The Story Behind The Product
Chucam is a small farming village located in the Department (County) of El Quiche, Guatemala. The community is located about 3 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 a 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 village?s children are able to stay in school.

The Tapestry was a little more brown than reddish, but it was just like the photo- not as heavy as I thought and actually kinda thin. I might have to add some weight to the bottom so that it hangs better. The loops at the top make it easy to hang.
i loved the concept of this tapestry to cover a repair spot on my wall. however, upon receipt, I noticed that the color scheme was terribly off: deep earthy rusts, reds, burgundies, and then dead in the center...PEACH. i hung the piece anyway, to see if the dimmer lighting in my bathroom would mask the peach but there was no mistaking it. I offered it to a friend of mine who loved it as she had more of a mixture of cool and warm tones in her home and she was very pleased. Bottom line: don't purchase if you are expecting warm earth-derived colors.
I FIRST HAVE TO SAY THAT WHEN I FIRST OPENED IT I WAS VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED IT WAS A TOTALLY DIFFERENT TAPESTRY THAN WHAT I SAW ONLINE MY FIRST IMPULSE WAS TO SEND IT RIGHT BACK AS I AM A VERY VERY PICKY PERSON AND I LIKE TO GET EXACTLY WHAT I WANT THE TAPESTRY I RECIEVED WAS THE ONE WITH THE OBLONG WREATH WITH THE SMALL FLOWERS AND LARGE LEAVES AS DESCRIBED IN ONE OF THE REVIEWS I HAD READ I WAS PREPARED TO DEAL WITH THE COLOR BEING A LITTLE OFF BUT NOT A TOTALLY DIFFERENT TAPESTRY WITH TOTALLY DIFFERENT COLORS I WISH IT WAS THE ONE I SAW ON LINE BECAUSE I REALLY LOVE ROSES AND THAT WAS THE ONLY REASON I ORDERED IT THIS ONE DOES NOT HAVE ROSES I HAVE DECIDED TO KEEP IT BECAUSE ALTHOUGH IT IS NOT THE ONE I WANTED IT IS AFTER ALL VERY VERY BEAUTIFUL AND THE WORKMANSHIP IS GORGEOUS THAT IS WHAT MY REVIEW WAS BASED ON THIS IS MY SECOND TIME ORDERING FROM OVERSTOCK I LOVED MY TABLES
A very nice piece. Good size for large wall. Hangs well.
Color is what we hoped for. Deep colors and quite uniform, mostly deep reds with brown/ orange tinge. Pattern is well presented. Looks great from a distance and up close.
Love this tapestry. Works perfectly in my dining room with the other artwork. I hung it on a dark brown cafe curtain rod. It is as described, colors are vibrant and I am very happy with my purchase. Price was very good too compared to similar type products you might find at World Market, Pier One, etc. Pleased!
This wall hanging is beautiful., great quality., colors are wonderful., can't wait to get it on the wall., will add so much of a quality look to the large hallway., that I have., Just plain beautiful, you will love it. Thanks, Overstock for another great product.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes, but, were so much prettier when you had it in hand
Please tell us about the quality of the product. prefect for wall hanging., just the correct weigh., not too thin., like others I have seen., wonderful
I bought this hanging to go with the lovely rust quilt and pillows offered by the same weaving village. My hanging is in the same style, but overdyed in a much darker brown, so it looks murky anywhere near the vibrant quilt. I considered washing it to see if I could get rid of some of the dye, but I ended up hanging it in a different room. It's quite attractive in its own way, and a steal for the price. Nailing it to the wall at the bottom as well as the top helps it hang flat.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? No, mine was much darker brown and the embroidery was entirely different
Please tell us about the quality of the product. It is well-made, with lots of embroidery
