Sepik Bilum

This type of Bilum originates from the Sepik region. The bush twine used to weave the Bilum is made from 100% natural fibre using the traditional technique of hand rolling plant fibres into twine over the knee. The twine has been dyed using natural pigments made from plants and ochres. 

The design and pattern are inspired by the weaver's life experience and her surrounds, commonly nature. It has been embellished with a raffia tassel and pom in bright yellow in Madagascar.

With the sale of this bag the weaver is able to provide support to her family through access to education, food and health care.

Dimensions approx 35cm wide x 39cm long x 111cm strap length
