The Bino Cup

Fressko aims to eliminate take-away cup culture by bringing you stylish, BPA-free, lightweight reusable coffee cups. We partnered with Fressko to produce this sustainable 8oz cup as a fundraiser for Femili PNG's vital case management services.

The Bino cup's stainless steel insulated inner keeps drinks hot for up to 3 hours while its outer stays cool to the touch. It also has barista-friendly measurement lines at 4oz, 6oz, & 8oz, and fits under standard coffee machines (and in most car cup holders!). The cup has a scratch-proof body, slip-resistant base and spill-proof screw on lid with a click lock.

L-Wengembo Artwork

The artwork on this cup was designed by Papua New Guinean artist Lesley Wengembo.

"The inspiration behind this design is the idea of woman as the backbone of Papua New Guinea, represented by a silhouette of a woman carrying a baby in a bilum. The mark-making in this image comes from my influences when I was young. The detail in the patterns is not repeated because I drew inspiration from different regions in PNG.

  • The design of the woman's head is from Momase region, resembling a Sepik mask.
  • Her shoulders are influenced by the lime bottle (for betel nut) from the Southern region.
  • The bilum is a mixture of island region designs, mostly inspired by New Ireland, with the spiral elements reflecting Southern influences.
  • The bottom half of the design combines elements from the Highlands with other regions too.
The image represents the shared and common role women play in PNG's community. They are the mothers of the nation and deserve respect."

 
Lesley was born in Goroka and raised in Port Moresby. He started painting in 2012 when he followed his mum to a monthly craft market at Moresby National Art Theatre. There, he saw the work of the late Martin Morobubuna and was influenced by his work.

In recent years Lesley's work has focused on hyper-realistic portraiture in oils. He loves painting faces and feels it connects him to his culture and Papa New Guinean identity. Lesley has been a two-time Archibald Prize entrant.
