I don't know why others have complained about this duvet. I think it's just great. It's really soft, a lovely color (I got the taupe, which is more of a milk chocolate brown) and you seriously can't beat the price. I searched all over the web and this was the best price I found anywhere. I honestly was expecting something much rougher and lower quality for this price, so I was very pleasantly surprised to find that it was so soft and pretty. It has a very slight sheen to it, nothing too shiny. I would definitely buy this again.
