Emneord Top lotSwakara

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 930.

- 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 Moscow.

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.
