Mom’s Best Friend: The Beach Tote

DSCF2136

We get a lot of moms coming into the store looking for a bag that is both functional for their little munchkins’ needs and their own but that is also not covered in teddy bears. Don’t get us wrong, we LOVE teddy bears, dolls & toys but sometimes, it’s just wonderful to bask in the glory of being a lady.

One of the bags that everyone loves, is the beach bag.

DSCF2140Here is why.
There are a two really handy pockets that fit bottles up to 1.5 liter (milk, water, juice), and the best part is that it stands upright when you set it down, so no spills! We like to use a couple cubes or organizers for diapers, wet wipes, and an extra set of clothes but they fit well without them too. There is enough room for a few tupperwares for snacks and solid food as well.

DSCF2158The bag itself is really light so there you don’t have an extra “child” to carry around. We also love that is has a snap button closure for easy access.
DSCF2161For all your own stuff, you know your phone, your wallet, there is a zippered compartment to keep them safe.

And finally, all of our bags are so easy to clean! A warm, damp, cloth with a natural cleaner or just some mild soap and you are done.

This bag solved my diaper bag problems, we hope it helps you!

Triple kisses,
Melissa

Profile: Della Nathalia

Posted on Grey, Nero, Studio | No Comments

WP_DELLA_1

It is Christmas day and close to dawn, for the past seven hours I only thought about Della Nathaliaour technical designer who has joined our team for two years. At the end of this year, she will be leaving Tulisan and progressing to another professional experience. It is hard to face this truth, for she is by far the best apprentice in design whom I have ever met during my twenty years of being a visual mentor and practitioner. With all honesty, she is determined and hardworking individual who is adamant in delivering the best under all circumstances.

WP_DELLA_2C

Della has been involved in many duties and responsibilities at Tulisan, from the most difficult problem-solving tasks to the most unimaginable roles, such as modeling for our look-book photography.

WP_DELLA_3

With her slender figure and graceful composure, she was always ready and accommodating all my needs during the photo shoot, both as a photo subject and as a set assistant. It was extremely easy to work with her and painless to art direct her.

WP_DELLA_4

Della has always been supportive and dedicated to her work, to her co-workers and to her parents. Everyday before this young woman goes to work at Darmawangsa Square, she starts her day super early, around 4 – 5 am, to help her parents’ business selling Indonesian snacks. Regardless of her family obligations, she has never been late to work.

WP_DELLA_5

At work, Della is responsible in creating the technical package for all our soft goods. She takes this meticulous job seriously, proudly and diligently. It was these attitudes that have propelled her to becoming our most trustable source in R&D, regardless of her non-creative and logic oriented academic background in accounting.

WP_DELLA_6

I remember of one early Sunday, at 7 am, she woke me up to develop the prototype of Lilliput Tote at our atelier. Even under an extremely bad weather, agonizing traffic jams, or weak physical condition, Della has never given me any excuse to be absent from her work. She was always around to support both our Design department and R&D team.

WP_DELLA_7

Della is a dependable team player, an honest apprentice and a loyal friend. All of us will miss her a great deal.

WP_DELLA_8

She embodies many qualities that I seek as a one of Tulisan’s guardians and ambassadors.

WP_DELLA_9

I admire the fact that she always acts boldly without any prejudice.

WP_DELLA_10

Della is a die-hard perfectionist when it comes to her work. Often I wish that she can confront mistakes more openly, because life always takes us to an unexpected turn. The ability of embracing our imperfections and mistakes gives us a deeper understanding of our true beauty.

WP_DELLA_11

We are a small team chasing for a big dream. Each member is required to take on many responsibilities in sales, design, R&D, marketing and finance. We can always count on Della, when it comes to handling cashier’s duty, customer care or as a brand spokes person. She has given us the confidence that she can complete these duties well.

WP_DELLA_12

I get frustrated from how hectic and messy Della’s work space gets. When I expressed my discontent to her, she would try to calm me down by assuring me that it was an organized mess and that in fact everything was in order. I find that cute and annoying at the same time. At least, we can be frank to each other.

WP_DELLA_13

She has also been in charge of building many of our exhibit installations and designing our planogram (a systematical technical plan of arranging visual merchandising based on a specific retail objective). This is a job that requires both strong logic and powerful imagination.

WP_DELLA_14

Della carries and maintains a special toolbox which contains essential hardware instruments and measuring gadgets for building exhibition sets. Once we timed ourself in building one of the sets (as shown in the picture above), and it took 30 minutes for the two of us, crazy ladies, to complete the exhibit.

WP_DELLA_15

Della takes our company’s vision close to her heart, every morning she part-takes in a team effort in caring for our work-space and making it a pleasant and clean environment.

