I orginally was disappointed when I received this because the whole comforter doesn't have the damask print. Its only a little over half then its black the rest of it. I also didn't initially like material as it was cheap and scratchy. Also, one of the pillows had a stain on it. However, after I put the whole thing on the bed, it looked a little better with the pillows and everything that gave it more of the damask print. The material is crappy, but i think its nice if you have a dog because hair really doesn't stick to it. The white is really bright right now and if my dog tracks dirt on it, I am able to wipe it off with damp cloth. I am not sure how it will hold up after a wash. Overall, for the price it was better than the comforter I bought from walmart with more things included. I really like the two throw pillow. It also looks good with red accents and curtains like I did!
