Why Cindy Long chose woodbuttons.com as her source for beautiful wood buttons!

Buttonwood Corp. (aka woodbuttons.com) has been a family business in continuous operation since 1939. Steven and Dennis Hoffman’s dad and two brothers started a small manufacturing firm to create unique wooden apparel trim in NYC’s fabled garment center. Steven and Dennis joined the company in the 1970s and brought fresh ideas like laminated wood, tagua nut (corozo), and bead accessories to an already solid line-up of buttons, toggles, and buckles. Today they work with their lumber mills here in the USA to certify the wood used is plant-friendly. They have implemented the “Cut Two / Plant Three” method of harvesting timber to ensure their supply resource is sustainable and will be available for hundreds of years to come.
