|A number of areas in Malta have been in continuous occupation since the introduction of tobacco in the late 16th century. Of those Mdina and Zejtun have been associated with the production of pipi tal-Qasba, albeit on a modest scale. In the harbour area the one pipe factory, the former British Empire Pipe Company, used briar and olive wood for their products. They say clay pipes were probably imported.
