Illuminate is Again Offering Fair Trade Patchwork Quilts Handmade by our Guatemalan Artisan Coopera

Fair Trade Quilts & Crafts and Illuminate have been working with the same cooperative of Guatemalan artisans since 1999. Their patchwork quilts and other textiles are absolutely breathtaking and not available anywhere else in the United States.

And, over the years, they have received quite a bit of attention from the media including...

"Our Patchwork Quilts were featured in "Lucky Magazine". They said, "Their quilts are simply beautiful." Our Quilts & Pillow Covers were also featured in "Bust", "Yoga Journal", "Domino", "People's Style Watch!" and "Latina" magazines, and our Quilts & Ceramics were used to create Guatemalan themed sets on episodes of "Law & Order, Criminal Intent" and "Saving Grace". And our Guatemalan Pillow Covers were featured in "Time Out New York's Holiday Gift Guide."

We have dozens of this cooperative's pillow covers, bags and throws in stock, and starting today, we will again offer all their quilts in our store. The artisans will make them on a "custom order" basis and you would receive yours within 30-45 days. There are many colors and designs and you can see them all here. Each of the quilts comes as a set along with two 20 x 30 matching pillow covers.

Please email us at if you have any questions about the quilts or ordering process.
