I adore the color and quality of the linen itself. The first day I put it over my duvet insert, I was a little disappointed. I turned the duvet inside out to match up the corners of my insert and the duvet. The stitching looks a little thin. The thread they used is not heavy duty at all. Already dreading the day it will come apart. Luckily I know how to sew if that happens. The part that was most disappointing to me though, is actually the fact that it does not come with any ties to keep it in place with my insert. My insert floats all around it every night. I fix it every morning or night before going to bed again. It’s unfortunate when my insert came with loops on all sides and corners for this exact purpose. With all that being said, when the insert is straightened out, it looks really nice on my bed. I can’t get over the color though. It’s very beautiful and ties together with my room well.
