I read previous reviews before I went thru w/ the purchase. So I knew that the quality wasn't going to be absolutely perfect. And it hasn't been. It looks great, but "loose" threads (or pulls) are already occurring -- and that's w/ treating the duvet cover gingerly. So that's not a good sign. Also, one of the pillows that comes w/ the ensemble is really flimsy/cheap-looking, though the other two are great. Again, overall, not a bad deal for the price.
