I was looking for pillowcases for my guest room, and didn't want to spend an arm and a leg. I hunted high and low before finding these. These were inexpensive, yet looked as luxurious and attractive. I was not disappointed. The fabric was very smooth and soft as I had hoped.They look great with the quilt on the bed. They washed up nicely -- not wrinkled – Each our guest said that the pillowcases looked sophisticated.
