    Meet the Weaver:

    Artisan weaver Susan Delfin, 45, has been weaving for 30 years. She lives with her husband and four children and is a senior leader in her community. Susan uses the income she earns from bilum to support her family, providing schooling for her children. Weaving is her joy - an intricate snake pattern is her signature, woven in the brightest hues. 

  • About The Brand

    Not-For-Profit fashion brand Among Equals was founded by textile designer, Caroline Sherman, in 2015 after she fell in love with the craft of Bilum bags, which were on display at an expo in Sydney. 

    In 2015, Caroline made her first trip to Papua New Guinea to immerse in the weavers' world and view their annual Bilum Festival held in Goroka. During her travels, she met women from different regions and the idea for the Among Equals endeavour was cemented. Today, the brand works with communities across Papua New Guinea, including the Goroka, Mount Hagen, Telefomin and Madang regions, and is proud to count more than 2,000 weavers in its fold.

    Through its trade of Bilum, Among Equals is dedicated to improving the communities' well-being, including funding and construction of Blue Haus, a safe shelter for the weavers to come together, learn and weave.
