These pillows suit our need very well. The basket weave portion is on top of the solid cover and is okay but I would have preferred that it be a stitched down basket weave...but that is personal preference. There are also several loose threads that have to be trimmed off of the basket weave portion. The most annoying part is the 3 tags that are sewn in one of the outside seams. It was very difficult to cut them off (with embroidery scissors) and the white remnant still shows unless that side is turned down.
