Yangoru bilum


Once more, this bilum (string bag) lived up to its name at the recent East Sepik Provincial Day in Port Moresby.

Carried by a University of PNG student from the area, this particular bilum stood out in a crowd comprising of dark body paints and red and dull green coloured provincial flags.

Unlike the common smaller bilums carried with pride by most who are from Yangoru or associated with the area, this bilum was below knee length and stretched out in width.

Rebecca Lus is the proud weaver.
