This is why it is prone to crushing. Put simply, the more packed your carpet pile, the denser it is. It can also be distorted by high levels of foot traffic.

Less movement in your carpet pile means less friction. The less wear the longer your carpet will last.

Dark patterns are traditionally more forgiving than solid colors. Marks and stains over time will blend in with the patterns.
