The wall tapestry reflects a traditional symbol of Assam, the 'Xorai'; used as an offering tray for betel nut and leaves to show one's respect and appreciation for guests. The Xorai in the wall tapestry is flanked by two ‘jodia pepas’ placed as a pair. A pepa is an Assamese wind instrument made out of buffalo horn, played with Bihu geet.

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.
