We manufacture buttons and buttonholes
D.M.Buttonholes has been established in the heart of London's Soho for nearly 100 years. We provide a comprehensive buttonholing service and we manufacture and supply quality covered button in various styles and sizes. You provide the fabric and we make the buttons.
DM Buttons provided a reliable and efficient button matching and covering service. I sent them a piece of fabric and my one remaining button from a skirt and within a week I had received 6 perfectly covered matching buttons.
I would highly recommend their professional service to anyone needing covered buttons for garments they are making, or need matching buttons for. I will definitely use them again if the need arises.
We also manufacture and supply covered cufflinks in four different styles.
Additionally we supply a wide range of ancillary items for tailoring and dressmaking, including horn buttons in various styles, invisible bridal zips, cottons, Rigilene®, press studs and eyelets. We also offer a press stud repair service. Please see our products page for a more complete list of our products and services.
I wanted to say how delighted I was with my buttons and indeed the service.
I sent my order by first class post on Thursday this week and recieved my buttons the following Saturday. First class service and first class buttons. I shall have no hesitation in recommending your company to all.
Our clients come from all over the world and include top fashion designers, couturiers and leading design colleges, like the London College of Fashion, as well as the general public.
Nobody ever thinks of buttons unless they come off. But I can tell you there's a whole technology that exists around buttons and buttonholes. I guess most people imagine that tailors know all there is to know about buttons, but it's far from the case. When I need some special button feature, I pop along to the trade's best-known button specialist in the centre of London's Soho: DM Buttons (and, just as important: DM Buttonholes).
Once upon a time Soho was home to many specialist trades but it's more than likely that DM Buttons is one of the few survivors, trading out of the same building it was established in nearly 100 years ago. It's also likely that its longevity is due to its proximity to the West End theatres, since a large part of the specialist button demands come from theatre and film costumiers, where not only do the smallest costume details have to look right, they also have to survive huge amounts of wear and tear. A button coming off just before you leave for the airport is one thing; if it comes off during a theatre quick change it could wreck a performance.
