Our buttons are made from Corozo and manufactured by a small supplier in Guangzhou, China. They have been audited by SVG for working conditions, energy saving and emissions reductions. Corozo or Tagua (Ta-goo-ah) is a nut from a tropical palm tree. The palm tree does not need to be destroyed in order to obtain the nut and the finished corozo button is 100% biodegradable. We use undyed corozo buttons.
