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. 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.

    The actual colors of this "coverlet" are very bright - neon pink, neon orange. The interior "dark" square are actually blue not black. If using as a quilt, you may think twice - very thin. If bright, neon colors are your thing, you may like this item but it wasn't for me.

    I bought this quilt to have something in the living room to cuddle up in. I LOVE the colors and patterns of it. The patchwork is quality but the fabric that they are sewn to is a little disappointing. Overall though, I am really happy with this purchase.
