Joseph Giacaman, his sister Angela and his sons Elias and Peter are one of the oldest Christian families in Bethlehem; who own and operate the Holy Land Arts Museum souvenir shop and its Olive Wood and Mother of Pearl factory.


My father Elias I. Giacaman (1910 – 1992) opened his own Mother of Pearl workshop in the year 1925, few years later it expanded to include the Olive Wood factory, till now our family is still running both of the factories and the souvenir shop despite of all the political difficulties we have been facing for such a long time, we are holding on to our Christian and Palestinian identity in the Holy Land.


Our Shop and factory are located in the Manger Square in Bethlehem, few meters away from the Nativity church.
