Chimbu Bilum, Highlands of Papua New Guinea. Bilums are woven in a unique continuous figure-eight knotting technique. They serve as pockets, purses, backpacks, grocery/game bags, baby carriers. They are used to store food, belongings, & ceremonial items. Virtually everyone in New Guinea carries one
I recently obtain some older bilums that have been in a collection for many years. They have all been used and show that. This old bilum is in good shape with no holes or major damage. It measurs 26 inches wide by 14 inches deep.
