10.5 cm Handmade Olive Wood Holding Cross

Price: £4.00
Product Details
This is a single olive wood holding cross, handmade by skilled Palestinian Christian craftsmen in the Bethlehem suburb of Beit Sahour. It was sourced through a local WFTO fair trade wholesaler, and I set my prices to just cover my overall costs, so that as much as possible gets back to the people who made it. At the present time, with no tourists in the Holy Land, the need to support these artisans is greater than ever.

It is designed, as you can see, to fit comfortably in an adult hand, with rounded edges and an offset crossbeam. While each item is individual, and the grain in the wood will vary from one cross to another, each one is about 10.5cm long, 6cm wide and 1cm in thickness (3.5"x2.5"x0.5") . I only wish I could let you hold it yourself, as you would understand why so many people have found them a great comfort and aid to prayer!

For safety, all items have been hygienically packed in their envelope for two days before posting, so there is no danger of virus transmission. If you have a loved one who is self-isolating, why not send them this symbol of Easter hope and reassurance?

You can also buy a box of 10 at a reduced price and postage - see separate listing
