Our Products

Natural products

All our shell comes from unprotected species, sourced from the Pacific Basin, where stringent safeguards are in place to protect and conserve the shells and support those who harvest them.

Mother of Pearl shell

We can supply a variety of styles of buttons made from this beautiful shell. We offer a wide range of sizes from 14’ to 44’ and can dye and smoke the buttons. Smoked products will come from the yellower part of the shell, saving the highest quality white shell for white or pale buttons.
