I'm very pleased with this duvet cover and the quality of the fabric. The hand is very soft and it also has a nice drape. Because of the thread count is around 300 threads per square inch, it isn't as heavy as a higher density thread count duvet which suits me just fine. I've tried the very high end fabrics but they added so much weight to my comforter that I found I didn't like them. While I like the pattern very much, the overall layout across on the fabric could be better (it looks to me like 2 wide stripes of the pattern on the queen size rather than one overall design). I also wish I had found this product sooner since I would have preferred the mocha color best, but even the red is fairly neutral and looks surprisingly nice against a pale turquoise wall color. Another reviewer said that that the matching sheet set didn't hold up after many washings. That may be true, but since the duvet cover will probably receive far fewer washings compared to a sheet set, I still think it's a very fine product for the price.
I needed a duvet set for a guest bedroom. The decor is neutral . I wanted a set that was not too frilly, floral or boring geometric. This fit the bill. Being 2- toned allows for colorful accents. Material is nice- I washed it right away and it came out of the dryer beautifully.
It looks exactly as pictured. I didn't know what to expect with 310tc but since it's sateen its VERY nice! Also, I was really skeptical about buying another duvet; with others I've had, the comforter always bunches up or slips out of place but we've been using this one for 2 weeks and it hasn't budged! And this is without any safety pins or ties. Very happy!!
I would absolutely recommend this to a friend. It is beautiful, soft to the touch, and feels like 500 thread count. It's creamy background and black design is stunning. I can't wait to crawl into bed. Of course, it was a more than a bargain at the price. I am so glad I took the chance and ordered two from the beginning. . . and had it brought to me half-way round the world.
