Olive Wood The olive tree is a “protected” tree in Israel and therefore it is allowed to cut only its branches. Once the branches are cut – they are left to go under the process of natural drying for a period of 5-7 years. Only then it is possible to work with so that its natural shades and grains are not damaged, because the olive tree is alive.
"His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall be as the olive tree" Hosea xiv, 7
The olive tree has always symbolized the glory, splendor and the very roots of both Judaism and Christianity.
This unique product was created by the Halamit factory's best designers, and artistically hand crafted.
The product is made of olive wood, from a tree that has been growing in the Holy Land for hundreds of years. The wood has undergone a natural, five year drying process, which ensures its eternal stability.
The great age of the tree lends the wood its naturally artistic forms.
A close study of the wood's natural grain affords a glimpse of the rich history of the Holy Land from whence it sprang.
We are very proud of the product's elegant design and we are sure that you will derive great pleasure from it.
