Product Description

Bring the delicate whimsy of songbirds into your holiday decor with this beautiful ornament! Our olive wood cutwork ornaments make a perfect choice for your own tree or tied as a decorative accent to the top of a gift.  

The wood carvers of Palestine have long depended on tourists as their source of income. The conflict with Israel has made the region so volatile, that tourists are no longer commonplace and they are finding making a living very challenging. Finding new markets outside the country is one way to give them a better chance of supporting their families. They use tree trimmings and the wood from olive trees too old to produce fruit for their carvings, protecting future olive crops. Each piece is cut, sanded, and varnished to preserve the beauty of the graining olive wood is known for. This wood grain is unique to every piece made and will change the color variation depending on how it falls within that carving.

  • Made by hand in the Bethlehem, Beit Sahour & Beit Jala regions of Palestine
  • Carved from sustainably harvested olive wood
  • Ornament measures approximately 2-1/2" on hanging thread
