This gumba bilum “handbag” was made by Patronila Winjat who works with the Singu Arts cooperative in Middle Sepik River of Papua New Guinea. This is a new style that the weavers have developed with small double handles using their traditional patterns, gumba fibre and natural dyes.
Buying a bilum assists women who we work with to achieve autonomy, dignity and financial independence through the sale of their bilums.
Gumba Fibre bilums are made from small trees and the weavers use natural plant based dyes and as such are not designed to get wet. Please keep them dry.
