€ 137

IZUMI is Japanese for FOUNTAIN or SPRING. As an interior accent, this handmade velvet showcases Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta’s artistry in painting her own designs in her own colors. NO WONDER she won an international textile design competition that awarded her a trip to Japan in the first place.

Notice how beautifully all the cushions interplay with one another as part of Annyta’s Japan series: HIRAKIRYO, AND KIOKO.

IZUMI, LIKE RYO, also highlights ANNYTA’S  ability to do create her own designs on fabric. Using the COLORS THAT SHE HERSELF MAKES.  Annyta also uses two of her favorite complementary colors here, red and green. She wrote a blog about her use of these shades HERE.

There is ONLY ONE IZUMI, so if you like it for your home or office TREAT YOURSELF AND BUY IT. It’s only here once.

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 specialty is printing/stamping/painting/embossing on velvet, a craft that she learned in England two decades ago, and has developed and refined ever since. She has a distinct style, combining different fabrics with a wonderful sense of colour and form.

Our velvet is made of 63% acetate and 37% viscose.
Our felt is 100% wool.
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 discoloring. 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.
