Having four dogs (2 which sleep with us) I was looking for a duvet cover that didn't show the paw prints so much. This color/pattern is perfect and it seems to be quite durable. I've washed it several times without a problem. I like to hang my bedding outside on the clothesline and this huge cover dries very fast. I'm not normally fond of microfiber (polyester) and didn't realize that's what it was at the time I ordered it but I'm pleasantly surprised.
