A sumptuous 500-thread-count sham is made even more luxurious with the addition of shadow work in a floral ribbon motif. An especially subtle and skillful type of embroidery, shadow work is done on the underside of the fabric so that only the barest outline of the pattern appears on the surface. The look is both delicate and complicated but quite sturdy. Insert not included. George Henry's handmade linens have graced the tables of heads of state, royalty, and celebrity tastemakers. The finest cottons and linens from Italy and Belgium and the sheerest organdies from Switzerland are sent on to Portugal's Madeira Islands, where artisans transform these fabrics, stitch by stitch, into treasured, one-of-a-kind heirlooms.
