth with red motifs and stripes. The motifs used in a Gamusa are symbolic elements of Assamese culture and tradition, inspired by its unique flora and fauna, crafts, folk music & dance, literature, craft, sculpture and architecture. The Gamusa is an integral part of the state’s identity and a means of livelihood for the community. It is also a symbol of gratitude, often used to adorn elders or loved ones as a token of respect and appreciation. Technique of Aari embroidery has been used to make Assamese inspired motifs on the silk cloth.
