Los Castillo



Image


In 1939, the young Castillo brothers Miguel, Coco, Antonio, Chato and their cousin, Salvador, began working as apprentices in the Taxco workshop of American-born artist William Spratling,  

who is widely acknowledged for his important influence on 20th century Mexican silver design.

Having learned from a master, the Castillo brothers established their own silversmith workshop in 1946 under the name Los Castillo. Inspired by the heritages of the Toltec, Aztec, and Maya peoples, their innovative, award-winning designs became known throughout Mexico and Latin America and were widely exhibited in the Americas and Europe.
