With this four-tiered, hand-painted velvet cushion, Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta honors one of the most famous Persian rulers — ARDASHIR, founder of the Sasanian dynasty.
Annyta crowns ARDASHIR with crushed silver, then paints one of her trademark designs with a red/purple orb of power hovering in line with green abstract forms all within a dark velvet background. After a band of — what else — gold, Annyta again provides her personal artistic touch with hand prints in dark- and light-brown linear shapes. These are ARDASHIR’s ruling spears, holding up the glory of his kingdom in this hand painted velvet cushion.
WHY NOT BE BOLD AND BUY all of Annyta’s PERSIAN RULER SERIES?: CYRUS THE GREAT, DARIUS THE GREAT, XERXES THE GREAT, ATRAXERXES, DIODOTUS, PEROZ, SHAPUR, VAHAHRAN, SOGDIANUS, CAMBYSES or ANTIOCHUS III.

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. Each handmade 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.
