Inspired by the Chinese knots, we developed a collection including accessories which make by traditional handmade Chinese knot buttons. The history of knot buttons began in the Zhou Dynasty. Handmade knot buttons have become exquisite artworks and have tremendous aesthetic value. Knot has a double meaning, in Chinese, the character 結 mean integrating, linking, the extension meaning is getting married.
We want to carry the demand of such craftsmanship so that the sheltered workers can make use of their own skills to support their living. Meanwhile inheriting the traditional Chinese techniques.
