Everyone has favorites. I’d like to say that I love all of these ETSY handmade velvet cushions on Velvet Matters the same, and to a certain extent I do. But sometimes Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta creates something that just sings for me. TRIFOLIUM does just that. The way she moves FROM GREEN-TURQUOISE HAND-STAMPED LEAVES on top to lime green brushstrokes in the center to BURNT ORANGE HAND-PRINTED DESIGNS – all in one ETSY handmade velvet cushion – just captured me.
It’s the lightness and darkness of the greens combined with the red-orange underlayer that just captivated me.
Notice the top turquoise layer with hand stamped leaf designs. That velvet band alone is unmistakably alluring. Yet, she is just beginning, because the middle band of changeant velvet brings in the lime green of the clover leaves, but adds hand-painted brushstrokes in greens and red.
In the bottom layer, Annyta gives us a red-green changeant velvet layer, but here she hand prints light and dark green abstract designs reminiscent of tree leaves. Taken together, we see not only Annyta’s play in colors, but also her wide ranging ability to stamp or print or paint her artistic sensibiities onto her velvet “canvas.”
Annyta makes all of her Velvet Matters products with changeant or shot silk velvet, which is an extremely soft, ultra-high-quality material. That material is Annyta’s trademark. It gives a two-tone effect as it reflects the light, which makes her velvet artwork even more rich 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, and now she has moved into home furnishings. The Velvet Matters webshop brings Annyta’s specialized velvet artistic creations to the world.
Annyta’s specialty is printing/painting/stamping/embossing 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 velvet cushion is an original work of art.
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.
