Space In Your Home


It happens to all of us: you walk into a Tulisan store, fall completely in love with some gorgeous of art and have to take it home, only to realise that it’s not the right fit. For one reason or another, Tulisan has some sizes for your wall, giclée in petite to master size.



Cushion Cover: Filogenesis & Tessitura

It’s important to remember that decorating is personal. At the end of the day, your opinion is what matters most. Simply adding art to an empty space, pick something that speaks to you. From there you can make sure that it chances. Chances are if you like it, it will.


Tea Towel: Tessitura – Blue Note

Empty wall deserves grand and glorious for wall decor. This way your room won’t get lost or look misplaced.


Tea Towel: Filogenesis – Nero Forest

You can also use moderately in the same theme or colour to create a stunning gallery wall.

When talking about avocado, I yearn for more es campur (mixed ice) or jus alpukat (avocado juice) with chocolate milk. In Indonesia as is some part of South East Asia, avocados are taken as desert companions.

WP_JOU_121211AVO_01But then Dom, Melissa’s husband, taught us to sprinkle of olive oil, salt and/or sugar on top of our avocados. I thought it was very exquisite. Olive oil boost the fruit’s creamy texture and enhance its flavor. A refined taste that is indeed delizioso!

First Batch of Twelve

Beloved Friends of Tulisan,

It is an overwhelming joy to receive your genuine appreciation and to know that you believe in what I do. I started Tulisan in 2010 by creating illustrated print editions, limited to 12 pieces per series. In nurturing this newborn brand from Jakarta, our collection has continued to grow while we maintain our unique artisanal craftsmanship by constructing every piece by hand in small batches until this day.

On Wednesday, the 5th of December 2012, we will be pre-launching “First Batch of 12” for 2 new editions of Spring 2013: “Bawang Putih & the Night Sky” by Myra Bianda and “The Love Letter of Roro Mendut” by myself. Each piece of the “First Batch of 12” series will be numbered on a special label. Myra and I will be available in our store on this pre-launching day. We hope to meet you then.

Happy Holidays and Triple Kisses,

Melissa Sunjaya and Tulisan Team

The “First Batch of 12” comprises the following signature articles: Beach Bag, Hobo Tote, Librarian Tote, Tea Towel, and Apron. Cushion Covers series will also come in the following week.

Mail Orders are available only for delivery within Indonesia.
