I am not a picky person but I was very disappointed in this comforter. It has a smell of Jute, like macreme fibers. It really smells. I used it on my bed for 2 weeks, and every time I walked into the bedroom, all I smelled was jute. It was so strong that I put it in a large plastic container. I plan on trying to sell it at a garage sale this summer. A waste of money. On the pillow, there were brass tacks, that are apparently glued into place. A few of those have already fallen off......I love the pattern and design of this comforter. Its a shame I can't use it.
