I was very young when I first came into contact with soap-making. My beloved grandmother Irene allowed me to follow her to our basement. She set the cauldron on fire and began slowly yet methodically hand-making soap bars. At first I didn't understand much, but with time I was initiated into the secrets of soap-making. She used to say that this formula is easy to learn and it has been passed along for generations.
In the old days there were no shower gels, cream soap or shampoos with which to enjoy one's bath and stay clean and fresh. Soap was the only item used for personal cleanliness. Don't imagine anything special: a white bar of soap, without any particular scent. Grandma however was a very progressive woman for her time and kept coming up with ideas how to perfume her soaps. She did not live to see her ideas put into practice, but after she passed away I decided to continue the traditional art of soap-making, incorporating certain scents in order to make the soaps modern.
At our birthplace, Archontiki, Rethymno we have set up a small enterprise where we manufacture soap. We use olives as raw material and follows grandma's traditional formula. Our love for our native land and its tradition encourages us to try to preserve the style and character of our soap products over time, transmitting our knowledge to the next generations.
