Story Behind the Art

Chucam is a small farming village located in the Department (County) of El Quiche, Guatemala. The community is located about three miles away from the town of Chichicastenango, but the road to town is not paved and access to the village becomes difficult during the rainy season. The families of the community are very poor, but the women know the ancestral art of weaving and use it as supplemental income to provide a better life for their children. In 2001, eight Chucam families banded together to form a weaving cooperative to make beautiful patchwork quilts and other embroidered textiles. Their incomes have doubled if not tripled, and dozens of additional Chucam families have become involved. More importantly, the men don't have to leave for months at a time looking for work in the sugar cane fields and many more of the villagers' children are able to stay in school.

  • Unique pillows

    Very nice quality, beautiful pillow covers. I ordered two more once I saw how nice they were. Worth the price for handmade work.

  • Just what I needed

    I used this to cover two pillows that were in good condition but were a lighter color and had gotten some stains on them. These added a much better color that goes with my African/East Indian/multi cultural decor and it really brought life to one of my chairs and a settee.
