Dutch Fashion Designer Annyta Lolyta captured Persian greatness with this hand-printed velvet cushion. Called “Cyrus the Great,” this hand-printed velvet cushion contains the conflicting vertical and horizontal white lines in a black background as in the “Cambyses” cushion [he was one of Cyrus’ sons, but “the Great” also contains a lighter rose field to contrast with the gray-gold and black. This changeant velvet pattern interweaves with hand-printed, striped blocks that offer a contrasting design.
All are made of changeant or shot silk velvet, which is a two-tone material that changes in the light. Each hand-painted cushion in Velvet Matters is a unique expression of Annyta’s artistry with color, form and fabric.

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 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.

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.
