It sure didnt look like it in the pictures but one of the other reviewers was correct in that the filled in flowers are not satin but some real thin cheap vinyl. I hope it is not going to break up the first time I wash it. I liked the pattern and color just fine if you dont mind that this is basically two very cheap sheets sewn together with some embroidery on it for 60$ 180 thread count is not even a good sheet by todays standards. Highly overcharged for quality of product. I failed to shop locally and could have gotten a comforter set with matching decorator pillows for a lot less than I paid for this set. My biggest complaint yet is that I ordered the King size and it barely covers to the edge of each side of the bed. It is long enough but not nearly wide enough and so a king comforter inside bunches up at the edges and it will not cover the sides of your mattress down to the skirt.
I love the print and it goes fantastic in my room but it really gets wrinkled - even if you put it straight on your bed from the dryer. I have ironed it to make it more presentable but it is not an easy task with a king size duvet! I just deal with it because it was pretty reasonable in price.
Despite I can't make my bed look as fancy as the one in the picture (I don't have all those pillows) the duvet is beautiful and just what I was looking for which was hard to find. I wanted a cover that wasn't a complete solid but I didn't like the other options of either boring stripes or wild patterns. The embroidery is nicely done both on the duvet and shams.
This just came and it is of unbelievably low quality. The color is the ugliest possible tan/ taupe, the flowers look like shiny vinyl pasted onto the comforter, and the cotton it's made from is of very thin, very poor quality. The stitching is erratic. The overall impression it gives is utterly tacky. I've ordered duvet covers from overstock before at even greater discounts and been pleased-they are of much better quality fabric. This one is a solid loser and is going back. Looks nothing like the photo.
I do love the duvet, my only issue is that the material used gets wrinkled very easily, even straight out of the dryer. Maybe after more washes it will become more soft, but new it is stiff and wrinkly. The design is beautiful, simple and elegant. Goes well with paper lamps and slight asian decor. The colors are subtle and easy to blend.
