'Bilum' is the Papuan word used to describe the long and meditative process of weaving these intricate bags. Bilum is a traditional craft of the tribal women of the Papua region - the patterns they weave with the vibrant colours all symbolise different aspects of life.

The women of Papua sling these bags over their shoulders or wrap them around their forehead and commonly use them to carry anything from yams and papaya from the market to their babies cosily confined in the bilum cocoon.

All these pieces at SOUQ are vintage and were sourced directly from weavers on a trip to the West Papua area. True works of art to cherish and support the women of Papua.
