History of fur
Fur is one of nature's most alluring gifts, treasured for its beauty and intrinsic ability to provide warmth. A fur coat has always represented the ultimate luxury and the greatest object of desire. Evoking a myriad of emotions, with a luxurious appeal that transcends time. A focal point in fashion, fur is also one of the most tactile materials, surprising designers and consumers alike with its versatility.
Greek Fur is considered the best of its kind and the city of Kastoria, where it is mainly produced, has been the world’s center of fur production for many decades. In Kastoria, fur isn’t produced massively like in China, however one can find there the finest crafted fur garments.
Fur first appeared in Kastoria between the 10th and 14th century AD, when Constantinople emperors and other lords wore it as a public display of high status. Fur trade started many centuries later, when fashion dazzled high societies in all of Europes major cities.
Moving into the 20th century, fur went through unprecedented popularity and KASTORIAN fur started being exported to all over the world. It was soon recognized as the highest quality kind of fur and became the trade mark of Kastoria. During the 80’s, several fur production small businesses started operating in the city. Throughout the years Kastorian fur crafters passed their art from generation to generation. In our times mass fur manufacturing has moved to China, but the world’s finest craft fur garments are still produced in Kastoria.
Family tradition in fur production and co-operation with Italian and Greek designers give Abel Furs the ability to produce clothing of superior warmth and durability, in the best price-value relation.