WP_DELLA_16

In 2011, Fadly, our Chief of Financial Officer, brought her in for the first time so that she can intern as an accountant. Della was Fadly’s student in Atmajaya University. Her very first duty was to account all assets, raw materials, and finished goods inventory. I believe that this was a very good foundation for her to build her passion and trust in my ideas for Tulisan.

WP_DELLA_17

I have enjoyed every minute of this journey with her. I wish for her to be a solid leader who always march forward with confidence and content.

WP_DELLA_18

To our Black Beauty, Merry Christmas and kisses to you, Melissa Sunjaya.

A Self-fulfilling Pursuit

by Athina Ibrahim

WP_JOU_1310DELLA_01

“Our first responsibility is to ourselves – to be true to our sense of right and wrong, our sense of purpose and meaning. That’s how we contribute to the world. Anyone who is able to do that for him or herself is already contributing a great deal of human potential into our collective, shared pool of humanity.”Maria Popova of Brain Pickings.

Upon first impression, Della Nathalia exudes a cool and composed sense of being. She carries herself in such a thoughtful matter, often constructed with precision. Her choices of clothing undertones her interest for simplicity without being understated — classic, neat cuts, combined with occasionally colorful tones. Nothing that blatantly hurt the eye.

Her focus grabs the attention of those around her. She talks when necessary and joins the rowdy conversation of office breaks when needed. When it calls for work, she gets her concentration gear on and keeps distraction at bay.

Walking side by side, I cannot help but be engross in the sense of determination of her stride. Della remains calm as we sit for a cup of coffee. She eventually relaxes when I make a joke confirming of my intention to keep the conversation casual. Despite intruding her personal space with a recorder ready on the table.

It was only during minutes into our talk that her disposition changed. She slightly panics when the conversation revolved around her. Often, breaking into a nervous giggle when I ask about her personal achievements.

Maybe it is too difficult to lay it all out. For almost two years, Della has undergone a series of transformation. Joining Tulisan, she started as an accounting intern. As time went by, she was placed into different departments as learning experience to find what fits her capabilities. From an accountant to working under branding and marketing, before finally grabbing the responsibility she holds till this day: a technical designer.

WP_JOU_1310DELLA_02

“I have a very strong sense of logic in calculation and imagining form,” she repeatedly exclaims, when asked about her final transition. She boldly jumped into the opportunity when presented by Tulisan’s owner Melissa Sunjaya. Being a technical designer at Tulisan encompasses various different aspects. An eye and sensitivity for detail is necessary to carry out this type of activity. Her days comprises of researching new fabrication methods, testing components, constructing product prototypes to developing cutting patterns with Zero Waste principle and reviewing final bills of materials.

Beyond that, is where the challenge may lie. Being a technical designer at Tulisan surpasses creating only patterned forms, you also need a humanistic approach in overseeing the artisanal fabrication methods done by the production team. Discipline to accommodate a standardized process can only be achieved with a certain sternness, ability to multi-task and and an acute awareness of Tulisan’s values and work ethic when operating each tasks – an extremely high requirement that not all can master, but Della takes with serious consideration.

WP_JOU_1310DELLA_03

The roots of her logic may date back from her school years, when everyone was engulfed in romantic novels and Chiclit (Chic Literature), Della was obsessed with the proper structure of language. To my surprise, by high-school, she managed to pull-off writing her own novel only because she was irritated by the disarranged usage of language in novels of her age. Instead her daily readings then were by experienced literalist as Mira W. and W. Lestari. Her affinity for linguistic has grabbed her attention since.

Everything about Korea — the language, the films, and overall culture — maybe something that has captured her interests today, but she has grown up with a liking for so many other languages — Japanese and Chinese included. And language doesn’t defer to only structure and logic, it bears a cultural context to it. Language has its prose and poetic form – making it an equally beautiful and abstract form of art. Maybe, without her noticing it, a sense for the aesthetics have already been embedded in her since a young age. Despite her claiming only learning about aesthetics at this present age.

Her greatest influence are Melissa and Melissa’s Mother, Didi Hersubeno, giving her responsibilities and often visual guidelines on the proper way of designing the visual interiors of the store or even booths that bear Tulisan’s product elsewhere. She remarked her current environment at Tulisan is what made her more bold in her visual sense. Although, she claimed she probably would not be seen around with a pop-color scarf she pointed out I was wearing.

At a young age of 23 years old, Della remains dedicated to her work. Different from her peers who continue pursuing what they are most familiar with academically. Della continues to do the things that give her personal fulfillment. She hopes to see Tulisan flourishing worldwide, while being able to produce a product of her own once she has completely mastered the design and crafting techniques involved in making her responsibility as technical designer whole.

