Actually, it is polyester microfiber, which is very soft, yet sturdier than cotton. I am very pleased that they didn't make the backing of cotton, because on our last quilt, the all-cotton backing was so lightweight that it wore out before the quilt top and we had to replace the whole thing.
The microfiber polyester is not slick or slippery; it feels like fine cotton. It coordinates with the cotton fabrics on the top of the quilt in both appearance and feel.
