Swakara expert purchased the top lot
15 September 2010Auction
A manufacturer of karakul garments since 1975 it
certainly was an expert who Sunday outbid all competitors in the
Kopenhagen Fur auction room. Konstantinos Bourtsos got the top lot
- a bundle of white swakara Purple pelts - at a price of DKK
- I bid because it was the best bundle available,
Mr. Bourtsos says and explains that the top quality pelts will
be used in the manufacturing of some yet unspecified garment that
will be exhibitioned as Bourtsos Konstantinos' main attraction on
coming fur fairs at Milan, Paris, Hong Kong, Madrid, Kastoria and
It's the sixth time Mr. Bourtsos buys the top lot at Kopenhagen Fur and he only manufactures karakul and swakara.
- I worked with it for many years so it has become my speciality, Mr. Bourtsos says and adds that he only has one wish for the pelts that he has specialised in:
- I wish there were more swakara colours, he says.
