Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta painted a landscape for us with this hand painted artistic pillow she titled “FAR HORIZON.” It is a Dutch tradition among artists to paint their landscape. As a people they are very attached to their land, which is understandable, because with their canal system they literally created this land from what used to be the bottom of the North Sea and its surrounding marshlands. But Annyta’s artistry is not simply the hand painted horizon on this ultra-soft and luxurious fabric, she also accentuates her skill by choosing complementary and contrasting color combinations that give this hand painted artistic pillow another dimension of beauty. The Camel-green top band blends with the brown landscape, while the powerful red velvet underground brings our attention to all that is above.
Imagine having FAR HORIZON in your home or office. Buying this pillow will take you places, we promise.
All Velvet Matters products, including this handmade velvet pillow, 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 speciality 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. Each handmade original velvet cushion is an original work of art.
Our velvet is made of 63% acetate and 37% viscose.
Our felt is 70% wool and 30% polyester fiber.
NOTE #1: Our cushions are filled with down feathers. If you want to buy just the cushion cover with no fill or 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 discolouring. For maintenance tips see the FAQ.
Note #3: Just like dating-site photographs, our Velvet Matters cushion colours 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.
