Product Description

Bring the true look of the Middle East to your holiday decor with this remarkable Holy Family nativity set. Made from fabric, each piece is carefully sewn, then cross stitched by hand, with fun finishing touches added at the end. Mary and Joseph have wire stabilization to enable them to sit.  

In 2011, the conflict in Syrian began, reaching a loss of life exceeding 400,000 in the first 3 years alone. There are currently over 13 million displaced Syrians due to the conflict, all of whom are struggling on multiple levels. Regardless of where they currently live, they have the artistry of their ancestors in their corner. The cross stitch of the Syrians is legendary. Our ladies stitch the patterns freehand, making every piece a unique work of art. This work gives the artisans a sense of control amidst the chaos and a much needed income that will help them past this period of instability.

  • Hand made by Syrian Women
  • Stuffed fabric with internal wire for structure
  • Set includes Mary, Joseph, and Jesus with 4 piece manger (simple assembly required)
  • Tallest figure is 10-1/4" long from head to toe, 7" tall seated.
