Imagine yourself sitting on this beautiful handmade velvet cushion and seeing two wild asses approaching. If you took your bow and shot them both with one arrow, and your wife sitting next to you did not praise you as you would like, would you banish her from the throne? Well, that’s what Persian King Vahahran supposedly did. As far as marketing goes, this cushion has an initial battle for appeal. We can’t all be like CYRUS THE GREAT, DARIUS THE GREAT, or ATRAXERXES. But “VAHAHRAN” the CUSHION really has a lot to offer. It has three vertical bands with black velvet, gray-gold and silver stripes of changeant velvet. It’s an original work of art by Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta, and it’s beautiful to sit on with YOUR OWN WILD ASS, if you have one.
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.

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.

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.
