Handmade Velvet Pillow – QUERCUS SUBER



Handmade Velvet Pillow
€ 126

Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta gave QUERCUS SUBER so much beauty that she also gave it a last name.

“Quercus Suber” is known as the Cork Oak, the source of European cork found in Southwest Europe and Northwest Africa. The bark separates from the living tissue of the tree – and what remains on the tree is the same orangish color seen in Annyta’s pillow. Annyta’s “QUERCUS SUBER” features a HAND PAINTED FOREST in the middle, while underneath is her hand-printed image of MOTHER EARTH feeding her cork forest.

Annyta always uses changeant or shot silk velvet in QUERCUS SUBER. This is an ultra-soft, ultra-long-lasting type of high-quality velvet. This material is Annyta Lolyta’s trademark, because it gives a rich and mysterious two-tone effect.

It isn’t so difficult to see the artist’s eye in this handmade velvet pillow. Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta named this “QUERCUS SUBER” after the Cork Oak tree found in Southwest Europe and Northwest Africa. Topped by a brown-purple band, Annyta then drew her forest of cork trees using a background of 
red-brown changeant velvet with hand-painted brown and orange abstract tree forms. In the bottom layer, Annyta used a black-brown velvet base to hand-print Mother Earth’s layers of ground feeding her forest.
Don’t you just love how she views the world through her velvet creations? Don’t you want to have a piece of that magic in your home or office?

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.
