8 Hole Buttons
8 Hole Buttons
Possibly my most versatile style of button - 8 Hole Bamboo Buttons! This listing is for four buttons made of 1/8" bamboo; available in 5/8", 3/4", 1" and 1.25". There are many ways you can fill in the eight holes. For some examples, please see the listing photos or look at my instagram. With only a eight holes at the center, the natural grain of the bamboo really gets to be enjoyed in these buttons. The holes allow for just a pop of color, highlighting the natural beauty of the material.
The eight holes are left empty so that you can embroider them with your own needle and yarn or embroidery thread. You may want to use only one or two plies of the yarn to fill it in if it your yarn is super thick. These buttons are a great way to personalize garments, add color to baby items or to embellish your accessories with a special touch.
These buttons can go in the washer and the dryer, but as with most things made of natural materials, they will probably last longer if they are hand washed or if the item is dried flat.
It is important to me that each item I make is special and bamboo contributes to this as a unique material. Bamboo plywood is sustainable and is stronger than wood. Your buttons won't be indestructible but can withstand more than a needle gauge made of birch. Bamboo has a rich history of roles and uses in Asian mythology and culture and is even used in Chinese medicine because of its anti-bacterial properties.
Your buttons will arrive carded and will have a care card with them.
Because they are made of a natural material, the appearance of each button may slightly vary.
Please let me know if you would like to order a size or quantity other than what is listed.
