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 long rectangle, with a tunnel shank drilled through the middle. Face is hand carved with a checkerboard pattern. Absolutely stunning.
The long shape of this button works like a toggle style button; the buttonhole size is determined from the centre to the furthest edge and allowing for the thickness of the button.
48mm x 18mm x 13mm thick.
Polyester resin button with tunnel shank.
