The color of the pillows is a beautiful deep purple. The micro-suede is soft, and feels thicker than it really is. Very please to discover cover is remove-able for cleaning purposes. When I removed them from the box, I was a little concern that I'd purchase a flat skinny pillow~ they have fluffed nicely since. Fast shipping(less than week, with standard ship options). Very please with purchase, exactly as pictured~ material better than expected.
