TELEFOMIN BILUM PIECE 10

TELEFOMIN BILUM PIECE 10

170.00

This authentic bilum originates from Telefomin in Western Papua New Guinea in Sandaun Province. It is made from tulip fibre and is incredibly soft. Even the string used to hand weave this beautiful piece is meticulously handcrafted from natural fibres produced using ancient processing techniques. These bilums are rare and difficult to source due to the extremely remote area they come from and the traditional techniques used in making them.

Bilums are designed to be stretchy and expand to accommodate cargo, so we can not provide exact measurements. Each bilum is completely unique and one-of-a-kind, so the owner will forever be connected to its maker.

IMPORTANT:
Due to the handmade process and traditional fibres used to create your piece, imperfections are normal and add to the charm of your piece. Some natural softening and colour change may occur over time. For further information on how to care for your bilum piece please go to Care.
