About us

Starlight's founder Pavlos Flikas was born in the northern part of Greece, in a small town called Dafnero, Kozani. His first introduction to fur was at age 12, where he learned the craft from the local furriers. Pavlos’s natural talent for the craft was what led him to pursue it as a career.

He started working with different kinds of furs (i.e. mink, beaver, fox, etc.) and quickly learned the trade and all the luxury and warmth fur offers. He moved to Canada when he was 16 years old, where he mastered his technique and continued learning. Pavlos founded Starlight Furs in 1982 with his wife Tina. They started off with their first location by the De Maisonneuve fur district, but around 10 years ago moved down to their new location on avenue du Parc, by Chabanel Garment district (Cité de la Mode). Together they’ve been making fur garments and accessories and selling them across Canada, the US, and Europe. Also included in their services, are custom client orders, remodeling of furs, storage, and fur cleaning. On top of being a manufacture, Starlight Furs also sells their products in various salons and boutiques across the world. Their years of experience and knowledge has allowed Pavlos and Tina to take part in trade shows around the US, particularly in New York and Las Vegas. 

He is an active member of the Fur Council of Canada, and was a member of the Salon Métiers d’Art du Québec. The fur used in all products comes from the North American Fur Association (NAFA), which is a government controlled fur distributor. All fur items from Starlight Furs are made in Canada with utmost precision, pride and passion... with the signature of Pavlos Flikas.
