Ticking Stripe Duvet Cover is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from HIGH QUALITY. PERFECT WEIGHT. STYLISH. Not sure this duvet needs another 5-star rating, but here goes. I've enjoyed this duvet and matching Euro shams for over a year. The fabric is quite heavy, which I prefer. Gives the duvet the proper weight to smooth out and hang beautifully. I use a feather insert. It doesn't show my dog's fur and its "feel" or "hand" is comfortable and nice to the touch. My only complaints are the complaints I have for most duvets: there is no CA King size available (so the duvet hangs a little long on the sides) and I would love to see duvets made with at least two sides open with zippers so that seating an insert is not so cumbersome. I actually pin the insert inside the duvet and have to crawl around inside it to get it positioned correctly. I admire the professional bed stylists at Ballard. My duvet would never look so smooth even just back from the dry cleaners, but that's okay. It's ticking so a few light wrinkles just add to the "shabby chic" look. The only way I'd be happier would be if Ballard were to offer complementary drapes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Designer quality The duvet is very heavy and made very well. The custom embroidery was perfectly placed. Very satisfied with the set of duvet and shams. The set gave a designer touch to the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delighted with item I purchased the shams in Sandalwood and I'm delighted with them. I'm outfitting a daybed and wanted something that worked with the pattern of the mattress cover but that I could store actual pillows in and not have to dig them out of the closet. These are perfect; love the substantial weight of the fabric and the ties are a darling closure. The background color of the sandalwood has some depth with the stripes being darker so they don't look washed out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ticking Stripe in Spa, Bedskirt, duvet cover, and shams Very happy with these items! The fabric is heavier than I was expecting, and that is a good thing! Would like to buy some additional yardage for window treatment, but not sure if the fabric yardage is the same weight as the duvet cover, bedskirt, and pillow shams... might be to heavy for curtains??? Still contemplating that! Yes, I'd recommend these items, if you're into "ticking stripes"... which I am, so loving them all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for! We are rebuilding our home after a devastating fire and I was looking for exactly this! I love the timeless look of the ticking stripe and the fabric is very, very nice. I also purchased the skirt, the shams and a monogramed pillow. Can't wait to get it on the new bed! I had previously purchased a quilt that I also love. Very soft and beautiful. I have never been disappointed with Ballard. Thank you so much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Ticking Stipe Duvet Cover! High quality well made duvet cover. Looks beautiful with a coordinated flowered quilt and shams. Purchased the Euro Shams as well but they did not come as pictured. They came without ties that were shown in pictures, so I sent them back. Love the duvet and the ties in the corners are great for keeping the down comforter in place. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such nice quality I have always loved ticking bedding and this did not disappoint. The fabric and design are just perfect. I have not added the inserts yet, but they look great without for now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product is great Absolutely love the duvet, shams & bed skirt. Very good quality material & workmanship. Wanted something that wouldn't overpower the room & have the ability to use a wide variety of throw pillows with it. This was the perfect choice. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and exactly what I was looking for! I love love love this ticking stripe duvet! Its a great quality and the insert lays perfectly and doesn't get bunched up. I just love the look and the weight of this duvet! perfection in my book! Also the shams look fabulous with the monogram!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable and heavy!!! I absolutely LOVE this duvet! It is super heavy and extremely well crafted! Although it is super heavy, it's not overbearing or hot to sleep under; it can be used all year round. It is made extremely well and ALL of the stripes match up perfectly. There are also ties inside all of the four corners so that your down comforter will stay in place! We have three short hair doxies that like to snuggle and with the material of this duvet and the pattern, you can't even see where they've shed!!! The material reminds me of a canvas. This will last for years!!! Extremely impressed! I also purchased the matching euro shams as well. In love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is great quality fabric Really like the shams and duvet. The fabric is good quality ! I am using it without an insert for summer. Will be ready for winter with an insert!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the look! Although this item was back ordered and then delayed multiple times, I am very pleased with the quality. The fabric is very heavy, and the duvet stays in place very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shams These were just what I've been looking for: a simple, neutral ticking strip to coordinate with existing bedding. We also added the Ava quilt in Sandalwood, and the Pom Pom quilt in neutral. Love them all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great duvet I was very happy with this duvet. It is striking and seems like it will hold up well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It Looks AMAZING The duvet cover arrived matching the online description and photo. Easy to insert the comforter inside and the corner ties were long enough to easily secure it. I also ordered the shams and bed skirt. The bed skirt needed ironing, as expected, and was easy to press. The fabric weight of the cover was a bit heavier than I had expected but was by no means any deterrent for keeping it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good customer service Ordered the queen duvet, bedskirt and pillow case..the duvet came with seams coming apart. I sent pics and returned it for an exchange. The replacement was fine and it fits the bill. The bedskirt is for a full or queen so it is a bit small for a queen but close enough fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute Shams! I really like these shams in my guest bedroom. They arrived yesterday and are as pictured in the catalog. One thing I want to mention; the on-line information for cleaning them says "machine wash" but the tag on each sham says "dry clean". They are 100% cotton so I machine washed them (cold water). Ballard Designs might want to research the info. and correct if needed. Other than that, they are great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but short I purchased the standard size ticking stripe shams in black/ivory and really like the color and quality of fabric. The standard shams I received seem short- barely covered the pillow insert. But, still kept them as like the look with the duvet. A couple of inches longer would have been perfect.
