Story Behind the Art: Chucam is a small farming village located in the Department of El Quiche, Guatemala. 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. 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.

Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
I purchased for my daughter. She thought (as I did) that there was red in the quilt. They red is bright cranberry- I assume this is what they are calling rose. I always thought rose was a pink. My daughter likes the quilt and is keeping it. There is a fair amount of black in the quilt that doesn't show online.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? No, the red on screen is cranberry.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. I am pleased with quality.
I love this! But its not liek the colors displayed. I think the color will vary based on the patches they have available. Fortunately I love the color purple so I decided to keep it. If you are looking for a very white/pastel based quilt set, I don't think this was. But its still gorgeous.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Not really..
Please tell us about the quality of the product. High quality, substantial feel, craftmanship is apparent.
How accurate was the sizing? Good. Plenty big for my queen.
