Bethlehem is well known as the birth place of Jesus, and now many craftsmen and artisans call Bethlehem home.
Throughout the years, churches in the Holy Land have used art to teach the Biblical message to the people. Over time, art has become the people’s Bible.
The olive wood artists’ craft began in Bethlehem in the fourth century, following the construction of The Nativity Church. The Church was built on what is believed to be the traditional birth place of Jesus. At that time, monks taught the local residents how to carve olive wood, and the tradition was passed down until it was refined and perfected.
All the olive wood figurines and arts that we produce are hand carved from the trimmings (pruning) of the Bethlehem olive trees.
This is an essential process for healthier growth of the trees and to generate environmental stability. So NO TREE IS DAMAGED OR DESTROYED IN THE PROCESS.
Here you could find high quality religious items for individuals and for Churches , our products are guaranteed to have the highest quality and the lowest price that you could find anywhere because we work directly with Christian families living in Bethlehem that carve olive wood .

All carvings made of this genuine hard olive wood have a varying and smooth grain, making every piece extraordinarily unique. It is very difficult to match the grain of two pieces since the pattern is completely hidden in the heart of the wood. Mediterranean olive wood is heavy, dense and durable with a distinctive red pigment in its grain. These Olive wood carvings come only from the trimmings of olive trees, which is an essential process for healthy and proper growth of the trees, and to promote environmental sustainability. The olive wood is then dried and cured before it is used for carving.
