This beautifully handcrafted piece is not just a bag but a testament to the skill and tradition of the tribal communities in which it originates—meticulously crafted using fibrous tissues sourced from the Pandanus Palm and Tulip Trees and Reed Grasses.
These materials have been used for generations to make Bilums.
