Plastic Button - Couture Range hand carved polyester resin
These Italian designer buttons are made in the artisanal style that Italy is known for.
In this case, pigment dyed polyester resin is shaped and polished into a cube with a tunnel shank drilled through the corner, and hand carved with a geometric pattern on four sides. Absolutely stunning.
Because of its shape, this button takes a larger buttonhole than its diameter. Perfectly suited to hand knits where the buttonhole can stretch and return to size, or with a welted buttonhole.
Polyester resin button with tunnel shank.
Italy, 2000s. Limited edition.
