The Old Button ( Y Hen Botwm in Welsh ) is inspired by a box of old buttons my grandmother gave me when I started making my own clothes as a child. I still have this box and keep it well stocked with buttons salvaged from old clothes and the occasional modern quirky design that catches my eye.
I make an eclectic mix of high quality hand crafted items for children and the home, combining two of my passions - creating new designs and a thrifty use of materials. I like to use both new and recycled fabrics including 100% cotton, silk and linen mixtures together with scraps from my ever expanding hamper of interesting fabrics that is constantly topped up by my friends and family.
As I love the design aspect of creating, I am always coming up with new ideas for products and only make a limited number. Often items are unique, as I love playing with fabric and colour combinations, and adding different trims. And of course, I try and incorporate a old button or two into each item I make.
If you like any of my items but want a different colour, size or motif, just send me a message and I'll see what I can do.
Now for the small print ....
I try and keep postage costs as low as possible and I only charge single postage - if you buy more than one item at the same time, only the higher of the postage charges applies. I will post out first class within 3 working days of cleared payment. (Personalised items will take a little longer - see posting for details.)
I will happily post overseas, just send me a message and I'll work out postage.
I am sure you will love your hand crafted item but if you need to return anything, just send me a message giving reasons and we will arrange. Depending on the reason, you may need to cover return postage and personalised items may incur a return charge.
