Founded by Maggie T Kera, the Project 2 Mile initiative helps marginalised women living in underprivileged settlements in Port Moresby. Its aim is to empower artisan weavers by generating life-changing income for the women and their families. Each Bilum takes around six weeks to make and communicates life stories through pattern and colour.

 Among Equals is a non-profit brand merging art, fashion and community with the ancient practice of Bilum weaving. Together with Project 2 Mile, we celebrate the weavers’ art and the idea that ethical fashion can be founded in time-honoured techniques, positive messaging and sustainable processes.
