The Holyland Handicraft Cooperative Society (HLHCS) is a guaranteed World Fair Trade Organisation member in the Palestinian town of Bethlehem. It supports 35 producer groups bringing work to 2000 individuals. Partnerships include local women’s enterprise groups and organisations that support people with disabilities.

HLHCS aims to preserve the handicraft traditions of the local area for the benefit of future generations of Palestinians.

Pendants, decorations and nativities are made from olive trees, a symbol of peace. Each item is carefully carved using prunings from the young trees and the sprouts from the trunks of the old unproductive trees, all locally sourced. The wood is collected without harming or destroying the ancient trees.
