If you look at the picture for this item it looks thicker than it turns out to be. When you lay this out on your bed, it looks like a heavy sheet with an attached backing. It is definitely not what I call a comforter and certainly the picture is deceptive. The pillows are nice and the colors are very close to that shown in the picture. I just expected something closer to that shown in the picture. By definition "A duvet, pronounced "due-vay" (it means "down" in old French) is the same thing as a down comforter. In it's simplest form, it is a cloth bag filled with down and feathers, This item has little to no filling and, again, looks like a heavy sheet with an attached backing. Do not expect to receive what is shown in the picture!
