Boyfriend pillows are available only in Japan, and are shaped like a pair of arms. The person curls up with it and it is said to be both comfortable and comforting because it is like a boyfriend who can never leave you. Bed pillows will eventually become soiled, through the accumulation of sweat and potentially saliva and of human skin cells. Dust mites live in pillows, feeding on the skin cells that gather and thus 10% of the weight of a two year old pillow may be dust mites, dust mite feces and dead mites.
Another important quality indicator is the sturdiness of the trim. Cheap throw pillows have a tendency to unravel at the seams. Though double edge stitching is not common, it is a great sign of a quality throw pillow. For aesthetic reasons many well crafted pillows will only have a single stitch so don't rule these out completely. Just make sure that the trim is not already unraveling and that you can't pull it apart with a quick on the spot quality check before you buy. When shopping online this is a hard thing to detect but many websites now offer a zoom feature which will let you get close enough to see the trim quality. On the upside, shopping on major sites usually has the advantage of showing user reviews, make sure you read these to see what other customers experiences have been with the pillow you have in mind.
This is an optional consideration and doesn't apply to many modern pillow varieties. If your decor is based on a traditional Victorian theme then you will undoubtedly opt for aubusson style pillows that are full of tassels and flared edges with trim to spare. Fringes definitely give the pillows more impact and for this reason you will want to use slim small edges on smaller pillows and limit the amount of large throws with big bold tassels and trim.
