Say no to plastic ! Our collective efforts can make a difference.

 If we make a choice towards sustainable, ethically produced products that support the slow made movement, then it can only be a change for the better. Oak & Birch Bilums are genuine & made by women in villages of Papua New Guinea using traditional methods. Bilums are renowned for their superior strength, ability to expand to many times it’s resting size & are extremely lightweight. Our Bilums have been purchased straight from the women who create them. Their earnings mostly add support for school fee’s & putting food on the table.

How they are made:

Traditionally, bark is stripped from local trees & soaked in the creek or the sea. The bark is then laid in the sun to dry which also achieves this beautiful sun-bleached tone that you see now. Once dry, women begin the process of separating & rubbing the bark with her hand along her thigh to produce strands of twine. Each bag is then created using a knot less netting method.
