Gift Pack of 6 Olive Wood Christmas Tree Ornaments Decorations (HJW)
6 beautiful olive wood Christmas tree ornaments/decorations in a presentation pack made by HJW (Holy Jordan Water) the leading exporter of olive wood products.
The ornaments come in various sizes and shapes and range in length from about 4 - 7 cm / 1.5 to 2.5 inches.
These are all hand made in Bethlehem, hand carved from the wood of the olive tree, by the Holyland's finest craftsmen. Please note that each ornament is unique as each one is carved with love and may differ very slightly from that pictured. These will last and last as they are made out of top quality olive wood.
These were very popular and I sold out of these decorations early last year so do not wait to order. I can get more in stock if you need more than shown in inventory.
Information about olive wood:
Olive trees are indigenous to the Holy Land and are treasured because the oil from their fruit has been used for religious rites since biblical times. The olive wood used in these beautiful products is of the highest quality and is distinctive for its dark lines. It comes only from olive wood trees that are grown in the area between Shechem and Hebron that are not irrigated. The olive tree is a protected species in Israel and cannot be cut down. Once every two years the olive trees are pruned so that they bear fruit and it is from these prunings that these handcrafted pieces are made. The prunings are stored for almost 5 years, before they are used by the craftsmen for these exquisite pieces.
Please note - this is not the ACTUAL picture of the product you will receive. Olive wood varies in texture, grain and colour depending on how old the branches were before they were trimmed - this adds to its beauty - just like no two snowflakes are the same, neither are two pieces of olive wood. Some pieces will have more lines and markings, some might have fewer. Each one is carved with love and therefore may vary slightly from that pictured.
