Beautiful purple color. Thick and closely woven, actual upholstery fabric that is smooth (not scratchy) to the touch. Heavy duty, hidden zipper that goes three quarters of the way around to make it easy to put on the futon mattress. Good fit on full mattress. I can not comment on long term wear, because I just got it. I rarely am impressed enough with a product to write a review, but this is so much nicer than what I was expecting, for the low price I paid, that I wanted to let people know about it.
