Fold Up Nativity Creche with Snap Closure


This fold-up nativity is made from wheat straw. Artisans cut and flatten wheat straw and scrape it with a knife to make it even. For larger pieces, wheat straw strips are fixed to paper to form a sheet from which designs are cut. For more detailed designs, wheat straw is cut into thin strips which are pieced together in layers. Artisans apply heat in varying degrees to bring about the range of tones from light tan to dark brown or black. Finally, they cover the cardboard base with cloth to complete the item. Craftspeople use simple tools: a flat board, a pot of glue, a sharp blade and a pair of scissors.
