Colourful Bilum - Zig Zag

  • This bilum is hand-woven from acrylic and wool yarn using a traditional weaving technique.
  •  The yarn is twisted by placing it on the weaver's thigh and is rolled in a backward and forward motion using hands.
  • The twisted yarns are then hand-woven into  bilum bags. This process takes a few weeks.
  • Bilums are very versatile and expandable.
  • Each bilum has a story and the patterns are a visual language and authentic to the women who weave them.

Dimensions:

  • 80cm shoulder strap
  • 39cm high
  • 41cm wide

These bilums help support the weavers and their families to have a stable income through our Project Two Mile initiative.
