Mother of Pearl is not only one of the oldest raw materials for the production of buttons, but is considered the most precious and beautiful. The mother of pearl button is a synonym for high quality, indeed luxury and indication of sophisticated, high quality clothing. The processing and handling of mother-of-pearl requires a very specific Know How and quality awareness, which is essential in order to get the most out of the sensitive raw material. Both mussel shells and snail shells are used as a raw material for mother-of-pearl buttons. From a chemical point of view Perlmutter is 90% lime and 10% water. The different types of mother-of-pearl differ in quality, look, color and suitability for button making.
