Our Hand-printed Velvet Cushion – Antiochus III has it's own YOUTUBE VIDEO HERE.

Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta had to give the Greeks their due with Antiochus III as part of her PERSIAN RULER SERIES of hand-printed velvet cushions. Antiochus III ruled Persia from 222 B.C.E., well after the conquering Alexander the Great's death.

Antionchus III called himself “the Great,” and MAYBE he was, but his hand-printed velvet cushion ABSOLUTELY IS GREAT! Annyta worked with black velvet but also hand-printed an original design with yellow, gray-blue and blue. Such beauty. Antiochus III would have called this a “great” velvet cushion.

Take a look at the other “GREATS” of the PERSIAN RULER SERIES: CYRUS THE GREAT, DARIUS THE GREAT, XERXES THE GREAT, CAMBYSES, ATRAXERXES, DIODOTUS, VAHAHRAN, PEROZ, SHAPUR, or SOGDIANUS.

Like all of Annyta's hand-printed velvet cushions, they are handmade from changeant velvet, sometimes called shot silk, which is long-lasting but extremely soft, and gives a luxurious two-tone sheen in the light.

Antiochus III ruled Persia from 222 B.C.E. and later in his reign he began referring to himself as “the Great.” It must have been difficult for him hold the name, because the Romans kept defeating in battle. Still, this hand-printed velvet cushion named in his honor does him justice. Dutch Fashion Designer Annyta Lolyta crated a hand-printed, original design with yellow, gray-blue and blue. It is a thing of original beauty. There’s only one of them, just like there was only one Antiochus III, and we can safely say that at least one of them is obviously GREAT.

He’s not the only GREAT that ANNYTA MADE: CYRUS THE GREAT, DARIUS THE GREAT, XERXES THE GREAT, CAMBYSES, ATRAXERXES, DIODOTUS, VAHAHRAN, PEROZ, SHAPUR, or SOGDIANUS.

Made of changeant or shot silk velvet, this two-tone material changes in the light. Each handmade hand-painted cushion in Velvet Matters is a unique expression of Annyta’s artistry with color, form and fabric.

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.
