    ITEM#: 932418

    Snuggle up under this rust patchwork quilt set made in Guatemala. It features a cotton and polyester construction for the ultimate in softness. The indigenous designs and patterns add a unique, artistic touch to your home. This brown quilt set is easy to clean - just wash it by hand with cold water, and hang it to dry.

    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.

    What is Worldstock?

    Due to the hand-dyeing process and difference of monitor colors, some quilt and pillow cover colors may vary slightly. Worldstock.com tries to accurately represent all textile colors in copy. Please refer to the text above for a description of colors in the pillow covers and quilt.

      Beautiful colors and quality work, but very thin (not designed for warmth) and slippery (slides off bed).

      Verified Purchase

      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
      Verified Purchase

      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
      Verified Purchase

      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.

      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.

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "I read a review that stated that even though the quilt is dry (after washing), it still bleeds onto clothes. We will be putting this over a white cotton/sateen duvet and don't want the color to transfer to the duvet, let alone our clothes. Is this something we should be aware of before purchasing?"

      • A:

        Hello valtron7, we do apologize, we are not aware what caused this item to bleed when it was dry. We don't have additional details. However, this item has not had this reoccurring issue. It would probably be good to sample it on white towels or old bed sheets to confirm this does not happen with the duvet, just as a precaution. Thank you for shopping with us.

      • A:

        We needed a light-weight coverlet for our bed in Ecuador. This looked like just the thing - the colors seemed right, and the style was what we were looking for. Hope is turns out to be just what we want.

      • A:

        I was looking for a bed spread that could fit in a Harry Potterish kind of color scheme, old reddish, brown, yellows...Something we could have found in the Weasley house.

    • Q:

      "Several reviews have stated that the quilts are smaller than expected. Is the size given in the Product Details the actual size of the quilt?"

      • A:

        Yes, the dimensions shown in the Product Details section are accurate.

    • Q:

      "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?"

      • A:

        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.
