Qweens Co bilum bags are handwoven using natural fibres from surrounding vegetation, hailing from the remote region of East Sepik Province, Eastern Highland Province, and Southern Highland Province. Sourced directly from these areas, these bilums showcase the authenticity of 100% natural materials, capturing the essence of their origin.

Skilled artisans invest approximately three weeks in the intricate process of weaving. This meticulous attention to detail ensures that each bilum is a one-off masterpiece, embodying the rich cultural heritage and craftsmanship behind this ancient art form.

Robust enough to use as an everyday bag, or hang as a sculptural art piece.
