Holy Family Nativity


Lightweight and easy to store, this unique nativity created from handmade paper and local dried flowers is a reminder that simple can be stunning. About 400 rural paper makers in the coastal town of Salay, Misamis Oriental, on the island of Mindanao, Philippines, work to create handmade paper from grasses, flowers and local tree-free products. Although the organization has paper down to a science, many factors affect colour or dyeing, including season, climate, process (air or steam drying), and even the strength of the wind.
