The duvet cover and accessories are very nice and I am happy with our purchase. The fabric is kinda like a rough silk, so, not at all cotton. I expected this, but this might not be clear to others. I ironed the duvet cover, a tedious task, but all of the "fold" wrinkles came out very easily. The duvet fit perfectly over a comforter. The two-tone of the pattern and the solid works very well in a small bedroom. That is, the room is not overtaken by a solid color or pattern on the entire bed. The duvet cover does not have ties inside to secure the comforter. I really don't understand why any company would make a duvet cover without a way to secure it to the comforter. I plan to sew some "ties" in. I found some tips online on how to do this.
