Did not think this set was so soft. I like that but how in the world did they get those pillow shams to stand up straight for the picture? No way in the condition mine came in. I expected a crisper look and a more sturdy backing on these items. Color is nice. Not a bright red or a rust. Just a nice, medium, muted red. No time to send back and search for another duvet cover. I will see how it goes as the price was good.
