HANDMADE FURLING BUTTONS

Raw horn material is planed into workable plates. The strongest pieces are selected to be shaped by hand into 24.ligne buttons. Button holes are then drilled before the Lockwood logo is laser etched. [insert pic of plates?]
Four progressively finer grades of sanding prepare the button before it is polished, this process enhances the character and colour or each unique piece of horn as well as protecting the button from the elements.  [insert pics of button making / different finsihed buttons]
