Martha & Wulan Tilaar

“Martha has a regular sharing session with her husband in the early mornings. During this time, she gets many ideas that she shares with Wulan, her successor at Martha Tilaar.”

A successful businesswoman and devoted philanthropist, Martha Tilaar has been known by these two designations for decades. She has dedicated her life to building her eponymous business empire that has improved Indonesia’s beauty sector by using authentic natural ingredients found in the motherland, while also empowering Indonesian women. She is indeed one of the most influential women in the country’s history.


Together with her daughter, Wulan Tilaar, who has been helping her run the Martha Tilaar Group since 2005, the mother and daughter shared a lot of insights about their personal and professional lives. Born in entirely different eras, both Martha and Wulan have their own ways of seeing life and defining time.


Back in her busy career day or in her golden years now, Martha considers the time she spends with her husband and family as her finest hours. Whereas, Wulan cherishes the present moment as her finest hour, “The past is behind us, the future is yet to come. All we have is now, and every moment is a gift of life,” she imparted. Martha and Wulan Tilaar are both wearing Piaget Possession timepieces.
