Among Equals is a not-for-profit aimed at empowering bilum weavers of Papua New Guinea through ethical trade.
We seek to do this by providing weavers with greater income from the sale of their bilum, opening up further markets internationally, and to help provide the weavers with more certainty and sustainability of income.
Please watch our film below. It was made by Maximilian Homaei in 2017 on our second visit to Papua New Guinea.
We are committed to preserving the creative practice of bilum weaving for future generations, as well as encouraging direct buying from the weavers themselves.
The women are key decision makers in choosing their own working hours, place of work and setting the price of their bilum.
