It's such a delight to partner and collaborate with Tic Sweden (Tic Sverige AB), the Gothenburg-based company behind the brilliant no-sew button fastener. The brand created the patented product tic®, which allows anyone ... that's right, anyone, to permanently fasten a button on their shirt. Male or female, whether you need a two-hole button or four-hole button sewn, don't fret fashionistas! You needn't worry about having sewing skills at all to use this item!

It's a fine quick-fix solution, and an even better backup plan to keep handy in your briefcase, handbag, or in your travelling case. Watch the video below to see Tic® in action.
