SOGDIANUS is a hand-printed velvet cushion that goes beyond it’s namesake. He was an illegitimate son of ARTAXERXES who killed the crown prince to take the throne — but only for 45 days, until yet another illegitimate son murdered him to take the throne.
Putting the royal drama aside, let’s focus on why you came to this website: look at how beautiful this hand-printed velvet cushion would be in your home or office. SOGDIANUS features black velvet backing with an original hand-printed design from Dutch Fashion Designer Annyta Lolyta.
But this short-term illigitamate son is not the only KING in the PERSIAN RULER SERIES. Consider having CYRUS THE GREAT, DARIUS THE GREAT, CAMBYSES, ATRAXERXES, DIODOTUS, VAHAHRAN, PEROZ, SHAPUR, or ANTIOCHUS III.
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.

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.
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.
