THE MAKERS

The family and neighbors of Issa Mosleh comprise the artisans of Gloria Investment, Ltd. Located in Beit Sahour, a village on the east side of Bethlehem, Gloria Investment, Ltd produces beautifully carved olive wood items. In an area with few employment opportunities, the sale of olive wood creations provides much-needed income to talented artisans. Issa Mosleh also hopes to guarantee the continuity of this valuable traditional handicraft through these difficult times.Jiries Mosleh, Issa Mosleh’s father, began working with mother-of-pearl to create exquisite handicrafts in 1964. He began to carve olive wood ornaments, pendants and brooches in 1970, and today the olive wood handicraft tradition continues under his son’s supervision. The workshop moved from rented space to its own property in 1975. Ten Thousand Villages has purchased products from Gloria Investment, Ltd since 1978.
