The shape of our Metropole Bag was designed after the American retro bowling bag from the 1990s. Its half-moon silhouette offers a luxurious space to carry a jacket, digital tablet, or umbrella on top of the daily essentials. It can be carried by its short handles or as a cross-body sling bag.
The illustrated collection of ‘Ruba’iyat of Amma Supahilo’ is one of Melissa’s most celebrated works, first launched by Tulisan in 2010. You can read the story here.
- The interior of the bag uses our signature lining. This lining fabric is a highly durable water-repellent fabric, created using the most advanced technology from recycled PET bottles and post-consumer materials.
- Comes with a dustbag, made from pure cotton textile.

Due to our hand-made serigraphy process, every printing on each product is unique and varied from one to another. It is impossible to choose the printing of each product to be exactly the same on the showcased photos on our site or social media. These photos are for visual references of the products’ shapes only. The colours and alignments will never be the same from one print to another due to this manual labour.