Ariani, the Woman behind the Wheels

WP_ARIANI_01

Ariani is a caring and powerful woman with a big heart and exotic eyes. She began working with me in 2011 to further develop Tulisan’s vision and build a healthy production infrastructure.

WP_ARIANI_02

Her passion for the performing arts has given her an enduring appreciation for classical music and the piano. When Ariani turned 18, she started giving private piano lessons at the Yayasan Pendidikan Musik, a highly regarded music school in Jakarta. Teaching requires compassion and determination, two qualities Ariani embodies.  But, it was her exceptional analytical and math skills that lead her to major in Computer Science at Binus University. This field of study allowed her to delve into the world of hard coding and logic.

WP_ARIANI_03

Ariani’s rare skill set, characterized by a seamless blend of the arts and applied science, has made her an invaluable asset at Tulisan. As head of our research and development department she guides our team with compassion and discipline.

WP_ARIANI_05

For her, it has always been a priority to listen to her team members in order to lead effectively. The biggest joy in her work comes from having the freedom to express herself while upholding the strong fundamental values of our company’s work ethic.

WP_ARIANI_09

To date, one of Ariani’s proudest achievements was leading KDM for the Home – a manufacturing program for Tulisan’s Home Collection in conjunction with Kampus Diakonia Modern (KDM), a non-profit organization which rescues children from the streets of Jakarta. The goal of this initiative was to create a sustainable program aimed at generating fair employment opportunities for women and young people who live in the surrounding rural areas.

WP_ARIANI_04

Over a period of several months Tulisan team members trained participants from KDM until they mastered the fine artisanal skills, discipline, and self confidence needed to sustain a business. Tulisan constructed a work area for the students to practice their craft.

WP_ARIANI_06 Tulisan’s Home Collection is a direct result of this labor of love – each product has been made with fairness and goodwill.WP_ARIANI_07

Ariani’s believes that the secret to happiness is working with passion. She hopes that one day she will be able to incorporate her talent for the performing arts into her work at Tulisan.

WP_ARIANI_08We will be launching these fresh color prints of Luca Blue Note and Luca Green Lime
on Monday, 25 November 2013 at Tulisan Boutique, in Darmawangsa Square City Walk.

Save the date and meet us there for a bag signing session from 09.00 to 15.00 !
Triple kisses, Melissa

Namarina 8th Season Performance

Posted on Art, Life, Nero, Travel | No Comments

WP_NAMARINA8_01Whatever you have planned this weekend, you don’t want to miss 8 by Namarina Youth Dance! The performance will be showing twice at the Gedung Kesenian Jakarta: on Saturday, 23 November at 8.00 pm and on Sunday, 24 November at 4.00 pm. Admission: IDR200,000.  Tickets: namarina@indosat.net.id or call +62 21 829 4777.WP_NAMARINA8_02

“8″ has been used as symbols since 5,000 BC. To the ancient Egyptian, “8″ symbolized the cosmic order; to the ancient Greek it meant love and friendship; to the Chinese it represents the universe; to the Japanese it is a symbol of multiplicity; and when positioned horizontally it becomes the mathematical symbol for ‘infinity’.

WP_NAMARINA8_03

One subject can be viewed differently, and this is exactly what this production is all about. With different cultural and technical backgrounds, three Asian choreographers interpret Western-based dance forms and make it their own. Jeffrey Tan from Singapore explores ballet in contemporary approach, Kim Jae Duk of South Korea lays out his expression in modern manner, while NYD’s very own Dinar Karina expresses her ideas with her own jazz style in one number, and embracing the local traditional dance in her ballet piece.

WP_NAMARINA8_04

Jeffrey Tan came from a classical background, and was former Principal Dancer and Resident Choreographer with The Singapore Dance Theatre. Currently Jeffrey is the Principal of The Singapore Ballet Academy. 

WP_NAMARINA8_05Kim Jae Duk received the Best New Dancer Award in 2010 from The Modern Dance Promotion of Korea, and aside from being the Artistic Director of his own company, Modern Table, Jae Duk is also the current Associate Choreographer for T.H.E. Dance Company, Singapore.

WP_NAMARINA8_06 The performance will be held for 2 (two) days, at Gedung Kesenian Jakarta, featuring Namarina Youth Dance dancers, two guest dancers, and also supported by Namarina Youth Dance Apprentice and selected students from Namarina School. WP_NAMARINA8_07 Dance pieces that will be featured in this production are Symbiotic Metamorphosis (by Jeffrey Tan), Second Hand (by Kim Jae Duk), Identity and Jegeg (by Dinar Karina).WP_NAMARINA8_08

Namarina Youth Dance (NYD) is a semi-professional dance company, established in 2006 with its roots in classical ballet while incorporating traditional culture, with hopes to be able to put Indonesia on the map of the dancing world. NYD was initiated with the aim to become a vessel to nurture and develop the many talents of young Indonesian dancers, and to improve the position of dancing as a profession in society. Moreover, Namarina Youth Dance also carries a mission to participate in the development of healthy, creative and character-rich Indonesian dancing heritage and to take part and enrich Indonesia’s cultural life.

