This comforter set turned out to be even nicer than I had expected. It's a faux suede finish and very nice quality. I really liked the little accent pillows that came with it, they make all the difference in the presentation. There are no sheets, not a complaint, I just forgot there were none in the 8 pieces. The set comes in a standard tightly packed zipper bag and you should give it a few days for the creases to drop out of the set after putting it on the bed or they could be ironed. Over all, nice set I would purchase again.
