Why Olive Wood?

The olive tree is native to the Holy Land where it has been cultivated since ancient times. According to historians, the first olive groves took root in the Holy Land and along the coast of the eastern Mediterranean around 4,000 B.C.

About Olive Wood

The olive tree is native to the Holy Land where it has been cultivated since ancient times. According to historians, the first olive groves took root in the Holy Land and along the coast of the eastern Mediterranean around 4,000 B.C.

The Olive Tree

The olive tree is ideal for the environment all through the West Bank, especially in the area around Bethlehem. It does not need much soil for its roots to flourish, nor does it require much water to grow, but its lifetime spans generations.

Making of Olive Wood

All the olive wood figurines and arts that we produce are hand carved from the trimmings (pruning) of the olive trees, which is an essential process for a healthier growth for the trees and to generate environmental stability.

No tree is damaged or destroyed in the process.
