Qweens Co bilum bags are handwoven with local acrylic fibres and crafted using the same techniques as traditional weaving. This fusion of ancient craftsmanship and modern materials results in bilums that reflect both heritage and contemporary designs.

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.
