The Goroka Bilum Weaver Cooperative was founded in 2003 by Florence Kamel, in Goroka, Eastern Highlands Province of Papua New Guinea. It is a collective of female weavers from the area. The Co-op enables artisans to improve their economic and social situation, whilst at the same time preserving the tradition of indigenous crafts.
In 2011, many of the Co-op's weavers were commissioned to weave a huge 10 x 3 meter one sided Bilum "Kalibobo" in sunset kalaway.
