Sponsored Links What's This?

    This handcrafted, high-quality patchwork quilt and pillow cover set includes 1 patchwork quilt and 3 embroidered pillow covers.

    Both the quilt and pillow covers combine a vibrant red/rust color with a variety of indigenous designs and patterns. The pillow covers are designed to complement the quilt rather than match it exactly. We strongly recommend that you hand wash your quilt and pillow covers 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.

  • Patchwork Quilt Set

    This fair trade item is absolutely gorgeous - reds, rusts, browns, and a hint of black. Very rich, warm colors, not gaudy. Well made. The pillows are stunningly beautiful and are a wonderful accent on the bed. Buy oversized because the quilt is fairly short. The quilt is decorative, not intended for warmth.

  • I hated it when I opened it

    When I opened the package I was shocked at just how RED the quilt was. When I put it on the bed I started to panic and I hated it! Then I put my orange throw pillows on and it changed the entire thing! It pulled the orange colors out and now I'm loving it! If I only had the throws it came with I think I would have been returning it. I'm glad I didn't have to do that. I love it, my husband loves it and even the kids like it. The quality is great and the work is beautiful! I will be sure to dry clean it as suggested to maintain the rich colors. Overall, a GREAT product!

  • absolutely gorgeous coverlet

    I hesitated before ordering this item because I was originally looking for something cheaper, but I was attracted by the handcrafted/fair trade aspect. Also, my daughter, who studied Spanish in Guatemala several years ago, had visited the co-op outside of Xela that makes these and was excited to see them available online. I am overjoyed with my purchase. The coverlet (it isn't really a "quilt" but a top with a black cotton backing) combines patches which mostly feature stripes of various earth tones, but also some needlepoint-y flowers and zigzag designs on some of the patches. The colors are lustrous and some patches have sparkly threads running through them, though I don't know whether this will last through repeated launderings. The three pillow covers each have different, but coordinating, floral embroidery on the front and a zipper opening in the back to insert an 18" x 18" pillow form. While orange predominates in the quilt, the main color in the pillows is dark red. Some other reviewers have complained about a musty smell, but mine arrived clean and odorless.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes, but the real thing is more beautiful than the picture conveys.
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. The coverlet top is carefully and accurately pieced, and the pillows beautifully tailored.
    • How accurate was the sizing? The dimensions were as listed. The "king size" just covers my queen size Tempur-pedic mattress.
    • Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
  • Quilt

    I had read other people's reviews before I decided to purchase this, and they were all correct. The quilt and pillows are just gorgeous and the quality is just great. I used mine to cover a sofa and love how the pillows are not matchy matchy, but coordinate beautifully.

  • Georgous!

    I lived and traveled in Mexico and Central America in the 60's and was in the area where these textiles are produced. To be able to purchase something so lovely, while helping to preserve traditional crafts, and the people who have produced them for hundreds of years and whose culture is being obliterated by our "Brave New World" is a win/win opportunity.

  • I love this product! The color is just right !

    Perfect color for my use. Accent shams are different but really compliment each other . I love that the quilt is lined. The price is perfect and I would purchase another if the color scheme was different than rustic. Thank you for excellent workmanship!

  • Beautiful and made to last.

    Purchased this quilt set for our new cal-king bed. The size is perfect, I was worried it wouldn't quite reach the baseboard but it looks like it was custom made for our temperpedic. The stitching is tight and the thread is of high quality. I noticed this immediately because I really use my stuff. Nothing sits pretty in my house. The embroidery on the accent pillow shams is beautiful, the photos don't do them justice. I purchased two sets, the rust colored set and the blue set. They are both beautiful and I give them a 5 star rating. Its nice to know the artisans who made these quilts directly benefit from my purchase, that feels good.

  • Beautiful Quilt Set!

    The Quilt came with 2 pillow cases, all hand made. Beautiful colors, great quality and price. Very well made. I especially like that through the free trade agreement, my payment gets utilized by the villagers who made this.

Are these fabrics prewashed or preshrunk? If not, are these Guatemalan fabrics color fast? Does the quilt have to be laundered before first use? Is it necessary to use Retayne or vinegar in the first wash? Will the color stain other bedding? ptaps on Jun 20, 2012

Answer This Question

They are not pre-shrunk or pre-washed. There is very little bleeding in Guatemalan quilts these days, but we still suggest hand washing or washing on delicate to prevent pulls in the embroidery. overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 21, 2012
