Day 106 : Reigate
Today's button is a little one, based on buttons found on a doublet that dates from the early 17th century. It is another that will be in my next book (The Button Maker Vol 1). Little, but a sweet button that for me is quite important when looking at the history of thread wrapping. It is one that ties documentary evidence in with surviving buttons. Always nice.
For this button I have used a 10mm mould (cut especially - we don't currently have these available), and a hand dyed linen from my friend Debbie of the Mulberry Dyer.
Size: 10mm / 7⁄16" / 18L
