Our mission is to empower the weavers of Papua New Guinea by generating life-changing income for marginalised women living in underprivileged settlements in Port Moresby. Each Bilum takes around six weeks to make and communicates life stories through pattern and colour.

From the proceeds the weavers are able to support their families and pay for crucial services such as a school bus which connects students from remote regions to daily learning.
