Pamper yourself in this romantic collection of ‘Sweetnite’, including artist-illustrated edition canvas bags, totes, wallets, purses, compartments, pouches, and accessories. The printed textile features Melissa Sunjaya’s illustration of Polianthes Tuberosa, the iconic flower of East Java. Like in all Melissa’s drawings, this edition also unfolds a narrative fragment:
“She stands barefoot on the balcony watching the dancing soldiers of Jathilan. Some folk believe that Jathilan is a dance hiding the secret spirit of the great Java War, to blind the enemy from our desire for freedom. She too has this desire, to be free and wild. It is a mystical night perfumed with uncertainties. A falling star suddenly paints a momentary hope. As if her angel in the sky hears my silence, whispering to heal her loneliness. I kiss her soft lips and press her hands. In between us, there is a time that I wish to freeze. In one thousand magical dreams, I am forever madly in love with my ‘sweetnite’.”
–Melissa Sunjaya, 2020.
