Despite some other reviews that I had read prior to purchasing this comforter, I do NOT think the craftsmanship of this product is top notch. The stitching looks sparse if you ask me and the overall fullness or thickness of the comforter leaves much to be desired. I kept the product, but also have another coverlet type thing over it for added warmth during the cold Wisconsin nights. The reason I kept it is because of the design/look of the comforter. I wasn't able to find anything else with the elegant simplicity of the birds on the branches. I love the way it looks but quite honestly worry about the way it will hold up with the menagerie of pets in my house. You might ask yourself, why on Earth would you get a comforter like this if you have pets that sleep on your bed? Maybe I'm just foolish, but I love the way it looks. Wear and tear from kitty claws and doggy paws is a risk I'm willing to take.
