    Very well made attractive pillow. It is advertised as hand made and while high quality appears the same as a mass produced machine made pillow. It might be better to have them machine produced and reduce the price a bit.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Hand Embroidered City Pillows:

      These pillows are so much fun! They all have unique things about them and they're just fun to look at. My one complaint is that they're pretty pricey- especially for being made in India. I wish they were made in the US....

      Service and delivery comments:

      They took awhile to ship.

          Purchased as a closing gift for a client from Chicago buying a second home in Florida. They loved its unique nature and the familiarity of places from their hometown. Appears to be high quality and exactly as portrayed on the website.

          Delivery was faster than anticipated because it was around the holidays. Very happy with product and service from this company!

              Either as a sofa throw-pillow or as a wall/shelf display piece, it readily invites attention due to bright colors and imaginative design. Most of Manhattan places of interest are depicted - so for a visitor or resident of New York City, the pillow serves as memorabilia in a grand way.

              It's great in a chair or sofa, it's also comfortable. It's so nice I wouldn't use it for everyday pillows as you don't want to snag the embroidery.

              unique gift for my mom and step-dad who are total New Orleans groupies. They spend every year in NOLA between Christmas & New Years. My husband and I just got back from our 2nd trip to meet them there and we understand the appeal now of a fabulous city. This pillow is a great way to commemmorate their travels.
