Welcome to Bilum ...

Bilum is the Niuginian word for Bag. A bilum is hand woven bag made from natural and, these days, synthetic fibres. They are made from small to large. The larger ones often hang from the head holding a baby up to six months old. They are amazingly comfortable for the baby and being carried on the head frees up the hands for other things.

In this blog, I would like to discuss techniques and throw around ideas maybe show off some of my work.

I also want to showcase some of my other crafts and point to other craft sites on the 'Net that I think provide interest to the topics.
