This is a beautiful item, clearly handmade from unique Guatemalan textiles. We were happily surprised at the functionality of the quilt, though--it is very heavy and soft, quite warm at night. The price was extremely reasonable for a bedspread of this quality. We also got very good service from Overstock--they sent the wrong color first, but we got through to someone on the Chat line and they replaced it with the right one in a matter of days and sent us a free shipping label to return the wrong one. All in all, a very satisfactory shopping experience!
This quilt is so beautiful and adds a lot of character and energy to the room. We love it, but it is very heavy so my husband does not like it as much as I do, though we both appreciate its beauty. The colors do fade over time after several washings, and we get a lot of sunlight in our room as we are in sunny Utah, and those have caused the color to fade over the past 3 years, but it is still gorgeous. A lot of fun to own!
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes, orginally, but it fades to more of a yellow/brown over time
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great, but 3 years later it is starting to wear a bit (to be expected)- we also have dogs and kids that love to jump on and off our bed!
- How accurate was the sizing? It fits a king well, but you do need a bedskirt
This quilt exceeded my expectations. There is a perfectly balanced array of colors and patterns that create a stunning piece. The quality is excellent. I would highly recommend this to anyone searching for the colors that these quilts are offered in. Interior designers take note!
This is not so much a quilt as it is a heavy, lined bedspread. Considering its substantial weight, it provides surprisingly little warmth, probably because it has no loft or batting, and the lining is dense enough to prevent much air entrapment. That said, it is a beautiful piece of workmanship, very well crafted using gorgeous fabrics. I would recommend it more for warm-weather use, as I am about to fold mine up and replace it with a comforter until spring.

This quilt is light weight and comfortable for a summer quilt. I'm not sure that it will be heavy enough enough for winter. The top layer fabric is high quality, but seems darker than I envisoned based on the picture. I'm very happy with this product.
I love my quilt. I've had it for about a year. I have washed it in my washing machine once and am getting ready to do so again. It held it's color did not fade a bit. The only reservation I have is that I noticed one seam has pulled away and I will fix that. But, that is normal wear and tear especially since it has been used daily as a cover and a blanket for the past year. It is a beautiful piece of art on our bed. I just hope the women of Guatamela are fully compensated for their fabulous work.
This quilt is absolutely beautiful. After one washing the colors really begin to show through. It's thin but super warm and comfy. Has a vinigary smell from the dye, but that also goes away with the washing. Buy the pillows if you can, they really set this off. I got the rust colored one and we use it in our master bedroom, we're always getting compliments. Beautiful and well priced.
The quilt is very beautiful. It's not actually quilted and the back-side is black fabric but it doesn't matter to me - it looks rich and comfy on my bed. It's perfect for a cool Seattle summer night (mid-50s), but I'm going to need another blanket or comforter with it in the winter.
This quilt is more beautiful in person, than on screen. King size fits our California king mattress perfectly! The only complaint I have is that there is no stuffing on the inside. Red side consist of fabric pieces sewn together (with a metallic thread here & there, accentuating textured look), other side is plain black cotton, with no quilting. The benefit to this is that it makes a pretty top spread year round.
I had read all the other reviews, so I knew that this was not going to be a "fat" quilt. We bought it not knowing if we would use it as a bedspread or a wall hanging. We decided to hang it on the wall because it is so lovely. Ours did not come with hanging tabs as some reviews mentioned. Excellent quality and fast shipping.
As others have pointed out, this is not a quilt but a coverlet of sorts. It is not tied or stitched down. The rough-weave fabrics composing the quilt started coming apart upon use of the quilt. It is really not meant to be washed or used much. A coverlet in a guest bedroom, a wall hanging, or a folded accent would be best. The quilt (I bought the red one) has a strong vinegar scent (which I rather liked); any washing or exposure to sun will start to strip color.
This is not a bedspread, but a nice cover for a solid-color bedspread. It is beautifully made -- and bright, make no mistake. I picked the yellow-based one that sits atop a plain green bedspread, and I couldn't be happier. Like someone said in an earlier post, I hope the craftspeople who make these are fairly paid (and I assume they are), for their work is of high quality!