Thank you for Ernst & Young EWW 2013

Posted on Grey, Nero, Studio | No Comments
The Founding Artist

The Founding Artist

Thank you with all my heart to all my beloved team, dearest friends and family who have supported me in winning the Ernst & Young Entrepreneurial Winning Women 2013.

In my humble opinion, earning this award will grant an elevated perspective to the profile of any growing business. A perspective that would open doors to many new possibilities and would earn trust based on the essence of our business. The major obstacles that I have continued to overcome in starting this brand have always been about building the system from ground zero, setting our own standards, and establishing an impressive track record in order to validate our concepts and earn trust from the related parties we work with. Earning this highly regarded award would give confidence to my young team, would raise the barometer of our commitment, and would propel our brand to a noble ground.

Tulisan will never be a place for one solo artist with vested personal ambitions. It is an honest and clean company that is dedicated to empowering others, celebrating individuality, and caring for our world. The organizational structure has been designed to reflect a guild that accommodates artists from different disciplines and honors all forms of art from illustration, literature, music, cinematography, dance, ceramic to wood work. The manufacturing methodology has been planned carefully to showcase Indonesia’s finest artisanal craftsmanship and excellence in production quality. The design principles of our base products have always been simple and pure, which appeal to a universal audience. With this groundwork set in motion, Tulisan is preparing a blueprint for a stage that is ocean deep. A stage where a label imprinting ‘Jakarta’ will tell a different story about this city and will be a spotlight witnessed by many nations for the first time in history.

Without further ado, it takes courage, determination and constant discipline from each individual to break through the conventional molds so that we can project our very best of our beings and compose our blueprints into reality within the near future. I have hand-picked a team of young willful individuals who together have self-taught themselves in becoming a potent team of experts in the daily operations of Tulisan. As the captain of this team, I choose to devote my time in mentoring these individuals to be free thinkers, entrepreneurs and leaders.

Triple kisses from Jakarta with Love,
Melissa Sunjaya

Weekend Movie: Marley

Posted on Art, Nero | No Comments

I am a big fan of biography movies. I develop this weird interest of wanting to know why a person become the person they are, and not many can be as big as Bob Marley – making this movie on top of my list to watch.

WP_JOU121024_MAR_05The movie went chronologically, starting from Nine Mile, Bob’s hometown in Jamaica where he was agonized with his mixed-race background to his struggle with poverty as he moved to Trench Town.

WP_JOU121024_MAR_04Marley’s powerful music and honest lyrics were results of complex upbringing: of society ignorance and corruption, of compulsive bureaucrats that care nothing but political power.

WP_JOU121024_MAR_01
Emancipating ourselves from mental slavery is a journey that requires perseverance and virtue. It was never meant to be easy.

WP_JOU121024_MAR_02

Yet, even though none but ourselves can free our mind, having portraits of Marley in Tulisan’s studio surely help :)Rassi Narika

Camden Market

Posted on Life, Red, Studio | No Comments

JOU_CAMDEN04

Since 1974, Camden Market has been the most popular open-air market in London, showcasing handmade arts and crafts. It is a very eccentric district and is also known as the birthplace of Rock and Britpop artists. Many music legends such as Sex Pistols, Jimi Hendrix, The Stone Roses, and Amy Winehouse had started their carrier and made their marks in this place. Prince (a.k.a. ‘The Artist’) started his own purple painted shop in Chalk Farm Road.

JOU_CAMDEN06In 1988, I used to live in London and visited Camden Town on every other weekends to buy vintage street signs and biscuit tins. I remembered the alleys, the market, and the street musicians. What inspired me the most from this place was the street artists selling hand-lettering and pen-ink sketches. In fact, it was the year when I started to take my first art studio class in pen and ink. From Camden, I knew that I love typography, that I am crazy about sketching and that one day I will open my own painted shop.

JOU_CAMDEN05

I would like to relive this memory by creating Tulisan’s version of ‘Camden Market’. Please come and share this reminiscence of 1988 with me at Grand Indonesia, Sky Bridge, Floor 3A, on 11-17 February 2013. I will have a limited number of blank cards with my very first pen & ink sketches that were created when I was fifteen.

Triple kisses,

Melissa
