BONE BUTTONS

As bone buttons are arguably some of the earliest button styles in history, it’s possible to appreciate their beauty without questioning their origins. Prized for their clean looks and versatility, bones buttons were first used as clothing fasteners in 12th Century France. Made by French bead makers in large quantities, bone buttons made their way throughout the British Isles by the 19th Century. Elaborately carved to simulate ivory, bone buttons were one of the go-to apparel fasteners throughout much of the 19th Century. Today, toggle, natural, and ivory styles comprise much of the bone button landscape.


HORN BUTTONS

With one of the richest of button histories, the wide-ranging beauty of horn buttons goes way back.

Today, when it comes to everything from menswear to home furnishings, horn buttons remain one of the most sought-after accent pieces.

MATHER OF PEARL BUTTONS

From what has become known as the “pearl button capital of the world” -- Muscatine, Iowa -- mother of pearl buttons had become one the world’s top-selling button styles by 1905. In fact, mother of pearl buttons constituted most of the 1.5 million pearl buttons produced annually during that time. Originally made from the glossy inner surfaces of freshwater mollusk shells, mother of pearl buttons were revered for their lustrous shine. From floral-print mother of pearl buttons to checkered mother of pearl buttons, the opulence of mother of pearl buttons remains unmatched to this day.

With a history as expansive as their beauty, shell buttons have a well-earned reputation for being one of the world’s most sought-after button styles. Prior to 1950, most were made in what was once termed the “The Pearl Button Capital of the World,” Muscatine, Iowa. In fact, Muscatine was once home to 49 shell button factories. John Fredrick Beopple, an immigrant farm worker from Germany during the late 19th Century, is credited as the pioneer of Muscatine’s shell button industry. By the turn of the 21st Century, China had become the center of the shell button industry. Available in every shape, size, quality, and type imaginable, the diversity of today’s shell buttons won’t be denied.
