Peter Hodgson works with horn, using the traditional handcraft skills passed down through generations. Horn is not easily affected by acids, oils or vinegars, does not stain or carry taste. Its exquisitely varied markings and increasing rarity make it a truly delightful material. 

Horn, though light, is strong, durable and easily washed in lukewarm water.

Avoid hot water and detergents. Handwash in cold or lukewarm water only. If you wash your buttons in a washing machine they will fade, lose their shine, become brittle and disintegrate.   

Made from Cow horn using machinery and heat to manipulate the material. Pollished using pollishing compounds. 

Please note  : Beacause the buttons are handmade and the material used varies in colour, the units will differ in colour, (sometimes vastly) and in shape and size (only slightly). The Exquisitely varied markings of horn and increasing rarity make it a truly delightful material.
