Bourtsos: The tradition of swakarafur
The professional story of Bourtzos Konstantinos started 40 years ago in a small town in Greece, Siatista, where he started learning the art of fur at a very young age.
Learning the trade, he managed to create a highly respectable family business and then to expand it into a business which now empoys a big number of employees which consists of knowledgeable craftsmen as well as managerial staff.
Today Mr Bourtzos, together with his wife and his two sons Tasos and Christos, managed to create one of the best factories of readymade fur garments. Being exclusive partners with Swakara and thanks to their excellent craftsmanship, they can call themselves the best at their kind specializing in "Swakara" and "Karakul" or "Perzian".
Bourtzos takes part in hundreds of fur auctions and international fur fairs, proposing new collections of fur garments every year, quality certified skins. The business continues to expand with shops in Greece, Russia and recently in Dubai, with long term clients all over the world. The new company buildings in Kastoria have recently been completed, a total of 4200m2 where a new showroom, up to date workshops, as well as managerial services are accommodated.
