I needed two black shams, which are not easy to find. I was very happy to find this one, which nicely matches our quilted coverlet. At first, I was reluctant to spend this much, not being able to adequately discern the quality of the fabric and the workmanship. The quality is quite good, although not the ultimate. Worth the price, in my opinion.
I was looking for pillow shams for a bed with a quilt accented in black. These shams are perfect! They pull the entire look together. The shams are a sturdy, yet soft material and the quilting is strong and nicely done. They look great.
