Why We Love Corozo Buttons

Lacson Ravello is committed to making a positive impact on our planet every day through sustainable fashion. With that in mind, we’ve made the switch from using shell and metal buttons to Corozo buttons. What does that mean? Well, these buttons are made from Tagua nuts which means they’re a 100% natural and renewable product.  Also known as “vegetable ivory”, this trim adds a rich, natural touch to garments.

Here are a few more reasons to love Corozo buttons:

  1. Natural Harvesting
    Corozo seeds can be collected only after they fall naturally from the tree which means natural harvesting is the only option.
  2. Renewable Resource
    The production of these buttons does not require the cutting down of trees. That means there is no need for deforestation.
  3. Durable Material
    Corozo have excellent durability and a resistance to scratches.
  4. Natural Material
    Unlike plastic buttons, Corozo buttons will eventually biodegrade, thus helping to reduce the amount of plastic waste in the oceans and landfills.

So now you know why we’re nuts about Corozo. By choosing to support our small, independent business, you’re making better and informed decisions that affect our planet. Look at the buttons on your garments the next time you put them on and see if you can figure out what they’re made of. You might be surprised!
