Ma'an Lil Hayyat
Holiday Gnome in Handmade Felt
This adorable Christmas gnome comes in two sizes and is perfect for Christmas with his fuzzy beard!
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.
Small measures 5 x 20 centimeters
Medium measures 8 x 30 centimeters
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.
