The product is BROWN. If I had known that, I would not have gotten it. When I got it, I had just moved across the country and was starting a brand new job. I was so stressed and didn't have anything else to sleep with so I kept it. The comforter is pretty noisy, it doesn't bother me that much but I could see it being annoying if you move a lot or share a bed with someone who does. I imagine that will go away after its been dry cleaned...and yes, it is dry clean only. I will say, if you do like BROWN it does look nice with all the pillows. I guess I'm just starting off with a different color theme than I originally planned.
