FUR INNOVATION THROUGH TIME
A 700-year course of success
Around the 13 th c.: it is estimated that organized leather and fur processing began in Kastoria.
From the 16 th c. onwards: there was an increase in demand for fur products, as they became a symbol of social status instead of merely a means of protection against the cold. There were imports of raw materials from abroad and, finally, commercial supply of ready fur products to the whole of Europe .
In the 18 th c.: now comprising a basic garment of elegance, fur embraced the technology of the era, with processing machinery and imports of remnant patches for stitching to Kastoria.
After 1950: there was rapid development thanks to the unique technique and enthusiasm of the furriers of Kastoria, which became the most important centre for fur processing internationally.
Today : The furring sector respects the ecosystem and fulfills all necessary specifications, with respect to international rules regarding ecosystem handling. Raw materials come from special breeding facilities, complying with specific operation laws and favorable living conditions for the animals.
Every fur item is an exquisite work of quality and technique.
Based on traditional trade secrets and processing, combined with modern developments that complement tradition; this crowns our work with international prestige.
