Since we share our bed with our 3 cats (their choice, not ours!) - I did not want to spend a lot on expensive bedding - and I wanted something machine-washable. This fits the bill - and is a great price for sheets and comforter. Sheets and pillow shams washed nicely (have not washed comforter yet). Sheets are thin, but usable - but that is what you get for such a low price for the set. I bought the king size for our queen bed and the comforter fits nicely. The queen would have been too small for my liking. I like that it is reversible also and it is a pretty pattern. I purchased some art prints which also have brown/blue leaf pattern and the art looks great above the bed! I'm happy with the purchase for the price I paid!
