People in the Holy Land are very simple and depend mainly on agriculture for their livelihood. They live by farming and raising animals. 

Bethlehem Handicrafts’ family chose to live their life going in a different direction. We took Bethlehem’s olive wood carving as our profession. 

At our workshop in Bethlehem, we carve unique olive wood religious items with the best quality and originality. You can find at our workshop a variety of hand carved olive wood like hand-carved crosses, olive wood statues, olive wood jewelry, olive wood Nativity sets and hand carved olive wood utensils. 

The people in the Holy Land are very hospitable people who love sharing with the whole world about their country and culture. Our houses are open to everybody from any region in the world.
