Handwoven 100% Thai silk is used in all the components, for the most part. Irregularities are normal and add to the interest of the fabric. Occasionally, a faux silk cotton/polyester blend from Thailand is used when a particular pattern or color cannot be found in silk. It has the look and feel of silk, and can be drycleaned as safely as silk. The fabric content is always noted in the ensemble description and on the labels.

The pattern on the fabrics is woven, rather than printed. The duvet covers and quilts are backed with cotton fabric. Closure is with fabric-covered buttons. Duvet cover size is full/queen—92" x 96" (234 cm x 244 cm). They can be made smaller by alteration, for an extra charge.

Pillow shams are reversible and close with fabric-covered buttons. The two sides are usually different color combinations, which allows for variation in the pillow grouping.

While every attempt has been made to portray colors accurately on the Web site, color reproduction varies from computer monitor to monitor. For serious potential buyers, fabric swatches or printed photos are available for an accurate color sample. Many of the silks used are iridescent, so that there is a subtle color shift as the viewer's angle changes. Unfortunately, this is impossible to capture in a still photograph.

All bedding is dryclean only.
