Hand crafted from olive wood by the artisans of the Holy Land Handicraft Co-operative Society, Bethlehem.

A fine example of the crafts and traditions of Palestine, these olive wood products help balance out the seasonal olive trade and so alleviate local poverty, decrease unemployment, increase incomes, decrease emigration, and sustain the Palestinian handicraft industry. They are all fairly traded, and some of the wood comes from the farmers supported by the  “Tress for Life” scheme, run by the Palestine Fair Trade Association.
