Ethical Jewellery and Bilums With Purpose.


Ethical Jewellery and Bags With Purpose.

A SOCIAL ENTERPRISE founded to empower WOMEN

We exist to honour and celebrate the traditional artisan skills of Papua New Guinean women whilst providing meaningful and fair employment.

We use wild harvested natural fibres creating additional income streams for local communities.

All our products are handcrafted using ancient Papua New Guinea weaving technique passed down through generations of women.

We employ artisans providing a safe, secure and stable income to support their families. We also support additional communities in PNG by purchasing bilums at a premium price. 

We help preserve ancient skills by honouring and valuing these skills in reimagined forms to create ongoing relevance.

Our hardware is of the highest quality and hypoallergenic.


what people are saying


My sister sent me one of your bilums for my birthday. I just wanted to tell you how beautiful it is. I live in France and the everyone at the local Sunday market ask me about it. Wishing you all the best with your enterprise!


I just got my earrings and they are Stunning!


I am in love with my new bag, and get compliments every time I use it. I am wondering if you would ever consider making a larger size in this style. Pretty please?


When I wear my earrings people always comment on them! I have given your name to three different people. I wear them with most outfits and they are always a conversation starter.


I bought a necklace for my daughter for her birthday and she also bought be earrings! I love the contemporary designs with the traditional weaving and I love that PNG weavers are employed to make them. They’re traditional but the designs are modern, contemporary and beautiful. I also LOVE the packaging. The earrings were a beautiful thing to receive, such a nice experience.  They’re a great brand with beautiful products.


Thank you Bilum & Bilas for making truly exquisite jewellery, for actively supporting artisan women, for having such amazing customer service and for enabling me to weave my incredible experiences in beautiful PNG into a bridal outfit that truly represented my whole self, life and passions. The Lik Lik Sunset Earrings and Tropical Wrap Bracelet will always remind me of our very special day and continue to bring immense joy as I wear them for years to come! 


Thanks so much for reaching out after the Four Corners episode last night! I very deliberately wore my Bilum and Bilas jewelry hoping to help promote PNG arts and design - so I'm pleased you noticed! I love my jewellery but have to admit that I had forgot your company name so doubly pleased you reached out so I can buy some more!!


The earrings are for my wedding and I’ll definitely send a photo of the earrings on the day! They're such a perfect blend of PNG & bridal.

Thank you for your beautiful jewellery!
