Today only a few soap makers still actively make soap in Nablus, Palestine with the most prominent being the Nablus Soap Company. Olive soap from Nablus is made by hand using a small number of ingredients, with a mixture of olive oil and salt as the basis. This is a delicate process. The Tbeleh family has used this recipe for centuries and today Mojtaba Tbeleh is the master soap maker.
The mixture is cooked and then dried. After that, the blocks are carved by the Tubeli, soap makers, and piled into characteristic geometric towers. These soap blocks are stamped with the Nablus name. The soap must then be left to dry for another few months before it is ready to use.
