Awesome pillow!

This pillow is exactly what I was looking for. The colors are bright and match the blue's in the room where the pillow sits perfectly. I love all my Citizenry pillows, they are very high quality.

Beautiful pillow

We received this pillow yesterday and are very happy with it. It is a great size -- thick enough to actually... be a pillow (unlike those from some stores that are so thin they're clearly just meant for decoration). The fine blue stripes on the lower half are a little less bright than they appear in the photos, but not too far off. The fabric is soft, the white stitching is neat and seems sturdy, and the design is more interesting than a plain pillow, but not too distracting in a room where we already have a lot of other visual interest going on. Very pleased!

Kurai Sashiko Pillow

The pillow was so uninteresting visually that i sent it back to you. It looked better on your site than it did in reality.
