These pillows have quality construction. They arrived separate from the down inserts. At first, I thought the inserts were going to be too flat, but they fluffed up after they were out of their shipping envelope. I purchased the chocolate brown and medium sand/taupe zebra stripes. The backs of the pillows were also chocolate and were made from a fabric similiar to a short velvet which was better that the canvas I was expecting. Great Pillows....I would definitely purchase more!
