About Us

We at The ButtonCompany have one simple aim in life.  To give you as many beautiful button options as we can possibly think of.

Hello Everyone

During these rather dark days we aim to continue sales via the internet and by phone.   We are currently down to only one person working on site (because I live there too).  Our colourist and dyer is part of the most vulnerable in society and is currently 'locked away' - thank you Boris for the 80% salary payment.  We have only small stores of everything here so my guess is we will run out of some products whilst we do not have access to our larger warehouse so please be patient with us.  Most important our aim is to keep our staff and families safe and continue to provide what you, our customers need for as long as possible 

I have just moved house (with all the buttons and felt!   Our new address is 40 Green Lane, Chichester PO19 7NP

We pray for the safety of every individual and for our nation to be a stronger and kinder place to live when we come out of the other side .  There is life after COVID-19 and we intend to get there.

Stay well, stay safe and keep in touch

Best wishes



Our plans are to be available from Monday to Thursday from 9.30 - 4.30, although we will attempt to monitor emails and despatch small orders on Fridays.  We are not Amazon and as such every order is picked, checked, addressed etc by hand - please do not expect next day delivery !  We do our best and usually send out 'next working day'

With our traditional base being manufacturing, we know more than our fair share about buttons.  In fact, some of us have been known to worry about what other necessary information we have lost by knowing so much about buttons.  Sad to say, but its true - knowing about button machines, materials, backs, colours, and all the other gazillion things you end up knowing, means inevitably things like your daughter's middle name fall by the wayside.

While many of our buttons were made in-house, its not possible to make all of them.  We have used our expertise to hunt down gorgeous buttons & trimmings for all purposes, from normal dressmaking, to papercrafts, patchwork & jewellery making.

We also wholesale to selected customers - if you are interested, please visit the wholesale section of our site - we wholesale not only our buttons, but  Woolfelt , Oliver & S patterns, JUMBO ric rac and hemingworth machine embroidery threads.

We hope you enjoy browsing our site - if you have any questions or other needs, please call us, we're here to help! 01243 775462
