  • Bronze Age

    A major historical period in the history of humankind in which man became conscious of the distinctive signs he was able to produce. This era that heralded the birth of accessories, arms of war first appeared and warriors first adorned themselves with regalia and bronze finery.

  • Buttons

    After using iron-mail (a metal staple that held two parts of a garment together) or never-ending stitches that were sewn and then unpicked each time an item of clothing was worn, rows of button finally appeared in the 14th century closing the arm of a shirt from elbow to cuff. Little by little, the button became an element of distinction (for women of the Court and on Navy and Army uniforms) before becoming a truly elaborate fashion object. The first mother-of-pearl buttons flourish in the 19th century appearing on the front section of Romantic shirts. 

  • Berries (straw-, and rasp-,)

    As well as sweets, these are the other treats found in the workshop. Their presence, however, presents a sizable problem: they can stain a shirt rendering it unwearable, which compromises wearing cufflinks. 

  • Bicycle

    The cufflink’s first means of transport; deflating in every sense of the term.
