by BeyondDisappointed I'm a huge fan of linen bedding but these shams are no good. All colors of garment dyed linen have WHITE stitching on the borders and corners. It looks so cheap. To make matters worse this is intentionally hidden online as the stitching looks dyed to match the bedding. As much as I love this deep blue color they must be returned. I guess it's worth spending more at Restoration Hardware.

We are addicted to linen bedding in this house, and have used Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn in the past. We saw the super-sale for some of this bedding and purchased a couple sets of shams for $20-30 a pair and a twin duvet to use as raw material for a nap bedding set for my preschooler. I am very impressed so far, these are much nicer than the Restoration Hardware linen (I was a textile buyer for 6 years, so I can actually say that with some chops!)
A note on the stitching- one side is matched to fabric color (at least for the dark blue and the coral colors) and the other side is a contrasting color. This is obviously a style choice- it makes them stand out from other linen bedding out there. Be forewarned if that's not your thing (we like it, it's a little extra pop of color.)
I wouldn't personally pay full price for this (bedding is easy enough to make) but $19.99 for a linen duvet is awesome- I should have bought two!
