Tic Sweden Fastens Shirt Buttons

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.

  37. Sounds like a cool solution temporarily until you get a new button sorted. I also love the bottle stopper that looks like a gear stick, very funky, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Yes, actually they are permanant, to take the place of sewing a button, it's all in the tic piece, thread and all! Thanks for your comment. :)
