Description

Hand made in Beit Sahour by Gloria Enterprise.  Gloria coordinates the sales of olive wood and mother of pearl for 60 carvers working in small workshops. All of the Bethlehem area is isolated by the Separation Wall and nearly surrounded by settlements.  Gloria’s shop showcases work of artisans and encourages cooperation, maintaining the highest quality. Many artisans are in serious debt; although they receive what is considered locally a fair price for their work, like other Palestinian artisans, they have no health insurance or pensions.  The olive wood products are carved from wood that must be dried for at least a year before using.  Traditionally the wood comes from the pruning the trees, ensuring environmental sustainability.  Hadeel commissions new designs and is one of the few customers who pay for orders right away, enabling this group’s work to continue.  We also support “Keep Hope Alive”, an olive tree planting project coordinated in the area by the YMCA.
