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.

  • Not vibrant like picture
    Verified Purchase

    Muddy over-dyed monotone. Not like picture. This is one in a string of things I have gotten that had something about it not right. Two rugs, both with impossible to remove glue stains and this piece that shows lots of oranges and other colors, but in person those colors appear muted to a dull brick red as the entire thing seems to be died in a monochrome. Not pleased.

    Beautiful quilt, however, the underneath side is a solid black silky material, which I didn't care for.

    I purchased the blue w/pastels quilt after reading the reviews. I like the quilt because the style and colors are unusual. I own several traditional-looking quilts. I wanted something a bit different. I was not disappointed. The colors are vibrant. The patterns are unique. The product description calls the accent colors pastel. I'd call them more jewel-toned. I don't care what they are called. They are beautiful. I am so pleased with my purchase, I ordered another in red/earth tones. I have a way of testing my decorating decisions. I leave the room. After a few minutes, I return to see if what I did looks as good as I thought it did. Every time I enter my bedroom I smile. I made a very good choice. I read in another review that the colors faded after washing. I washed my quilt before using it. In cold water, the colors do not appear to have faded. I did encounter a surprise when I pulled my quilt from the dryer. Because the backing is secured only at the edges, the quilt and backing twisted into each other while tumbling. Material in the center of my quilt ball was still wet. After carefully untangling--I was concerned that the stitching would give--back to the dryer. No to worry--the stitching is strong. However, I have found a few spots where the material unraveled, creating a few thread balls between the layers of the quilted top and the backing. I won't be machine washing my quilt again. I strongly recommend dry cleaning to avoid this issue. The laundering drawback does not diminish my rating at all. A covering this special is worth special handling.

  • Not a Quilt
    Verified Purchase

    It was accurate as pictured, but was not a quilt. There was no batting and the front was not stitched to the back, it was sewn only around the edges. It was beautiful colors, but I could not see washing it.

    I've been to Guatemala. I love their 100% cotton textiles. I know how much time goes into their handwork and I love it that things are still being handmade some places in the world. And I want to support those artisans. That said... Why in the world did someone supply them with stinking polyester to use as backing on these quilts??? It ruins the whole effect. It's slick and nasty. It's not practical for use as a blanket and it's too big to hang on a wall. MAYBE it could be a curtain, but you'd still be able to see the shiny black border. I couldn't wait to get this blanket, and now it's in a closet. It's a shame. Someday I'll replace the ugly backing with cotton material.

  • Never have I been happier with an on-line purchase

    I have owned this bedspread for at least ten years. Every time I walk into my bedroom I fall in love with it all over again. It is not really a quilt but when I bought it I believe it was advertised as a bedspread which is what I was looking for. All you see these days are comforters and/or quilts. It has a beautifully quilted top layer and a plain black underlining. Also when I first bought it some people said in reviews that it shrunk when they washed it so I have always had it dry-cleaned. And each time I get it back from the dry cleaners I love it even more. I have a double bed with extra visco foam topper so I got a queen sized and that works perfectly. Occasionally I think I'm in a rut and will buy a comforter for my bed but always end up changing back to this beautifully rust colored bedspread. It so perfectly accents my hardwood mission style bedroom set. I have been thinking for a while that I needed to check if these spreads were still available so I could have a replacement when mine finally wore out. And they are. And I think I'll try out the blue set also.

  • Guatemalan Patchwork Quilt
    Verified Purchase

    As lovely as this Quatemalan quilt is, the length makes it impossible to use on most regularly measured bed. The width is long enough to hang beautifully at the sides of the bed. However the length is too short to cover the pillows and the end of the mattress. If one has a solid bed frame, this quilt MIGHT WORK. I may not have ordered this quilt had the measurements been given, but maybe that was the reason the mreasurements were NOT provided.

Questions & Answers

  • Q:

    "Why did you choose this product?"

    • A:

      because of the global/ethnic design, the way it was produced by indigenous peoples AND the fact that it is almost 100% cotton. Also the price was very reasonable and the reviews were by and large positive.

    • A:

      because it looks unique

    • A:

      Looking for something original and warm.

    • A:

      I love the hand-made look - the colors are vibrant in the picture and I can combine them with other neutrals if too "strong" to create my own unique look

    • A:

      The king quilt was much less expensive than the queen (I hope that wasn't a typo...) I love the fabric, was in Guate for a couple of weeks and loved the people, kids, art and all things G. Plus we have German Shedders (not a typo :) and this will work well with fur instead of what we have.

  • Q:

    "how thick are the quilts?"

    • A:

      Two layers, but no fill inside. Warmer than a normal blanket, but not as warm as a comforter.
