Aleppo's famous laurel oil soap is back in production after some of the city’s traditional soap-making workshops became operational again following the conflict.
Family and regional soap-makers have returned to the Old Souk of Aleppo, as seen in footage on Saturday.
Aleppo is world-famous for its soap, which is produced in a traditional style that has won many fans across the globe. It is a natural product made of fine olive oil, laurel oil, water and lye.
The soap-making industry, like many other economic activities, collapsed as a result of the war in Syria but is slowly making a comeback.
"After the war and after the crisis Syria experienced, we have returned to this factory," said Zaher Sabouni, a soap factory owner.
"We are proud to be the first factory that has resumed working in Aleppo after the war," he added.
The Sabouni family, whose name literally means ‘soap makers,’ is among those behind the comeback. They are back in the city and are once again breathing fresh life into their familial and regional tradition.
