While I bought 2 sets in the fall, I was looking for extra pillow cases to exchange in between. The ones that arrived did not have the satin stripe at the end as shown. Instead in had a flap that was inserted so that the pillow is tucked in. Not necessarily a bad thing, but not as attractive as with the satin stripe. More importantly, the fabric on these pillow cases feels rough by comparison. I washed them before use, and have washed them 2-3 times since and they still feel rough--much more so than the originals that came with the sets. Disappointed.
