My name is Tibor Szőke, I am a cooper, a traditional craftsman, living in Haraly (Kovászna county). I learned the cooperage craft from my father, as he did from his father; the skills passed on from one generation to the next.

Our world is changing constantly, but I keep the traditional craft of the cooper alive here in the village of Haraly, and by drawing your attention to the wares made by myself, hope that you will find among them something that you like, that corresponds to your needs and that maybe you will accept my open invitation to visit my workshop here in Haraly.
