De Castro is the signature and last name of Virginia’s mother, an artist herself. Virginia has been inspired by her mother’s work over the last 10 years and is the reason why she decided to name the brand in her honor.
The brand started in 2017 in Jaipur with the support of Sanjay and Samir Kasliwal (owners of The Gem Palace) and is today Parampara’s private label.
De Castro is a fusion of Virginia’s origins in Colombia and elements and fabrics from India. Most of them 100% handloom, full of color and life, with a western taste and feminine shapes distinctive from the Latin woman.
She focused on creating relaxed silhouette using the most ancestral textiles from India, like the Khadi and Ikat. All this handloom made by artisans with the purest fibers of cotton and silk, breathable fabrics, “easy-to-travel-and-live-in silhouettes”.
The Brand is known for their delicate embroidery’s, impeccable finishes and beautiful design details as carve buttons, hand painted Buckets, outfits stitch completely by hand, and mixing crafts from both cultures.
