Incomparable buttons have a wide appeal and are well suited to numerous applications. Due to a unique manufacturing process, the buttons are both machine washable and dry cleanable.* Sew them on with confidence. Each button is carefully hand crafted from a unique mixture of ceramic and stoneware clay and hand painted with an assortment of glazes. The use of natural materials as opposed to plastic, has proven itself to be extremely popular within an increasingly environmentally conscious market.
* The buttons are fully washable; we recommend that the garment is turned inside out prior to washing, and that the normal care is taken in the handling of the item.
About the Company:
Incomparable, SA was started as a small company in 1984 in Johannesburg, South Africa. Working around a kitchen table, often late into the night, Jennifer Pascall was busy transforming small pieces of ground stone & clay into buttons of all shapes and sizes. Many of the first designs, which are still popular today, were inspired by Africa’s rich ethnic artworks, colourful flowers and distinctive wild animals. As the company evolved, ladies from the local community were hired and trained in the art of button making. Most of the Incomparable team had never held a paintbrush before they joined the company and are now absolute masters of their art and justifiably proud of their work. The ladies sense of belonging within the company and skills as crafters not only gives them tremendous pleasure but also provides them with economic empowerment. Many of the team are the sole breadwinner of their family.
