Have you ever looked at a crow in sunlight? Under the right light, their dark feathers appear to shimmer. The background of this pattern is reminiscent of that. Sky blue diagonal lines cut through powder blue squares on top of a deep navy background.
A word of caution if you're purchasing just the pillow cover: make sure that your insert measures between 19 in and 20 in. Use a measuring tape to confirm.
I sew each pillow cover with the following details:
Each cover is made from a soft, smooth fabric that feels like a high quality velvet or faux suede. The printer I work with calls it "Suede Vision." Made with an eye towards durability, it doesn't stretch and comes with a rubber-like backing. Don't be afraid to rest your head on it: it's also washable.
Plumper than most, these inserts are designed to hold their shape over time. For pillow aficionados out there, yes, this means they can "hold a chop." They also contain no down for any allergy sufferers in your household.
