Were you thinking of something more complicated than a three-tiered handmade embossed velvet pillow? You really don’t have to work so hard all the time. But Dutch Fashion Designer Annyta Lolyta always “over delivers,” so her OLEA is not only handmade, but also hand embossed, giving the middle tier of blue luxurious shades that only shine from an original Velvet Matters design. They all come from Annyta Lolyta’s hands.
Simple but elegant is one trademark of Annyta’s creations. Here are a few other examples: Take a look at the similarly beautiful, but pleasingly simple three-tier designs of ZEN BEAUTY, NIGHT SKY, GREEN HORNET, MR. SOPHISTICATED, and MARE.

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 embossed velvet pillow is an original work of art.
All of Annyta Lolyta’s artistic expressions are made with changeant or shot silk velvet, which is an extremely soft material that radiates a two-tone color effect. Annyta uses that characteristic to allow the colors to interact and intermingle in the light. This gives added depth to any setting.
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.
