Beledi dokuması Türkiye'nin en eski pamuklu dokumalarından biridir. Temelleri 16. yüzyıla kadar dayanmaktadır. Tarihi kayıtlarda bu dokuma türüne Tire ve Bursa’da rastlanmaktadır. Bugün sadece Tire'de devam etmektedir.
Eldoku, Tire gezisinde bu harika dokumaları 5. kuşak olarak devam eden ve yeniden canlandırmaya çalışan genç Nurefşan Yaykal'ı ziyaret etti ve beledi dokumanın hikayesini ondan dinledi:

Soap, soap, soap....
Did you know, that in the small village of Bademler soap is still produced by using the method of the very acient times and sold on the weekly market?
They use the ashes of an oak tree and pour water on top.
This brine is mixed with olive oil and the result is the soap on the picture.
