The Button Designs up-cycles salvaged materials to create a number of unique items:
These unique pants and skirts are up-cycled (mainly from ladies’ shirts and linen). Some have other pieces of ‘flair’ from the shirts they were created from (buttons, feature images, elastic, ruffles…). The thread used in sewing is the only non-salvaged material involved.
The pages are made from salvaged textiles. The ‘flair’ comes from op-shops (lace, felt, etc). The cover image comes from salvaged t-shirts, curtains, etc. The ‘crinkly’ sound within the pages comes from used packaging. The thread used in sewing is the only non-salvaged material involved.
The picks are punched from old credit cards, etc. The packaging is also completely made from salvaged materials!
