In Ecoboton you will find sustainable and environmentally friendly buttons. We have different types: round and also forms like children's buttons, from a star to a shoe.
Ecoboton It is a new line of ecological buttons, from Botiboton, which comes from the idea of working with sustainable and ecological materials, environmentally friendly.
Types of buttons
We have several kinds of materials that are very varied with which they are manufactured: wooden buttons, coconut, white coconut, recycled cotton,coil, semola, natural shell, leather, paper, bamboo, jute, root, natural, etc.
The best known are wood and shell or mother-of-pearl. They are small and round pieces of material, usually of metal or plastic, are two or four holes, or with a sewing ring from behind. The buttons are usually cooked in the clothes to make it easier to open the jackets, shirts, skirts, pants.
They are used in all kinds of clothing and in all types of household items (curtains, Nordic covers, baby bags, sleeping bags, etc.)
Forms and materials of the buttons
The buttons usually have a round shape, so that it can be easily squeezed through the buttonhole. It is true that they also exist in many other forms and designs, to give a more original touch to the garment and to differentiate themselves from other designers.
Currently, buttons are made with many materials, from cotton, hemp, coffee benches, wood, shells, plastics, resins, choir, etc.
What are the benefits of using green buttons?
Ecological buttons have the advantage of being products that meet two standards:
1- They come from a natural material, such as wood, shells, choir, jute
2- That with the passing of time they are degraded and leave no residue.
Apart from the appearance they offer both tact and visually, they are of noble and warm material.
How to take care of the buttons
Natural or Ecological buttons, being 100% natural and biodegradable products, have a different response depending on the material.
Wood, tolerates water well but with the passage of time if washed it often goes drying and losing hydration.
The shells, both the River and the Akoya water temperature, abrasion, and do not age, but can be more fragile, can be broken.
The Corozo is a tropical fruit that resists very well, does not break, can be dyed and does not require any special care.
The Bamboo recommends dry cleaning, as it becomes matt.
The root passes the same, the water can alter it.
The rest of the materials do not require specific care.
In ancient times they were made of bone, wood and shells. In the industrial revolution they began to make metal, as they were more resistant and then became plastic or polyester. Because they were more economical and easy to work materials.
And now when we try to return to a more respectful manufacturing, we return to natural materials.Incorporating materials like cotton or bamboo, which before without the technology of now, could not be used as a button.
