Emmanuel A. Kavroulakis is the eldest child of the world famous woodcarving master technician, Argirios Kavroulakis; at an early age and under his father’s guidance, he studied the art of woodcarving and design.
In 1962, he went to Italy to study the internal architecture and design of Eastern Churches. In 1965, he went on to Germany and specialized in Baroque art woodcarving and sculpture of Eastern Churches. Once he returned to Athens, Greece, he founded his own company whose only goal is to serve the needs of Orthodox churches and monasteries worldwide.
In 1980, American Ambelos Church Supplies was founded in Chicago, Illinois. Centrally located, it allows us to deliver our products faster and easier to our customers in the USA and Canada.
Continuing the family tradition is Emmanuel’s son, Argirios Kavroulakis; he has joined the company and hopes that along with his father, serve the needs of Orthodox churches and monasteries worldwide.
