Among Equals - Bilum Bag


A hand crafted, natural fibre, naturally dyed Bilum bag from not for profit organisation, Among Equals.

Sourced from the Sepik River region of Papua New Guinea, this Bilum is distinct in weave and style. Fibre is sourced from surrounding vegetation including the Sisal and Pandanus plant, laboriously beaten, twisted into string and then woven.

Weavers expertly utilise natural dyes made from plants, ochres and berries to enhance their patterns.

This beautifully hand-crafted bag comes with a hand crafted sisal pom and tassel, in complementary colours.

Fibre: sisal, pandanus.

Size: approx 45cm x 35 cm, with an enormous carrying capacity and strength from the weave
