This Duvet Cover is very beautiful. It zips to safely and totally cover my nice down comforter/bedspread. I was spilling coffee, juice, etc. on my down comforter and it is very expensive to get it cleaned. I looked for a duvet cover to protect it, but this one is VERY pretty and made my bedroom look so much nicer. It's very easy to remove, wash and dry then put back on the down comforter. It's thick enough to protect it, but thin enough to still feel the down. Just perfect!!
