Papua Noken Material as Alternative Products

About

Using traditional Papua weaving techniques to make new products from wood fibres

Papua Noken material is one of the most important traditional handicrafts for Papuan people, which has existed since ancestral times and remains in use today. The project aims to develop alternative products using this traditional yarn production process from bark fibres, and ultimately create new sustainable design items. This is done whilst respecting and valuing an ancient craft tradition, recognised by UNESCO as intangible cultural heritage.
