The colours are superb; the lilac satin is bright, clear and rich. The material has a good weight to it and a lovely feel. This means drafts won't blow up the edges, and also protects your cards better when wrapped.
Some people wrap their reading cloth around their cards. Others people prefer to keep their cards in a Tarot bag along with their folded cloth. Tarot reading cloths provide a clean, defined space from which to read.

The colour gained its superior authority as dying cloth purple was an expensive process, involving collecting secretions from two types of molluscs, so only the wealthiest people in society could afford to have clothes made of the colour.

People often use the colour, whether through meditation or visualisation, to try and increase their spiritual development and access higher states.
