Albe Furs & Outerwear was founded in 1984 by Leon Skolnik, a fourth-generation furrier who learned his trade as a young man in Russia. After working for top designers in New York City, Leon opened his own design studio and retail boutique in Westport, CT over 30 years ago.


Albe Furs is an independent designer and retailer of luxury furs and fine outerwear. Albe designs and manufactures customized, hand sewn fur garments that meet the highest expectations of modern quality and style in the fur industry. Albe offers a range of garments and impeccable services at a higher quality and lower price than any Manhattan department store. In addition to custom-tailored one of a kind items, Albe is a design studio and retail boutique offering brand name furs as well as their Signature Collection. Albe remains a small, family-owned business with a desire to cater to the individual needs of their clients. Albe Furs' two exclusive locations in Westport and Greenwich, Connecticut offer a range of services including tailoring, repairs, cleaning, storage, and full remodels.
