Wondering what pillow shams are?
Pillow shams are nothing but decorative pillowcases that are designed to cover standard pillows. However, they are not intended to be slept on. In simple words, they are creative alternatives to pillow covers that add depth and decorative elements to your bed.
In the 1700s, specially designed pillowcases were made to created decorative pillows with removable covers. Later, these “false front” pillow covers came to be known as pillow shams.
Pillow shams come in traditional pillow sizes;
Standard Sham measures 26” x 20”
King Sham measures 36” x 20”
Euro Sham measures 26” x 26”
Typically, pillow shams are sold in pairs made out of fabric from a matching duvet cover. Buy pillow shams online from Pushplinen at affordable prices.
How is a pillowcase different from a pillow sham?
A pillowcase protects your pillow and helps keep it clean as you sleep in it. On the other hand, a pillow sham helps you hide your pillow behind a more decorative façade. Pillow shams are also open in the middle of the back, sometimes with a hidden closure and other times with an overlapping fabric.
