Kastel Denmark by Charlotte Jorst is inspired by the strength of fortress “kastels” in her native country, Denmark. Channeling contemporary Danish Design, she was also able to capture important functional elements including protection from the sun while staying cool and active, along with durability and quality. Simplicity paired with fashionable flare reflects her Danish heritage and love for timeless design.
Charlotte’s creative direction for Kastel Denmark originated from her talent in the equestrian ring as an accomplished rider. Through that industry, she saw a void in the marketplace for easily available and affordable sun-protective outerwear.
Having been affected both personally and through friends by the harmful results of sun exposure, Charlotte decided that her new venture would focus on the active individual with emphasis on ultra violet protection in many of the designs and product categories as well as through the use of other protective fabrics against the elements such as soft Merino Wool.
