These beautifully old-fashioned pillow covers are quilted on the face and have three ribbon ties on the back; they are also made quite well for years of use. They are so pretty and comfy soft after washing; they were a bit stiff right out of package. Be sure to use your favorite fabric softener for added softness. This is now my favorite "curl-up-with-a-good-book" pillow! =) Thank you for another wonderfully beautiful deal Overstock!!
