The reason I purchased these shams was for the color combination of the black and white. It works perfect with my other bedding...EXCEPT when I put the pillows in them and positioned them on the bed the outside of the sham falls down so all you see is the white. It's basically a white pillow sham at that point. I was very disappointed and ended up returning them. :(
Love the look and feeling of these shams. Disappointed with the border, since the fabric is so soft the border falls down and doesn't show as well as it should. Should have more interfacing or something so that the border will stand up not fall.
