Hüseyin and Mustafa Şekercioğlu

Hüseyin and Mustafa were born in Kayakent, a village about one hundred miles from Eskişehir.  Hüseyin, the older brother, worked on the family farm until he was sixteen.  In 1976, he moved to Eskişehir.  Within a few months, he began learning the pipe making trade as a sander and stem finisher under Master Carver Necdet Altınay.

In 1979, younger brother Mustafa joined Hüseyin in Eskişehir at the age of fourteen. He was also employed as a pipe finisher at the Altınay shop.  In 1982, he began three years of lattice finish work.  Hüseyin and Mustafa eventually learned all the aspects of pipe making.

Following Mustafa's return from military service, both brothers joined resources and formed their own company in 1987.  Since 1996, the Şekercioğlu Brothers formed separate companies and employ other relatives in their businesses.

The Şekercioğlu Brothers produce most of the meerschaum shapes for SMS Pipes.  The superior quality and finish of their classic pipe shapes is recognized as one of the best available in the industry.
