Dutch Fashion Designer Annyta Lolyta means business with her handmade pillow named “PEROZ.” The name means “VICTOR” in Persian, and PEROZ considered himself a “King of Kings,” probably because he overcame so many obstacles.

Like so many of his ancestors in Annyta’s PERSIAN RULER SERIES [CYRUS THE GREAT, DARIUS THE GREAT, ATRAXERXES, DIODOTUS, VAHAHRAN, SHAPUR, CAMBYSES or SOGDIANUS] PEROZ first had to overthrow a relative – in this case his younger brother – who had usurped the throne after their father’s death.

But PEROZ’S challenges continued during his reign. His country underwent such a drought that both the Tigres and the Euphrates rivers actually dried up. Historians claim that through Peroz’s courage of staying with his chosen plan and his wisdom, he led his country through the drought and back to prosperity.

Now, doesn’t this kind of ruler deserve to have a handmade pillow named after him? Wouldn’t he have expected at least his own handmade pillow honoring him, even if we are doing it 1,526 years after he died?

Like all of Annyta’s hand-printed velvet cushions, they are handmade from changeant velvet, sometimes called shot silk, which is long-lasting but extremely soft, and gives a luxurious two-tone sheen in the light.

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.
