This comforter is pretty and I did want black and white. I am more casual than this is. The white is a very lightweight satin type swishy fabric. The black is like felt, fuzzy. The thing slips around on the bed. I was hoping for a heavier cover that stays in place easily. We can't sleep with this on the bed as it is noisy. It is pretty wrinkled, do not know yet if I can get them out. Will try steaming from the back side I suppose. It does look like the photo.
