Among Equals is a socially responsible brand that merges art and community with fashion and the ancient practice of Bilum weaving. 

Every bag is a unique work of art, handwoven by a female artisan from Papua New Guinea, the design captures her spiritual and cultural heritage, her story and her craft. Among Equals pays weavers a premium for each bilum created, allowing the tradition, and women-led businesses, to prosper in the modern world.

The yarns used are either a natural fibre, a wool mix or recycled acrylic fibres in unique colour palettes. The natural fibre is made from local trees found near the river and the dyes are made from berries and other plant-based ingredients. Each bag takes about six weeks to construct, during which time the weavers tell the stories that have inspired each design.

The bush twine used to weave this beautiful bilum is made by hand-rolling plant fibres over the knee. This medium size bilum (28cm wide) features a pattern inspired by the surrounding environment, lineage and life of the artisan.

We don't do fashion, we do quality clothing and accessories that will last. Items that are expertly crafted from the best materials.

Testimonials

I visited the Woolshed in Kyneton today and I was so impressed by the stock and the customer service. I purchased a linen top which was divine. The homewares are exquisite, linen throws/cushions and the woolen throws/cushions are just beautiful for the up coming autumn, winter season. Just a lovely shop that I would give 10/10.

I trusted Donna with colour description that was perfect, it was all very last minute. She carefully wrapped, express post. Now I know my Mum will be warm and comforted while I’m not there. Thankyou to the Woolshed and Donna.I’ll be back!
