Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta’s hand painted cushion PREHNITE is patterned after the light green crystal found in South Africa of the same name. Its effect on someone holding it is to induce a deep meditative state, enhancing the ability to visualize new dreams or plans.
Annyta’s PREHNITE can also have a magical effect on those who hold it. PREHNITE is made of changeant or shot silk velvet, which gives off a two-tone effect in the light. That attribute further hightlights Annyta’s artistry of color combinations, in this case four distinct bands within one handmade pillow design. Notice the beautiful lilac-green color combination in the middle band of PREHNITE. That color mirrors the beautiful green shading of the PREHNITE crystal of South Africa.
ZIRCON, Annyta’s sister creation, also features a four-band/hand painted pattern. Both would make beautiful “bookends” on any couch or sofa. Or even as a means of tying in two unmatched pieces of furniture in your home or office.

The Velvet Matters webshop now brings Annyta’s specialized velvet accessories to the world. Annyta’s specialty 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.

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.
