Nicola Sway

This family-owned business began in 1945 with one man carving olive wood handicrafts, one of the leaders in the olivewood craft. Since then, it has spanned three generations of this family with six members currently working together in the original workshop. The two brothers Nicola and Rimon each work on unique designs in separate workshops but they complete each other’s work. The main products of this workshop include olive wood crosses, kitchenware items and camels. Like many workshops in the area, the Sway family has been heavily affected by the political situation in the area. Before the restrictions on movement were put into place, this family would go to Jerusalem to sell their products. Now, however, the family is not permitted to go to Jerusalem for many reasons, so they can only sell their products to local souvenir shops. This is where BFTA steps in to help market and sell their products globally. Beit Jala
