Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta often makes her handmade velvet cushions in pairs. Not matching pairs, mind you, but COMPANION PAIRS. Here with MR. COLORFUL, Annyta also created MRS. COLORFUL as a perfect complement to your home or office.
Each handmade velvet cushion is a unique expression of her artistry with color, form and fabric. Annyta makes all of her Velvet Matters products with changeant or shot silk velvet, which is an extremely soft, ultra-high-quality material. That is Annyta’s trademark. It gives a two-tone effect as it reflects the light, which makes her artwork even more enriching and appealing.
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 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.
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.
