ANNYTA gathered all of her BLUE VELVET CUSHIONS on this page HERE.
WITH “Breaking Waves II,” Dutch Fashion Designer Annyta Lolyta makes another handmade pillow design reminiscent of the sun shining on the North Sea. Since she’s Dutch, when Annyta thinks of the sun and sea, she cannot help but think of the North Sea in its many shades of blue on the water. Like it’s cousin Breaking Waves I, this handmade pillow design also highlights Annyta Lolyta’s abstract designs and enticing color combinations: white-black, blue-red, and sand-green, with a design in orange and blue-purple.
Annyta Lolyta makes all of her handmade pillow designs with changeant or shot silk velvet, which is a special material that gives off a two-tone effect in the light. That attribute further highlights Annyta’s artistry of color combinations, in this case four distinct bands within one handmade pillow design.
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/stamping/painting/embossing on velvet, a craft that she learned in England two decades ago, and has developed and refined ever since. She has a distinct style, combining different fabrics with a wonderful sense of colour and form. Looking at the world around her with an eye for detail, Annyta is inspired by nature, art and everyday life. These make excellent gifts to yourself or those you love.

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.
