The olive tree is the heart and soul of Palestine. Every year during the olive harvest, farmers prune their trees, which means we have mountains of pruned wood. These prunings are used by the olive wood artisans of Bethlehem to create Christmas nativities and Christmas tree ornaments, olive wood utensils, spatulas and more.
To maintain your olive wood crafts in a good state, it is recommended to wash with warm water, and not excessively wash with water and soap, then to dry it immediately after, and treat it with oil using a cloth. Please don't put in the washing machine!
