VELVET MATTERS has it’s own youtube channel with OTHER PRODUCT VIDEOS HERE.
“Fez Remixed” is a hand-painted cushion in which Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta has weaved together her varied and versatile skills with velvet. She uses a sand-green changeant velvet background for her hand printed abstract design in pale green and blue purple. She hand paints another band with light yellow, rose and gold free-hand designs, and in the bottom-third she gives us geometric and linear shapes. Ahh, the mind of the artist brought out in living color through a hand painted cushion!
Great as a gift [to yourself] or for any situation where an interior needs a boost of beauty. Everyone will always remember this “Fez.” You might also consider partnering FEZ with some PERSIAN RULERS: Ardashire, Cyrus the Great, “wild-ass Vahahran,” Artaxerxes, Cambyses, Sogdianus, Antiochus III, Diodotus and Peroz.
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 speciality is printing/stamping/painting/embossing on velvet, a craft that she learned in England two decades ago, and has developed and refined ever since. She has a distinct style, combining different fabrics with a wonderful sense of colour and form.
The material Annyta uses in all of her hand painted pillows is “changeant” or shot silk velvet. It is known for its softness and durability, but it also gives off a two-tone effect, so the look and feel of each color is further intensified by the two-tone effects playing within the pillow.
Through a process that she developed as an artist, her artistry in color is highlighted by the beautiful two-color effect of this luxurious material as it reflects light.
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.
