Sponsored Links What's This?

    Add some colorful world flavor to your decor with this Guatemalan embroidered tapestry.

    Created by Mayan cooperatives in the western highlands of Guatemala, this handcrafted embroidered tapestry weaves vivid rust red-colored 100-percent cotton into a variety of indigenous designs and patterns.

    We strongly recommend that you hand wash your tapestry in cold water and hang it to dry, or have it professionally dry cleaned.

    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.

  • Pretty nice

    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.

  • not so hot

    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.

    This looked much better than the picture. However it does not look hand made. It has a very finished look.

  • Guatemalan Hanging Quilt

    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.

  • Perfect for my Dining Room

    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!

  • pretty, but mine didn't match the rust quilt

    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
    • How accurate was the sizing? fine
    • Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
