My recommendation to others would be to not purchase linens online unless a) you've seen and evaluated the pieces in a store, or b) the label is one that you recognize and you've been pleased with the quality of that company's pieces. The comforter fabric has a shiny look to it, similar to what one would get if he or she sprayed cloth with some sort of finishing spray. Overall it doesn't have a premium quality look or feel. I like the palm design, and the green color pictured is true to the actual fabric color. If I could, I would return the set. But the comforter has been on our bed for a couple of weeks. Lesson learned.
