The Indus Valley Civilization is credited with the invention of the button and the earliest one we have in existence today dates from around 2000BCE and is made from a curved shell. The first buttons were used as ornamental embellishments to a person’s attire and signified wealth or status. They had small holes drilled into their surfaces and were attached to clothing by thread, often forming geometric patterns rather than the straight lines we know today. As the centuries progressed, the button became used more and more as a fastener for clothes, with the ancient Romans using them to fix clothing in place with pins. However, it would be a long time before the invention of the buttonhole and the fully-functional button we know and love today.
The Black Button Silver Cufflinks were inspired from the evolution of buttons as an embellishment and to revolutionize clothing. With its stunningly-simple but elegant design makes it even more incomparable than the others. Be the best looking among the rest with this spectacular piece from OTAA.