Date published: 2017-06-26
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too small, but cute! I purchased the queen bedskirt for a queen bed. The white cotton fabric that lays on top of the box spring also has a good 2" of ticking stripe on all three sides. It is too small for my bed. On the positive side, it's so darn cute! I bought the Spa and just love the look. Check the measurements carefully (I thought a queen was a queen)!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Heavy and Course No doubt about the Ticking Stripe duvet is a great, crisp, clean look! What was unexpected was the weight of the fabric, which is not mentioned in the fabric description. It is a substantial poplin, almost a canvas. Not soft what so ever, nothing you want next to your skin. It's also too heavy for warm seasons. Thought is would work well for cooler weather, but since the fabric is so heavy it takes time for heat to transfer from a down comforter through the heavy fabric. Do not recommend for a bed you want to sleep in on a regular basis.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So heavy! I love the design but this duvet is SO heavy that we cannot sleep under it. I hate that i spent so much on this and didn't return it.
Date published: 2017-07-04
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very attractive until... I loved this with the green duvet, but the material is canvas it isn't anything you would want to sleep under. I can't see putting a 400.00 duvet inside this and snuggling up...the material makes that impossible in my opinion. Sadly I had to send it back.
Date published: 2017-02-08
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love the look, not the material I purchased the duvet and accessories to match for my summer home. I like the look of everything but I did not expect the material to be so heavy. It's a heavy canvas material. It's too heavy and rough to use as a duvet cover to sleep with because it's uncomfortable with all that weight and roughness of the material. So I used it to throw over the bed and remove it when sleeping. This means I needed two quilts -- one with a normal duvet to sleep under and this to decorate the bed. Due to the bulk, this duvet cover is difficult to wash. it also take 3 long heavy duty cycles to dry. I would love this look to have been made with normal bedding material. I want canvas in my awnings not on my bed

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tag on sham says that dry cleaning is recommended Love the style of the duvet and shams. However... The product description says "machine washable." However, the tag on the pillow shams says that dry cleaning is recommended. I decided to wash them anyway in cold water and dry lightly in the dryer. The 100 percent cotton fabric is heavy and sturdy -- almost like canvas -- but the shams shrank and are now too small for standard pillows. I will make pillow inserts so that I can still use them. However, I am returning the duvet because with dogs and kids, I need to wash all bedding and know that they will still fit!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the same color, too heavy I would return this if it were possible. I realized the color was not the same as in the picture, it is more of a light tan and black stripe. The fabric is not very soft (it feels like a canvas material) and extremely heavy making for a very uncomfortable nights sleep. After debating on cheaper duvet covers for weeks, I wish I would have went with a cheaper version. I am extremely disappointed.
Date published: 2017-04-04
Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is great if you hate being comfortable Tired of how comfortable your bed is? Enjoy the feel of rough canvas against your skin as you sleep? Then this is the product for you! Seriously this this the scratchiest and roughest fabric I have even seen made into bedding, it's like being covered in a heavy burlap sack. I would recommend this only if you plan on looking at your bed but never actually sleeping in it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great look, but not right for this use I was really hopeful when I ordered this product; I thought it would be a perfect match for our guest room. I waited patiently (it took four moths to receive it) and was truly disappointed when it arrived. The color and pattern were as advertised but the fabric itself was WAY too heavy to be used as a duvet cover. It was more like tenting canvas than fabric you would use for bedding. I even split the top and bottom apart thinking I could substitute a lighter weight fabric for the underside, but even then, I knew it wouldn't work -- even in the dead of winter it would be way too hot to sleep under. I reassembled it and the cover now sits in the shipping box until I can donate it to charity. If you like the pattern, I'd suggest using this fabric for upholstery only.
