I nearly dropped a star was that the white design had pale smudges of black showing through. I loved it enough, however, to buy a second and that was the same. On reflection it probably looks better as it is. I'm unsure why its labeled dry clean only as the cover is zipped and is made from strong ribbed cotton. These things aside, I love it and, especially at sale price, it's a great buy. I would buy it at full price though as, having seen it, I think it's well worth it.
