Mother of Pearl Button Production

Mother of pearl buttons are created out of the shells of marine and freshwater molluscs. The production technology is quite simple, yet not that easy: the flat buttons are cut out of a shell, given the necessary shape and dyed. To obtain a popular white colour, mother of pearl buttons are bleached in a weak boiling solution of hydrochloric acid.

In a couture segment, you can find mother of pearl buttons by such Italian and French manufacturers as Gritti, Secondo Stefano Pavese, Bottonificio B.A.P. and Brochot. Once seen their buttons, you won’t be much surprised to learn they source mother of pearls from the seabed of such seas as the Coral, Fiji, Philippine, the seas washing Indonesia and the coastal waters of Madagascar.
