I was hesitant to purchase this duvet, since I did not recognize the brand of "Euro-check". Also, when it arrived, there was no indication of any type of brand. However, after an initial wash, the duvet was very soft and the cloth felt extremely durable. I don't find it to be too heavy, and the fabric smooths out nicely. I purchased the white color and it is indeed bright white, making my white sheets appear slightly yellow. I would definitely recommend to others.
