Super cute but color not as expected


I love the pillow except I thought it would be off-white as the picture shows but it is actually a darker wheat color. I'll still use it because it's unique & cool but it doesn't blend as well with my nursery.

Very nice fabric and design !!


Our daughter works in the lab at IUPUI in Indianapolis IN looking at DNA all day, so she loved these pillows

Great gift for daughter but didn't expect it to be so small.


This is a great gift for a science enthusiast or for girl power. I didn't pay attention to the dimensions, however. It is a small accent pillow.

Perfect choice for med student!


Bought both pillows for grandson in med school. He loved then for his couch and couldn't wait to show them to friends. Initially I thought they were small but he thought them just right for small sofa in small apartment. Great conversation pieces and will be used!



Unique & Fun gift


Love this creative pillow. I happen to work in genetics and thought this was fun way to show a little more of myself in my home. Since the material is burlap like it is not at all soft and I would never lay my head on it, but it is a conversation starter and a unique piece. I think it would make a fun baby gift too!

Great Design Quality, A Bit Expensive


I feel as if the pillow was too expensive. I was expecting 2. Even though the product description said "Sold Individually" the picture shown was a bit misleading. Other than that, the pillow made a fantastic gift for my Biology-loving friend. It was well made and looks great on his bed.
