Buttons have been around almost as long as clothing. They are used to decorate and secure different clothing pieces. There is a rich history to buttons all over the globe, from the first buttons made of seashells, right through to the beautiful Czech glass buttons with intricate designs.

Buttonholes made their first appearance in Germany in the 13th century. Buttonholes became a rage almost immediately, and were nearly universal by the end of the 14th century. Since then, buttons have been a part of every new clothing design, and there’s yet to be a time when clothing hasn’t been graced with these lovely notions.

Things changed once again during the industrial revolution. The majority of buttons were made at home by people using techniques from the cottage industry, up until the end. With the introduction of professional manufacturers and powered machinery, prices dropped significantly. Buttonholes and buttons became inexpensive and easily accessible, so anyone could enjoy them, no matter their social status.

Black glass was the most popular type for button making in the late nineteenth century. This style reminded me of the buttons Queen Victoria wore in honor of Prince Albert’s death. The fashion was popular despite being an act in personal mourning. Soon, almost everyone in high society had a garment with this unique embellishment.

The history of the button has changed once again in the 20th century. Because buttons were easier to obtain than ever, they became a common way of fastening clothes. They were so common that they were a symbol of workers.

However, buttons were never cheap or nasty. They were still a sign of quality, despite being widely used. Top designers still rely heavily upon buttons, and will use them over zips. To indicate that their suits are of higher quality, tailors use matte-horn buttons.
