I should have listened to the previous reviewers. This is one of those "you get what you pay for" situations. It is cheap looking and feeling. I much prefer cotton. I purchased the brick color...which is really a basic red. I suppose this would be good in a second bedroom, dorm or just to protect a comforter but for looks not so much. The king size has seams so it is not just two pieces of fabric sewn together it's 6 pieces.
