TIURI — Handmade Velvet Bedspread
Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta’s Handmade Velvet Bedspread Tiuri is named after the young knight in the beautiful Dutch children’s novel A Letter for the King by Tomke Dragt. Tiuri has to bring a letter to the king but on his way he’s unending challenges. Will he make the right choices and be knighted? Every step of the way was a challenge for poor Tiuri. But our brave hero ultimately succeeds, with a pure heart and all the best intentions.
Annyta felt a bit like Tiuri making this bedspread: some of the bands were re-printed as many as three times, because — like Tiuri’s quest — it had to be perfect. One time she stepped back and realized that her stitching, though beautiful and correct, did not blend seemlessly enough. So, back up the mountain. She overcame so many obstacles, but she did reach her goal, a beautiful velvet bedspread for you,

Note #3: Just like dating-site photographs, our Velvet Matters products might look just a little different in reality.
