Most quality pillows are two separate pieces, the cover and the actual pillow. A removable cover is quite handy when it comes time to clean the pillow, and can be reused after years of wear have flattened the original interior pillow. Also note that good fill materials should flatten easily but not permanently. You can test this by giving a little punch to the center of the pillow, if the pillow does not budge then it is made of cheap synthetics that will stay flat forever once they do get a little wear. If the pillow takes a moment but eventually gets it's swagger back this is a good indicator that the pillow can be easily fluffed and will spring back to life over years of usage. Fill materials usually range from synthetic polyester to full on goose down and everything in-between. Down pillows are excellent, but if you are purchasing one be sure to inspect the insulation quality of the feathers. Feather tips sticking out of the pillow are a good indicator of expensive materials coupled with shady craftsmanship (not to mention getting poked).

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.

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.
