NOKEN MANUFACTURING FROM PAPUA

During the Museum Embarkment Festival, two representants of the Bhayangkari - the association of the wifes of Indonesian policemen - from the Indonesian province of Papua will show the Weltkulturen Museum's visitors how the traditional Noken bags are made.

Nokens are traditional knotted bags from Papua made out of a single thread of plant fibres. Men as well as women use it to carry their harvest, fish, their shopping but also their children.

An employee of the consulate general of the Republic of Indonesia will be present to answer questions and provide translations.
