Our olive wood komboloi are made of authentic olive wood from the Holy Land of Bethlehem & Jerusalem. This wood is from trees, which have been bearing fruit since the time of Romans. This wood comes from the trunks of old and unproductive trees. No trees were damaged in the process of harvesting this olive wood.
High quality olive wood Komboloi beads are handmade in the Holy Land from sustainably harvested, authentic Bethlehem olivewood. The olive wood is very hard, resistant and pretty. The beautiful contrasting blond and brown of the curled grain, coupled with its durability makes olive wood particularly ideal for komboloi beads.
