Wonder: A Film by Michał Górzyński


‘Wonder’ is a film by Michał Górzyński which features a tango performance by Melissa Sunjaya and Gennysam Delos Reyes Alcantara from the Los Sueños Association in Singapore. It was filmed in Jakarta, in Melissa’s grandmother’s house, where she grew up. The music ‘Desilusión’ was composed by Pablo Motta from Buenos Aires. In this piece, Pablo played the piano and double bass with two other musicians: Anna Kostyuchek – Violin and Ginger Murphy – Cello.

The Argentine tango is a unique dance depicting a dialogue between two people. Every action is like a sentence and dancing through a song is akin to completing a whole conversation. In social dancing, a Tango is never choreographed. For both the leader and his partner it is about listening, not only to the music tempo but to the movements of each other. The emotion and drama inherent to the tango is the reason why many call it “the dance of life.”

All great tango dancers focus on three things: being utterly grounded to the core of the body, breathing tall, and maintaining balance while creating an internal rotation along the spine. From a top view, the movements of two people dancing Tango often illustrates the symbol of infinity (∞). The tango is a spiritual dance in which two minds unite.

The latest Wonder will be available at Tulisan Boutiques on February 25, 2015.

PEPE for Kampus Diakonia Modern


you, me, and them
we are all children who desire to play with joy and laughter, who get curious
to discover new things,
who jump to catch our dreams with thousands of smiles,
who work together
to collect all the
colors of rainbow,
who feel lonely
when no one understands us, who long for a friend
to embrace,
who believe a promise
that there will be no more tears, who wish and hope
for a brighter tomorrow, because in the end
we are all children
created equally. 

– Melissa Sunjaya

A  film by Michal Gorzynski.

Plume: A Film by Michal Gorzynski


This film by Michal Gorzynski demonstrates a tour of Poland’s Gdańsk in the following fashion video of Tulisan’s Plume & Wonder Fall/Winter collection 2014-2015. The video plays with light and shade in a city of trade by the baltic coast, which is home to a central seaport in Poland.

The prominent influence of the Plume & Wonder edition was based on the crossing line between the subversive conscious of our dreams and our projected reality. The film joins the ethereal connection between the self and nature, following the steps of a young woman supporting a Plume Panama Bag in Orange Salmon as she follows the haziness of sunlight, embarking on a discovery through the shifts of emotions captured through the streams of sound and the boundless landscapes.

The video accompanies Indonesian-band Polka War‘s ambient track “Horse Hooves” which will be released in their upcoming album this year.

The Plume Prints Edition will be available in November 2014.

Explore Your Pouch

Posted on Life, Video | 2 Comments


Tulisan’s pouches have long become one of our signature style. It quickly gains popularity for its compactness and versatility as well as a favorite object of experimental for our team. We keep exploring ways to ensure they remain in parts of our lives. How have you explored your Tulisan’s pouch? – Rassi Narika

1. Clutch


Melissa folded her Large Pouch in half and carried it to a cocktail party. I seriously thought she was bringing a new product prototype for a tryout.

2. Literature Kit


I personally love bringing books wherever I go. I always make sure that it is not just book that I can read, but also a journal to capture my doodling thoughts and ideas. I use the Medium or Small Pouch to put my currently reading books and the Large Pouch to bring my sketch book – for my occasional daydreaming session.


3. Shoe Storage


Myra use her Large Pouch to bring her running shoes in her gym bag. It is also a fun ways to keep your shoe collection like what Melissa did – one for each and try to color code them, too.

4. Currency Pouch

This comes in handy when you travel beyond many borders. Shalimma and Myra  shared to us how they do it. Put one currency in each Petite Pouch to help you handle the foreign bills as you shop.

5. Headset Compartment

BAT1202NJ_TIP23Carrying your headset in your bags can be concerning, at times. You don’t want the wire to tangle or to break the muffs. So, we put our headset in the pouch, separating and keeping them from the possible fiasco that might have happened to it.
