After perusing the many duvet cover sets available on Amazon I finally settled on this not too girly design. The gradation style works well in earthy/natural coloured rooms and it is done well. The fabric is folded onto itself and sewed into place so there is texture when you run your hand over it. The same goes for the pillow cases.
The duvet cover is fastened with spaced buttons not a zip or velcro but sadly the pillow cases are left open. With the material being 100% polyester there is that crinkly scrunchy feeling and noise that you do not get with Egyptian cotton. That being said it is still a great looking and great functioning set that will work for all seasons as the material is thin enough for Summer and Winter. I used a 13.5 tog and I was fine despite it being Winter now.
This is a great product that I can proudly recommend but loses 1 point out of five for the many loose/long threads on the rippled parts and for the pretty flimsy button fasteners which I can definitely see having to be reinforced in the near future.
