- General info
- Connecticut Furs of New Britain was established by the Rubenstein brothers Joe and Sam who were later joined by brother Ben. The Rubensteins developed into the most successful furrier and the most talked about fur salon in the state. Their loyal clientele followed and supported them for many years.
In 1984, Connecticut Furs was sold to George Brothers from New York. Harry Sitilides worked as the designer of George Brothers and was asked to move with the firm to New Britain. When Harry came to New Britain he was fascinated with the facility. He had never seen a factory equipped like that, perfect for manufacturing and producing fur garments, totally different than the tightly squeezed space he was used to back in New York.
The business continued to thrive and, as it was agreed upon, Harry became a partner. In December of 1995, Leo Sitilides joined the company as a partner and as a result, Leo closed his factory in New York and the two brothers (Harry and Leo) took over the whole operation.
