Hand-Carved Olivewood Nativity Set
This beautiful, hand-carved nativity is not just a wonderful addition to your festive celebrations which will last season after season, but a true investment into the livelihoods of the artisans who produced it. Farmed form 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. The tasteful stable backdrop and nativity figures have been skilfully and intricately hand-carved from the wood, creating a real stand out nativity piece.
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. This would make an exquisite gift, or simply a wonderful addition to your Christmas decorations for home, workplaces, churches or even schools.
