Genuine Hand Made Papua New Guinea Bilum (looped string bag)
Bespoke Bilum Bag from Papua New Guinea, handmade the traditional way by a mum in the village. This pattern is the traditional pattern for the Saussia District in the East Sepik Province. Would you believe that the mum separates the wool into strands and re-twists it the traditional way by rolling the threads back and forth across her thigh? Amazing! This BILUM (Bee-Loom) is strong, colourful, approx. 40cm x 50cm and can be used as a handbag, shopping bag or wall decoration.
Sizes are approximate and some colours may vary from the photos, I will try to add this info for each individual Bilum.
********Profits from sales will go back to the women in the village, they are very keen to make Bilums for you as this brings them income that they wouldn't normally have. Most of the mothers in the villages have no way to earn a living and live the traditional way they've been living for centuries********
Thank you for supporting the women in the villages in the Saussia District of East Sepik Province, Papua New Guinea.
