I started designing this Opera Bag in January 2022 as a classic, lightweight work bag. Its top hemispherical shape is inspired by 'stupa'—an essential feature of Java's ancient 'Candi' architecture. After exploring many forms and cutting patterns, I finally found an ideal proportion for my colorful day-to-day life. So far, I must say Opera is the culmination of my joyful bag-making experiments.

First, I named this design 'Opera' because its two-sided outer surface serves as a stage, showcasing the Original Editions (my narrative illustrations). The rounded top with double zippers displays a graceful look while providing a spacious opening for accessing its contents. The large interior compartments and pockets are practical for storing a mobile phone, a laptop (size 11" to 16"), or A4 folders. In addition, it comes with a Bien Strap in Smokey Night (110cm) that can be attached to the loops on the sides or inside the short handles, so you can carry it by hand, over the shoulder, or as a crossbody. By the way, there are two additional loops on the front of the short handles which can be used for attaching a key chain, a bag charm, or an extra pouch. A simple ring carabiner can be useful for hanging those additional small items. The carabiner is available in two sizes and sold separately.

This first Opera Bag marks its debut by featuring 'Contemplation', my pen-and-ink sketch. The drawing was a self-portrait in 2010 as I was reflecting on discovering an authentic identity representation. For years, I have been a bag addict who shamelessly hoards a mounting collection of vintage bags! However, I have not been satisfied and have been looking for a bag that represents myself. Since I did that drawing, I founded Tulisan and developed a passion for designing bags for people who think alike.

Thank you so much for collecting my handmade work of art, Melissa Sunjaya.

Aku mulai mendesain Opera Bag ini pada Januari 2022 sebagai tas kerja yang klasik dan ringan. Siluet atasnya yang menyerupai setengah bola terinspirasi dari 'stupa'—sebuah fitur esensial dari arsitektur Candi kuno di Jawa. Setelah mencoba berbagai bentuk dan pola pemotongan, akhirnya aku menemukan proporsi yang ideal untuk keseharianku yang selalu berwarna. Sejauh ini, aku harus berkata bahwa Opera adalah puncak dari berlapis eksperimenku yang menyenangkan dalam pembuatan tas.

Pertama, aku menamakannya 'Opera' karena kedua sisi permukaannya menjadi panggung untuk menceritakan Edisi Originals (karya ilustrasi yang bernarasi). Bentuk atas yang bundar dengan dua ritsleting mempersembahkan penampilan anggun, sembari memberi bukaan yang luas untuk mengakses isinya. Beberapa kompartemen dan kantung dalam interiornya berfungsi sebagai tempat penyimpanan perangkat seluler, laptop (ukuran 11" sampai 16") atau map berkas A4. Selain itu, tas ini dilengkapi dengan Bien Strap berwarna Smokey Night (110cm) yang bisa disambung pada kaitan di sisi samping atau bagian dalam tali pegangan pendeknya, supaya tas ini bisa kamu jinjing dengan tangan, bawa di bahu atau sebagai tas selempang. Ring carabiner sederhana dapat berguna untuk menggantung barang-barang kecil tambahan tersebut. Carabiner tersedia dalam dua ukuran dan dijual secara terpisah.

Opera Bag pertama ini menandai debutnya dengan menampilkan 'Contemplation', sketsa penaku. Gambar tersebut merupakan potret diri pada tahun 2010 saat aku sedang merenung untuk menemukan representasi identitas yang otentik. Selama bertahun-tahun, aku telah menjadi pecandu tas yang tanpa malu-malu menimbun banyak koleksi bentuk tas! Tapi aku tidak pernah puas dan selalu mencari tas yang benar-benar mewakili identitasku. Sejak aku menggambar itu, aku mendirikan Tulisan dan mengembangkan rasa cinta untuk mendesain tas untuk orang-orang yang berpikiran sama.

Terima kasih banyak untuk mengoleksi karya seni buatan tanganku, Melissa Sunjaya.
