After all that fabric of the last two weeks you need something as common as a button to close your outfit. Okay, a zipper could do the trick but you can buy those everywhere. Buttons, and especially artful buttons, can only be bought at a small amount of shops, one of the best known in Amsterdam is De Knopenwinkel [the Button shop].
Lasercut mother-of-pearl, handmade and handpainted ones, buttons made of bone, wood, metal, cristal, you name it and they sell it, as long as it’s a button. Even when you’re looking for buttons from the 30′s to the 90′s.
