Los Castillo - Don Antonio Castillo began his apprenticeship at the age of 16 in William Spratling’s Las Delicias workshop in early 1930’s. He and his brothers, Jorge, Miguel, and Justo were trained in all aspects of the silver business. By 1939, they formed their own company, Los Castillo. The company continues on today under the watchful eye of Emilia Castillo, Don Antonio’s daughter, a gifted artisan in her own right. Under her direction, “Los Castillo must not be too commercial. We never repeat; we are always improving, getting better with the details. We are upgrading the quality of craftsmanship. We only want great artisans who love what they do. Silver is too precious a metal – it has to be used with love.”
