About Christos

In May of 2005, fur and leather designer Christos Taltsidis from Kastoria Greece, opened Christos Furs & Leathers located in Westchester Illinois and has been expanding ever since.

Before opening his own fur and leather salon, Christos worked as a fur and leather designer at various acclaimed salons over the years. Evans, Maples, Dion Furs, the list goes on!

Christos was also the lead fur designer for all of Nordstrom’s Midwest locations, which is what inspired him to open up his own design house. He is one of the last practicing true furriers in America, his original designs, intricate craftsmanship, and overall passion is what makes Christos Furs so special.
