We are so excited to share with you the handicrafts we've found for kids and babies! In addition to the beautifully hand crafted teething rings and nursing necklaces from Little Olea, an original line of Handmade Palestine, we also have these adorable wool camels, sheep and donkeys made by Bedoin women from Khan al Ahmar. Lastly, we are thrilled to feature handmade elephants wearing keffiyehs that are produced by Women in Hebron.
Back to Little Olea, these mama, baba, and baby teething accessories were born out of a need Handmade Palestine founder Morgan had when she had her baby. He started teething at the age of 2 months, and as a mama she wanted something natural and safe for her baby to chew on. Nothing was available locally other than plastic, so she decided to start making nursing necklaces from olive wood beads herself. Read more about Little Olea's Story
