Story Behind the Art:

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.

  • Guatemalen quilt
    Verified Purchase
    Option: Red - King

    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!

  • Love it, but...
    Verified Purchase
    Option: Red - King

    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!

    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!

  • beautiful, not very warm

    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 is a lovely quilt. We purchased the red one and the colors were slightly more orange than expected, but only slightly. Being from New England our bedding needs change with the seasons. It’s perfect in spring or summer with a light blanket underneath and in winter with a puffy comforter. It makes our bed look fantastic all the time. Also, we have a young cat who loves getting under the covers, the quit has stood up well to his pawing. Finally, it washes well on cold.. I would buy it again.

  • Nice coverlet
    Verified Purchase
    Option: Yellow - Queen

    I really like the patchwork of beautiful handmade Guatemalan material. What I don't care for is that after the piecework was done, the entire coverlet was dyed an overall color. I would have preferred that dyeing hadn't happened. The other drawback to this coverlet is that it is not quilted and therefore it's rather loose and hard to handle. It really should have been either quilted or tied to give it a better structure.
