Among Equals | Highlands Bilum Bag | Pink Hibiscus
The Among Equals Bilum bags are handwoven by artisan weavers in Papua New Guinea. The non-profit brand is committed to honouring and promoting this ancient tradition on a global platform. Every Among Equals Bilum is unique, a one-of-a-kind work of art particular to the weaver and her home in Papua New Guinea - along the Sepik River, The Highlands or Telefomin regions.
Traditionally, these bags were used to carry hefty loads such as oranges and potatoes, and even serve as hammocks for sleeping babies. Today, we celebrate their art - each bilum bag captures the weavers craft and her story.
This Bilum was lovingly woven by Galonto Kolin in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea. It was woven using recycled fibres. The women use natural dyes to colour the yarn. Handmade raffia pom and tassel.
All Among Equals Bilum bags are hand crafted using traditional knowledge passed down through the generations and can take up to 6 weeks to make.
