This authentic bilum originates from Telefomin in Western Papua New Guinea in Sandaun Province. The string used to hand weave this beautiful piece is meticulously handcrafted from tulip, a natural fibre produced in the region using ancient processing techniques. The accents and patterns within the piece are reflections of the weavers creativity, skill and story. Telefomin bilums are incredibly soft and highly sought after. The remoteness of Telefomin, means these special bilums are relatively rare, making them even more unique and special.  

Bilums are stretchy and designed to expand to accommodate your goods, so exact measurements vary. Each bilum is completely unique and one-of-a-kind, connecting you and it’s maker forever.

 

- This piece has a shorter strap and very wide body.
