Responding to an appeal featured in Country Life Magazine (5th
June 2013), we acquired the last remaining button-making machines and much of the heritage of James Grove & Sons Ltd.
Courtney & Co®. is committed to apply and pass-on the skills of button-making using both traditional methods and technology.
.We source the finest natural raw materials from around the world, offering a variety of buttons to suit our customers’ diverse needs and preferences.
Our dyes are all Oeko-tex standard 100 and AZO free certified, delivering vibrant colours while caring for our environment.
Courtney & Co is reviving button-making in the UK using traditional techniques & new technology, natural & environmentally-friendly materials and heritage patterns in a way that is ecological, ethical and fully sustainable.
From raw materials to finishing media, packaging to dye-stuffs, we respect and preserve the environment and our world for future generations.
We select and source our material needs to identify and understand their provenance and meet our sustainability criteria.
To off-set the carbon emissions created by our global sourcing activities, we donate young trees to community gardens and orchards around the UK.
Whether for environmental, commercial or aesthetic reasons, we wish to help make the world a better place to enjoy and live in.
