Rated 3 out of 5Â by MinionofGozer Lovely print, quality lacking
My hubby surprised me with these shams as part of a quilt set for our recently redecorated master bedroom and I was initially excited about receiving this set because the pattern is so gorgeous and has a retro feel, however, in comparison to past quilt sets, the quality is just lacking. These shams were covered in loose thread, pulled stitches, stitching errors in the form of giant thread knots in the main body of the sham, not to mention they had quite a bit of lint on them straight out of the package. If not for a bedding sale and b-day discount, we'd reconsider keeping these.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by lanthropologue Standard shams come as a pair!!
I like these shams! They are so lovely with the matching quilt and euro shams. The fabric is soft, though reminiscent of the pre-made quilt fabric once sold in cheaper fabric stores in the construction. The fill in the quilting fabric is pretty thick and stiff, but I'm guessing that this compresses over time. I consider this to be a kitschy element of the style, however, because the print is so lovely that it does not look cheap. One thing the product description does not mention is that these shams come as a pair. (The euro shams, however, do not.) I ordered two of these, and ended up with four total! Thank goodness for a reasonable return policy!
