bilum baby

    Newer Older

    look closely in the bag...

    this is called a 'bilum'

    it is an expanding bag that can carry anything from market produce, books, shopping and here...

    a large baby...

    the women put the handle around their head rather than their shoulders. they can carry a huge weight.

    i made three bilums when I lived in papuea New Guinea and I still have them.

      I wish I knew how to make bilums. I think I'll have to ask someone to teach me when I go back.
