Eco fashion is going a bit nuts at the moment, isn't it? But living sustainably is often about attention to detail, and good old Howies are a great example of how to get this right with their new nut buttons. As well as giving an outfit that stylish and unusual twist, the buttons won't melt or break.
The ethical fashion label recently ditched plastic buttons in a bid to further reduce its garments' production emissions. It took designers a while to find a practical alternative, until they discovered some buttons made from the Tagua nut, which grows on palm trees in South America. Another sustainable material that makes great accessories is coconut, and you can wear it on your body with many of the adornments sold by Tribu. They sell some fantastic coconut earrings for just a fiver at their online store.
Howies has already used the Tagua nut buttons on some of its women's trousers, and on sine men's and women's jackets. Howies plans to use the 100% natural buttons again next season.
