Southwest comforter is beautiful to look at, as others have said. It does snag easily, so much caution! The smell others talk about is like dry cleaning fluid. It has dissipated! My only regret is that it doesn't come with additional decorative pillows, or pillow covers, as shown on the picture. I was able to find some fabric that will complement the comforter, so I will cover my own throw pillows. Just wish I didn't have to! The colors really go well with the mauve/green southwest colors I have on my walls.
