OLIVEWOOD HANDCRAFTS
@ Palestine Online Store

Palestine Online Store is pleased to bring you this selection of carvings, handmade in Bethlehem by artisans who use pruned olive tree wood.

Many woodworkers in Bethlehem have seen their businesses suffer due to the Israeli occupation and its restrictions on movement. The trade that once came from steady streams of tourists has been dramatically reduced. By purchasing these carved olive wood products, you are helping support these craftspeople in earning a livelihood for their families.

Shipping & Handling: A flat-fee of $6.00 is added to all orders (for the entire order); for international orders, there is an additional shipping surcharge, reflected in the "international orders" price.

Please note that because these items are handmade, no two pieces are identical, so there will be slight variations from what you see in the photos (for example, the shades of wood will be different).

Please scroll down to view ten available selections, ranging in price from $3 to $60..
