I love this duvet cover set. Its a bit heavier material which is good because of the number of animals that sleep on our bed, and the colours are nice and bright. I have yet to wash it, but will be sure to do so in cold water after reading other reviews. I wouldn't consider this reversable because the buttons are in a really odd place on the striped side - about a foot up from the bottom - which I am disappointed about, but I can live with it. What looks to be black is actually brown but I paired this with black curtains, black bedskirt and painted my dressers black and it looks great!
