Four round buttons with the outline of an ant laser etched onto the face. Fill in the eleven holes to outline the segments of his body. The holes are left empty so that you can stitch them in with your own needle and yarn or embroidery thread. You can use the yarn you're using for your project or a contrasting color. These buttons are a great way to personalize garments, add color to baby items or to embellish your accessories with a special touch.
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. 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.
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. 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.
These round bamboo buttons are currently available in this listing in 3/4" and 1" in diameter and are 1/8" thick. Please let me know if you would like to order a size that is not listed or if you would like a quantity other than 4.
