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. 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 handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

Good quality; however, just really didn't care for it once received. Returned.Read More
Very detailled hand work, beautiful!!Read More
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.Read More
Very nice weight and is perfect for summer! BeatifulRead More
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.Read More
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!Read More
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!Read More
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!Read More
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.Read More
I bought this for my daughter. The colors are vibrant and the quality good. The fabic is soft. Had a slight smell on opeining that dissapated quickly. She absolutely loved it. I would be purchase again.Read More
