The Lorenzo Purple Comforter Set is a wise purchase. The comforter is made of heavy duty material. It is quite durable and true to the eggplant color. The skirt is extra long and did not rise on any of the sides of the bed. The pillow shams are stitched very will and do not rip or fall apart after several uses. At first I would not allow my dogs to get on the bed but chose to allow it since the comforter is so durable. So far, it has held up well. The dog's nails do not rip or tear the material at all. Spills come right up by spot cleaning. The pillows that come with the set are beautiful. I am glad I made the decision to order the Europillows to go with tthe shams that are included in the set. Their large size really add to the look. I am so impressed that I now show my bedroom to friends and family. I often get compliments on the comforter and have been told many times that our room looks like an upscale hotel room due to the bedding. Due to durability, the look, and the size of the comforter set, I feel it is very well worth the price.
