The material is cheap polyester... but the biggest problem is random black stitching on the otherwise silver/gray top. The thread color matches the black inside , but stands out like a sore thumb on the top surface. These would normally sell as blems or factory seconds.
I am very happy with this set for the price. I have it in my guest room. Guests say comforter is a good weight. It fits my queen size bed nicely whereas others I have bought were on the small size. I had to trim off some threads from the top therefor only the four stars but overall I am very happy with my purchase.
I was leery about ordering this, somewhat concerned about the mixed reviews, but it is gorgeous! Heavy weight comforter. Great colors: the color bands are both light silver and charcoal (along with a deep true black). There are no background hues of green or blue underlying the gray and silver tones, they are true colors. The entire set is much richer in color than is pictured here. The three pillow set is lovely also, not cheap or small. A great purchase, don't hesitate to get it! I am very pleased.
My comforter set is classy looking and the perfect colors. It is black cotton underneath so it doesn't slip off of the bed. The riches top is pretty and unique. It is light weight so it isn't too warm for sleeping. I'm using the decorative pillows in the living room because I don't need them on the bed. I'm very happy with this purchase.
