Christmas Nativity in Handmade Felt
A child friendly nativity set made from handcrafted wool in Bethlehem, this charming nativity comes in three sizes.
It is 100% handmade from locally sourced wool that is sheared by a woman shepherdess. So in addition to generating income for the folks at Ma'an Lil Hayyat who make the felt, this project also generates income for the shepherdess' family.
Nativities include Joseph, Mary and Baby Jesus inside as well as a sheep and are shaped like a manger with a star on top.
Ma’an Lil Hayyat is a wonderful initiative for people with disabilities. Located in a historic house in the heart of the old city of Bethlehem, this project buys wool from a woman (who has put her kids through college on this income!) and processes it by hand into felt. Members of this initiative come to socialize and work in a supportive and fun environment, creating beautiful pieces from wool they make.

What if I want to ship to a U.S. address?
You're in luck, our products are actually stored in California, so you're only paying for U.S. domestic shipping. But before that, processing takes a few days on our side before our volunteer in California gets your package to the post office.
Domestic shipping takes 3-5 days depending on shipping destination. Once orders ship, we'll email you a confirmation with tracking (for domestic) or customs (for international) numbers.
It is your responsibility to track and, if necessary, follow up with customs to get your package.
How much does it cost?
Shipping rates are automatically calculated at checkout based on product weight.
Where else do we ship to?
We ship via USPS. Shipping is available to most countries, let us know if your country is not included and we will add it :)
Additionally, we offer international shipping* options from Palestine, in case you are interested in a handicraft that isn't available in our online collection or in custom orders.
What happens if I put the wrong shipping address or don't my package out of customs?
No problem! Your item will be sent back to our us, and you will be need to cover shipping cost.
What are the shipping options from Palestine?
Registered Post takes from 10-20 days. Price will be calculated at check out based on weight. Registered post can only be tracked until it leaves the post facility in Occupied Palestine.
Eco-Post takes up to 10 days. Price will be calculated at check out based on weight. This option allows for tracking package until arrival at destination.
EMS (for any orders greater than 2 kilos) takes from up to 10 days. Price will be calculated at check out based on weight.
We ship from Palestine on Sundays and Wednesdays. So orders placed by Saturday or Tuesday are sent out the next day.
Why did I pay more than the amount on the shipping label?
Please know that there are other costs before we get to shipping. When you receive your package, you'll notice that the shipping cost on the box is not the same as what you paid. We have to get items from the cooperatives all over Palestine and then ship to you. Thank you for your order, your patience, and your support!
*some countries are excluded from Palestinian shipping options.
