Four oval buttons with the outline of a Grumpy Tortoise laser etched onto the face. Fill in the ten holes to outline the patterns in his shell. The holes are left empty so that you can stitch them in with your own needle and yarn or embroidery thread (The Tortoise button pictured at right was stitched with two half strands of embroidery floss, the Tortoise on the left was stitched with two full strands of embroidery floss). These buttons are a great way to personalize garments, add color to baby items or to embellish your accessories with a special touch. There are so many ways you can stitch these!
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.
Your buttons will arrive carded and will have a care card with them.
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.
Because they are made of a natural material, the appearance of each button may slightly vary.
These round bamboo buttons measure .85" x 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.
The patterns shown in the listing photos are Kimes and Wee Fast by Taiga Hilliard.
