Tulisan for the Home

{ Tulisan for the Home } is a sustainable community program that I conceptualized and implemented through my brand TULISAN, to benefit the unemployed community of people who live around the premises of KDM. it is specifically designed to be viable, practical, and independent. These prerequisite principles have allowed me to create projects that can easily be conducted systematically and effectively while adapting to rural environments that often lack solid infrastructure. In most cases, the preliminary set up and vocational training for each program can take up to three months before transforming to be a continuous fruitful collaboration.


(1) to create employment opportunities in the rural area surrounding KDM to cultivate confidence, discipline, and fine skills of artisanal craftsmanship;
(2) to create our Home product category using this methodology until it reaches a dependable production delivery schedule which will allow this category to enter the international market place;
(3) to inspire others in making similar projects in rural areas by exposing the community development and individual improvement led by this project.


We invested our time in training to select participants for this project. Our senior artisan gave them hands-on tutorials on a daily basis for a three month period in our home atelier until they reached the desired level of craftsmanship. The organization which made this collaboration possible, KDM, built a special artisanal studio on its premises specifically for this project where TULISAN also donated sewing machines and crafting tools. Each participant is given an independent base payment, plus a percentage of sales that are divided equally amongst the team after basic operational costs have been deducted.


Within the first financial semester, the total earnings made by KDM through this project is equivalent to USD 6,000.

The total number of participants: 3 artisans. On an average scale, each participant is able to earn around USD300 on a monthly basis, a higher living standard where they can afford proper meals, housing, and education.
