$5.50 CAD

A set of dignified engraved buttons for your next shirt making project.  The tiny subtle engraving reads "Thread Theory Designs, Inc."  These dense, low profile, tan colored buttons feature four sew-through holes and measure 3.8" (10 mm) in diameter and 5/64" (2 mm) thick. Each package includes 12 of these buttons - enough to sew to a button placket, collar stand, cuffs, and both collar points.

These buttons are crafted from Tagua Nuts in Panama City.  Tagua nuts are a renewable resource that can be harvested with very little impact on the environment - the nuts are collected by members of high altitude South American villages once they have fallen from the palms that they grow on.  The collection of these nuts provides work for remote communities.  The nuts are then manufactured into the highest of quality 'vegetable ivory' buttons in Panama City by skilled workers and artisans.  Tagua Nuts (also referred to as 'Corozo') are renowned for their strength and density.  Corozo buttons can be washed, dried, ironed and worn for many years without risk of cracking, melting, molding or otherwise wearing.  When the shirt you've lovingly sewn these buttons to wears out save them for your next shirtmaking project!
