I was trying to find a duvet cover that wasn't sateen. (Yeah, good luck with that.) The information on this one didn't say that it was, so I took a chance. I like it anyway. It appeared to be made well. I got the ivory. Had to cover it immediately with a sheet because as soon as my cat jumped on it, her claws started picking at the fabric. So, I never get to see it. I guess that's life with the four-leggeds. I bought this mostly because of the price. I'll probably make my next one. I can't for the life of me figure out why most of these covers are so expensive. It's just two sheets sewn together with buttons. This one came with shams. I haven't used them.
