    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 3miles away from the town of Chichicastenango, but the road to townis not paved and access to the village becomes difficult during therainy season. The families of the community are very poor, but thewomen know the ancestral art of weaving and use it as asupplemental income to provide a better life for their children. In2001, eight Chucam families banded together to form a weavingcooperative to make beautiful patchwork quilts and otherembroidered textiles. Their incomes have doubled if not tripled,and dozens of additional Chucam families have become involved. Moreimportantly, the men don't have to leave for months at a timelooking for work in the sugar cane fields and many more of thevillage?s children are able to stay in school.

    • Nice, but

      It's beautiful, but the dye stains you and your washing machine; ahs it hasn't held up. Should really be decorative only. I would love to offer a new one, as individual woven squares are coming apart on mine, but I doubt another one would last. Sad, cause we really love the looks of it.

      Beautiful. Just gorgeous. The quilt is high quality and exceeded my expectations. Plus, helping a small business owner in third world country made this purchase extra special.

    • Guatemalan quilt

      This is a beautifully crafted quilt which I bought for my mother as a Christmas present one year. She loved it so much she always kept it within view. It is quite heavy and functionally is very warm, which she appreciated so much as her health started to fail. I am now the owner and wish I could personally thank the quilters for providing the opportunity to have gifted this treasured quilt!

      Well made, heavy materials some of which are hand woven. Patches are 21/2x41/2 inches, Would buy a King Size for a queen sized bed. Colors on the rose option are beautiful..Well worth the money!

    • A mixed bag... just like a quilt!

      First the good. I bought the rust colored one a few years back and loved it so much I bought it again. The blue color is very nice too. Has an ethnic elegance that is above the cheap touristy schlock. The quilts are really covers as they are not thick, but do look great on the bed. Remember, layers is what keeps you warm! The bad: Like some quilts, durability is an issue. Wash it carefully. As it is made of several different woven fabric patterns, the more ornate ones are fragile. Second the color does run quite a bit. I bought the rust one again since it faded so much over the years. The fade was a nice look, as it brought out the native pattterns in the fabric before the overall dye job. That said, expect it to look quite different with washings. Overall: For the money you can't complain and it does look great. Buy the king size even if you have a queen bed, as it seems to be undersize and does shrink a bit with washing.

    • Bleeds

      This quilt is a beautiful dark blue BUT, think very carefully how you will use it because the fabric dye is not permanent. It might be O.K. on a chest as part of your decor if you are willing to just bat out dust or dry clean. But I put this on our bed and found that moisture will make the blue bleed. After going to bed with wet hair I have woken up to a blue neck, and my dog licking her paw on the bed has made blue marks through to the sheets. So I was really forewarned when it needed cleaning. Not being in a habit of paying dry cleaning, and the tag says "Dry clean or hand wash separately" I tried the hand wash. Now I have many blue items. Since the blue was everywhere, getting it dry was the biggest problem. Even my clothesline would have been blue!

    • Well, It looks nice but......

      Well, I was very excited to get this product. The picture does not do it justice. The various colors are very vivid, and so varied. Just beautiful! BUT, I was sooo disapointed when the stitching started to come apart after just 2 weeks! Just sitting on the bed unraveled the stitching. My quilt had loops on one end(?) Maybe it's just mean't to be a wall hanging. I don't know. It's a shame because it's really beautiful. Also BTW, There is no batting in it (like an actual quilt). It's more of a coverlet.

    • Not QUITE what I expected.

      First I want to say Love this quilt. Had saved a long time to purchase it. That said, instead of lots of blue swatches of material they took the other quilt and dyed it whole in a blue die. It still looks fantastic for my bed. Speaking of which, I expected a Quilted quilt with cotton batting. What you have instead is paramount to a duvet cover of sewn together swatches which had tabs on it for hanging on a wall or use as a curtain. The materials are organic cotton, it still is weighty and warm, but it is not "Quilted" and has not batting.

      This is a beautiful piece, and the colors are rich, but it has to go on sideways to reach the frame, and cover the mattress. I will remedy this with a piece of fabric around the edge, as suggested by another buyer. My other issue is the color- not so rich a blue overall- more of a turquoise - but it works in the room, and I love the handmade feel. I like that it is supporting the artisans, and will purchase more products from the world store.

    Questions & Answers

    • What are the dimensions of the king-size quilt?

    • Please see about making this quilt in rose color option in twin size. Because of non-color fastness of materials, would only want to use this as a wall hanging and I can do with a twin size for that, and that would also make this quilt affordable to me. I would pay $100 for a twin size but that is the most I could go. Anyone who has any idea of what is beautiful in a quilt design recognizes the outstanding beauty of this particular quilt. Absolutely outstanding design.
