Hand-carved Olivewood Angel Nativity Decoration
What better way to be reminded of the true meaning of the Christmas festival than a hand-carved, olive wood decoration, which you can place anywhere around your house – all the way from Bethlehem. The talented carvers who make these decorations are part of a group based in Bethlehem, who are members of the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO), helping to decrease unemployment, alleviate local poverty and keep alive a traditional craft industry in the area.
Farmed from the trees of Olea Europaea, olivewood is a hard and rich in colour wood, that is prized all around the world for its appearance, density, straight grain and fine texture; qualities which make it a stunning, investment piece for your home this Christmas. Measuring 8.5cm, this beautifully crafted nativity scene has a sturdy, olive wood base, meaning it can be placed on any flat surface in your home.
