The duvet itself is soft and the design is beautiful. The material seem to be well made too. The actual color of the duvet is closer to shown in the second picture. I did not keep the duvet because it's about 2 inches too narrow for my king blanket. I don't usually look at measurement, just the size description (king, queen, twin etc). If you look closely, the king measurement is about 2 inches narrower than most of the king blanket. Maybe the king size is perfect for a queen blanket... before you buy, make sure to compare the measurement.
