The handicraft industry in the Bethlehem area is in danger of disappearing. This is a direct result of three things: constant political unrest, the resulting decline in tourism, and more generalized economic hardship resulting from the occupation.

Presently, because of the low number of pilgrims visiting the region and the very low production of handicrafts, factory owners are no longer able to secure sufficient income to support their families

The Holy Land Handicraft Cooperative Society is adopting a strategy to open the international market as a means to counter the devastating decline in the local handicraft industry. During the first period of its existence, the Cooperative Society focused its efforts on the establishment and expansion of its own shop as a vital instrument to support members and small workshop owners. Bulk purchasing of raw materials enabled the Cooperative to purchase at lower prices and then pass this dividend on to its members.
