Away in a Manger Nativity Set
A natural yet dazzling nativity, hand crafted from sinnamay and fibres from the abaca tree, a sustainably grown plant indigenous to The Philippines. These fibres have been woven by hand by skilled weavers who’ve inherited hundreds of years of experience of crafting with abaca.
Each character in this eco-friendly nativity has his or her own pose and outfit, dyed by hand. A few golden details here and there will reflect nearby lamplight or candlelight and bring the scene to life for years to come.
