The organic and individual finish of these buttons provides the perfect addition to natural fibres. Made from Jesmonite, an eco-friendly composite, the buttons are individually crafted in Yorkshire so each one is unique. They are water and heat resistant and are sealed to provide extra protection during machine washing.

What’s this Jesmonite stuff
You might have noticed on both the Knitting Goddess and the Bobbie & Joy website that we are stocking badges and jewellery made from Jesmonite. Well, what’s this Jesmonite stuff we keep talking about then?
Well, it’s like resin but more eco-friendly, like stone but lighter, can feel like ceramic but stronger. It is the ultimate ‘transformer’ material, becoming marble or metal, concrete, leather or fine decorative mouldings on the face of a building. It has been used in everything from construction to fine art, hidden in full sight in places as diverse as Legoland, the Tate Modern and Winchester Cathedral.
So, you can see why we love working with Jesmonite and best of all it’s non-toxic, safe to work with, durable and heat resistant. What’s not to love?
