buttons

To us at Harlequin, a button is much more than "a fastener which secures two pieces of fabric together" - a button is an opportunity
to enhance, to embellish and to express your true self.

Whether you are completing a garment and want the buttons to match or you are customising an outfit with your unique signature, a fabric covered button is the attention to detail that shows you have cosidered what you wear.

Couturiers always seek out the very best finishing touches for their creations and when it comes to fabric covered buttons, they come to Harlequin.

The process for making couture-quality covered buttons is highly complex, involving heavy industrial equipment and over 45 years of experience - so beware of inferior products!

Our range of buttons is huge with something for every situation. Check out our new range of covered press studs, the latest word in high fashion an our eyelet buttons which are extremely popular.

button sizes

Button sizes are given in lignes - pronounced "lines" - and denoted by three apostrophed (e.g. 40''' is 40 lignes).

There are forty lignes to an inch (40''' = 1" = 25.4mm). See the chart below to choose your button size.

Obviously differing fabric thickness means that this can never be an entirely precise measurement.
