GAMOSA

The COVID-19 pandemic has made the ubiquitous gamosa, a decorative cotton towel, evolve from memento to mask. These are being repurposed as protective gear to fight the coronavirus.




About:

  1. The Gamosa/Gamusa is an article of great significance for the people of Assam.

  2. It is generally a white rectangular piece of cloth with primarily a red border on three sides and red woven motifs on the fourth (in addition to red, other colors are also used).

  3. Although cotton yarn is the most common material for making/weaving gamosas, there are special occasion ones made from Pat silk.

  4. The multipurpose Assamese gamosa is valued as a gift for visitors, used as a scarf, anti-dust mask, wrapped around the head as a turban.
