Aggarwal said that while developing the design he was inspired by the Indian fashion, where traditional embroidery by craftsmen is still used in conjunction with modern industrial equipment.
The concept is based on the dominant approach of the Indian garment industry, which uses powerful machines and looms, and yet still have these traditional crafts made by Indian masters.

In the construction industry artisans lose their jobs as their work is already done by machines that are much more productive. But in the Tashya store the designers have revived the practice of construction crafts.
For the interior of the store the designers widely used jalis, traditional wooden screens with decorative patterns carved in them.

Charged Voids produced jalis, using both modern computer technology and traditional methods of making decorative metalwork. As Aggarwal said they wanted the craft practices in India to become a popular trend in construction.
The store also has several private rooms, where those who are less interested in buying can take a break.
Choice of clothing for brides in India is a very important ritual. It is always a great family event, when eight or nine people come to the store to choose a couple of dresses. The goal was to create comfortable atmosphere for those who engaged in the shopping and for those who are just waiting, so that all of them could enjoy their stay in the store.
