State buttons are an adorable way to customize your sewing, knitting or scrap-booking project. The outline of your state is laser etched with the texture of stockinette knitting stitch (but that doesn't mean these can only be used by knitters!) State buttons are the perfect gift for someone moving out of state or for a friend who has a lot of state pride.
These round bamboo buttons are currently available in two sizes; 3/4" and 1". Please contact me if you would like a different size or a quantity that is not a multiple of four.
Your buttons will arrive as a card of four and with a care card. Bamboo buttons can go in the washer and the dryer, but 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 needle gauge 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.
Because they are made of a natural material, the appearance of each button may slightly vary.
These are also available as magnets and pins. They make great favors for weddings, parties or events and can even be personalized with dates and names.
