Sisal Shoppers

These Bilum are joyful works of art, handcrafted by female artisans living along the Sepik River in Papua New Guinea. These inspiring women create the most unique weavings by hand-rolling plant fibres into bush twine and working with natural dyes made from plants and ochres, a traditional craft handed down through generations.

Each bilum takes around six weeks to make and communicates life stories through pattern and colour. It is our goal is to make change through empowering these inspiring communities.
