Buttons - In clothing and fashion design, a button is a small disc, typically round, object usually attached to an article of clothing in order to secure an opening, or for ornamentation. Functional buttons work by slipping the button through a fabric or thread loop, or by sliding the button through a reinforced slit called a buttonhole.
Buttons may be manufactured from an extremely wide range of materials, including natural materials such as antler, bone, horn, ivory, shell, vegetable ivory, and wood; or synthetics such as celluloid, glass, metal, bakelite and plastic.
Hard plastic is by far the most common material for newly manufactured buttons; the other materials tend to occur only in premium apparel.
There exists a phobia of buttons, called koumpounophobia.
Sometimes, buttons get lost or broken and we don't bother to fix or replace them and the garment is not worn again.....put aside for a time when we choose to mend it. Some people never completely heal or find closure after loss and they go around with a part of their hearts not mended due to their deep sorrow.
I wish for those people to find peace and closure through love, light and the joy of living. May they reach out to others in their time of despair and may they allow others to help them through it.
