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, dyed polyester resin is shaped and polished into a right angle triangle, with a twist. Face is hand carved with a deep spiral with a soft indent at the base; a tunnel shank is drilled through the lower middle. 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.
Polyester resin button with tunnel shank.
