Purchasing handicrafts made by local Christians in Bethlehem who are paid a fair price for their work both provides yourself with a beautiful natural reminded of Jesus Christ but also supports the presents of Christians in the land of Christ

The olive tree is probably the most significant plant mentioned in both the New and Old Testament. The olive has been the symbol of peace, wisdom, glory, fertility, power and pureness.  It is an evergreen which can grow for thousands of years. The olive trees of Jerusalem are pruned to remove the hard wood and open the tree so new growth can provide a bountiful cop of olives the next year. This hard and beautiful timber is used by local craftsmen for carving. Today, the cottage industry is a major source of income for the Christians of Bethlehem.

The carving of Olive wood crafts is a very labor intensive practice with much of the carving done by hand.
