When we first got it we were a little thrown off by just how much purple there was with this rug. However after placing our sofa on it and stepping back we actually really like it. It just needed something to break it up a bit. It's good quality. It is thick and semi soft. We have had no issues with loose threading or color rubbing off. I spilled some coffee on it and was easily able to blot it up without any color/dye being rubbed into the rag I used.
