About Us

It all started in 2010 somewhere in Avignon, in the Vaucluse, with buttons from a leather coat that kept dangling and had to be sewn up regularly (in fact I ask my mom to do it). I then search the Internet for buttons that could be fixed without having to sew them, naturally thinking that I was not the only one in this situation and that there would necessarily be solutions. But after extensive research, it is clear that despite the era of high technology in which we live, the button has not changed much over the centuries. By dint of snooping around, I ended up finding a Chinese seller in the depths of the Web offering buttons whose fixing principle is identical to that of buttons for jeans. That is to say, we take a hammer and drive a metal rivet into the button, which is also made of metal. Well that was it, at least those damn buttons would be fixed once and for all! But in terms of design, there was nothing transcendent: although in metal and presenting a beautiful surface without holes, the manufacturer only offered buttons that exactly imitated the appearance of buttons with holes...

From there the idea germinated: even if it means wearing buttons as much as they are beautiful and having the choice! I think about the question but I stop there, although the idea remains in the back of my mind. After a few years, I decided in 2016 that it was time to make this idea a reality. I call on a design office in England to implement my original idea but on their advice we develop a first different version. In 2019, a first prototype of shirt buttons was created and pre-production series were launched in a factory in Italy near Milan. This version is relatively functional but requires several technical improvements. After reflection, I decide to come back to my first idea and call on the Fab Lab in Carpentras to make the 3D drawings. From there, I develop new prototypes with the Italian factory but this time adapted to the jackets. After validation of the operation of the latter, in 2022 the new models and the marketing are launched.
