About

I started Henry's Buttons in 2009 with the aim to help keep the heritage craft of the Dorset Buttons industry alive and to encourage all those interested in crafts to try their hand at making these lovely thread buttons.
Henry's Buttons is based near Shaftesbury in Dorset. The birth place of the Dorset Button industry in the 1600s.
My Etsy shop specialises in Dorset Buttons and you can find information on the history of the Dorset Button industry and Dorset Button workshops at my website www.henrysbuttons.co.uk. I also take commissions to make these lovely buttons and gives talks on the history of the industry.
