Nukinu Bucket 2451

  • The Steps pattern is inspired by a woman's daily journey up the mountain steps. Everyday she comes down the steps to collect water and the things that she needs to sustain her family. She carries them back up to her house on the mountain side, sometimes walking alone and sometimes with friends. They share stories and laugh, bringing joy to a task that would otherwise be hard.

  • This Bilum is handwoven from acrylic and wool yarn as well as upcycled knitwear using traditional weaving techniques.

      Artisan weaver Aloma Joel, 29, lives with her husband and three children in Fanuifa, a small village in Goroka.

Aloma’s signature pattern is the Kundu design, a tribute to her mother who taught her the art of weaving.
