The product is that what you pay for. the color bands are more print than embriodered, the cloth itself, is no thicker than most sheets. So if you looking for a heavier woven material don't buy this one. Overall the quality is what you pay for. It is in fact useful for your everyday purpose of prayer. Kind afraid to wash it though. Might not survive the machine Or in fact that the patch work might fall away from the main material, or the printed color bands might fade away. Doesn't come with washing instructions either.
