These buttons are deadstock from a local sewing shop that recently closed its doors. We have a huge display full of loose buttons and are working to add them to our site so we can share them with you!
Condition: Vintage Deadstock
Material: Corozo, also called vegetable ivory, is a material harvested from nuts of Tagua trees. The nuts are harvested after they fall naturally to the ground. So, not only are these buttons sustainable in the sense that they are deadstock, but they also are made out of a material that is harvested sustainably! Corozo buttons can come in a variety of colors due to the use of dyes, and they usually have a slight woodgrain look to them, but they feel more similar to plastic than wood.
Thank you for shopping second hand first! You're helping us do better for the planet by choosing to sew sustainably. You can help us spread the word about our little online secondhand fabric shop by Pinning our items and sharing our website with your friends!
We do our best to color-match each photo to the fabric, however, device displays vary greatly in quality, warmth, and vibrancy. We cannot guarantee what you see here will be an exact match to the color of the fabric when it arrives.
