All creches are hand made from reclaimed wood recovered from vintage wooden trunks. The only thing I have done to the patina is a light stain on the edges that were cut by the saw. All the stains, nails, nail holes, gouges and age of the wood are all natural from years of regular use. This makes all the creches one of a kind. They may have similar shapes, but each one is hand designed, cut and a little sanded. Sometimes I have re-used the original nails but most of the time I use glue, small screws and brads.
A small strand of fairy lights is included with each creche. The nativity figurines are optional.
