This handmade pillow is named after yet another Persian ruler, Peroz, whose name means “The Victor” in Persian. Is Dutch Fashion Designer Annyta Lolyta trying to make a contemporary political statement by naming so many of her original artwork – these handmade, hand-painted pillows – after ancient Persian rulers? After PEROZ, she has CYRUS THE GREAT, DARIUS THE GREAT, ATRAXERXES, DIODOTUS, VAHAHRAN, SHAPUR, CAMBYSES and SOGDIANUS.
The Dutch are a little odd that way, always trying to mediate disputes and trying not cause any trouble anywhere. But what the Dutch also love to do is MAKE A SALE! They are Europe’s merchants, so maybe OUR LOVELY DUTCH ARTIST is using ancient royalty to help her make a sale.
Her handmade pillows are genuine art. She hand-paints forms and designs on velvet and voila, a beautiful handmade pillow is created. “PEROZ” is no exception. It features two stripes of gray-pink changeant velvet and two stripes of olive green-purple changeant velvet along with her very own abstract designs.
PEROZ is a handmade pillow with hand-printed, multi-colored “quirky” lines, as ANNYTA herself describes them. This handmade pillow is framed by two stripes of gray-pink changeant velvet and two stripes of olive green-purple changeant velvet. How’s that for dashing colors? PEROZ is “the Victor” at Velvet Matters.
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.
