Dutch Fashion Designer Annyta Lolyta plays with color in this this faux fur velvet cushion. Like all her cushions, this faux fur velvet cushion is handmade. Each Velvet Matters cushion is a unique expression of her artistry with color, form and fabric. This work, which she called “Soft Diamonds,” has a feeling of strength and durability because of its strong color, but the illusion of durability is wonderfully contrasted with the extremely soft, luxurious feel of the mohair faux fur. Contrasting and delighting. This is Annyta. This is Velvet Matters.
All Velvet Matters products are handmade in the Netherlands by Annyta. Since 1995, she has been making exclusive, hand-printed scarves and other fashion accessories. The Velvet Matters webshop now brings Annyta’s specialized velvet accessories to the world.
Annyta’s specialty is printing on velvet, a craft that she learned in England and has developed and refined ever since. She has a distinct style, combining different fabrics with a wonderful sense of color and form. Looking at the world around her with an eye for detail, Annyta is inspired by nature, art and everyday life. These make excellent gifts to yourself or those you love.
faux-fur: 80% polyester and 20% mohair on a cotton backing; felt: 70% wool, 30% polyester fiber for durability.
NOTE #1: Our cushions are filled with down feathers. If you want to buy just the cushion cover with no fill or you’d like to substitute another type of fill, please contact us.
Note #2: Velvet Matters products become more alive and beautiful with age. But please protect them. Even though we use the highest high quality changeant or shot-silk velvet, prolonged exposure to bright sunlight might cause some fading or discoloring. For maintenance tips see the FAQ.
Note #3: Just like dating-site photographs, our Velvet Matters cushion colors might look just a little different in reality. But don’t worry, unlike dating sites, our velvet cushions are always even more beautiful in real life – it’s just that maybe, once in a while, they might look a little different from the web photos.
