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.
