I received this duvet set yesterday and cannot wait to put it on the my two kids twin beds in their room. I purchased this as an alternative to the similar one on Pottery Barn kids that was $80 just for the duvet...this one is much more affordable at $** for the duvet and sham set. The stripe is supposed to be navy blue but looks more black....i will have to see what it looks like once on their beds. I was disappointed that this set is not authentic hotel collection...its made it india, but claims to be italian....has a cheap sticker on the outside of the plastic casing that says Hotel Collection. But the plus side is that the fabric is very soft and cozy. The kids will love sleeping in their new beds...overall a good value for the money!
