I bought this for my niece and when it came in, I was so happy that it was so vivid in color! I have not washed it yet so I can't report on whether it is going to fade or not! If it fades, I will report back!
As much as this pillowcase costs, you'd think the company would invest a bit more in softer fabric and smoother decals for the total design. The idea, and the design itself, are incredibly cute and well-received.
