Is this indeed a cover, with two shams?
The look is Indian / boho, but will go with many different decors. My little dogs, (and cats), are always jumping on the bed and this cover doesn't show the dirt. The cover seems to be equal in quality to some Pottery Barn covers I have bought without the price. Time will tell after I have washed it a few times....

I adore this set. My husband thinks it's amusing but I sort of swoon every time I get near it. I just love Indian block prints and this one is very subtle. The fabric is heavy and construction is good.Read More
Despite the size issue, I came back on line to buy another one, and was bummed that they sold out!Read More
I had my eye on this set for almost a month before I bought it because I was worried that the quality wouldn't be up to par. Given my past experiences with Overstock's bedding, I shouldn't have worried. I did look for duvet sets at quite a few places before I ordered this one, but to get what I wanted, the pricing was ridiculous. I'm glad I ordered this one. The fabric is a decent weight cotton, not too heavy nor too thin. I expected a somewhat coarser weave due to the block printing, and, although not smooth like high thread count bedding, the weave is comfortable. I washed the set immediately upon arrival, and it didn't fade at all. I even dried it outside, and it came in slightly wrinkled, but not bad. Overall, a great value on a gender-neutral print that can go in any type room!Read More
Amazed at the quality of this duvet cover. Exactly what I was looking for.Read More
