Novelty Buttons

New Creation Industrial Corp Ltd presents a new range of fancy buttons (above) with colourful and eye-catching embossed resin patterns for a hot summer feel.

ONCE the epicentre of a thriving garments manufacturing industry, Hong Kong is now equally adept at delivering high-quality and inventive garment accessories, including a host of novelty buttons.

Founded 11 years ago, Brilliant Metal Button Fty & Co Ltd operates a factory employing 250 workers and producing 50 million buttons per month in Dongguan on the Chinese mainland.

Brilliant's wide range includes locally-designed and tailor-made items like snaps, rivets, grippers, stoppers, buckles and numerous trendy buttons crafted from brass, aluminium, steel and plastic imported from Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.

The company serves worldwide markets and credits design for the broad appeal of its buttons. "These are special items rare in the market. They are very high quality and difficult to source elsewhere," says merchandiser Eva Chu.

Buttons are available from HK$0.18 per gross. Minimum-order value is US$1,500 for shipment 15-45 days after order confirmation.

Five-year-old C&K Metal Mfy Ltd traces its roots to a company called Wing Fung established in 1985. Each month C&K generates 13 million innovative fastenings priced from US$0.42 per dozen sets FOB Hong Kong. The products include buckles, hooks, rings, sliders, pins, studs, nail heads, eyelets, rivets, buttons, metal labels, badges, chains and stoppers to be worn by fashion-conscious consumers in the US, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

C&K responds to the latest market developments and to clients' creative demands by engaging experienced craftsmen to customize distinctive designs. "We listen to customers and work with them to create original designs based on their ideas," says sales manager Kathy Lai.

The company's 60-worker factory in Huizhou on the Chinese mainland uses steel from Taiwan, along with brass and zinc alloys from Japan, Hong Kong and Australia. All nickel-free products comply with international standards.

Minimum orders are for 10,000 buttons or 50,000 rivets for shipment 10-20 days after order confirmation.

Mei Bond Int'l Co, established in 1985, offers a delightful range of novelty buttons and toggles for customers with an affinity for all things tropical and sultry.

Each month, its 200 workers fashion 100,000 gross of these fasteners, turning organic materials like shell, coconut and horn from Indonesia and Fiji into amorphous shapes with beauty derived from the raw materials' natural traits.

Sales executive Cecilia Wong relies on a winning formula to shore up her client base: "We look to fashion magazines and the individual tastes of customers for creative inspiration. Plus we promise punctual delivery, competitive prices and the highest quality."

Costing about HK$1 per piece, the buttons go from a spacious factory in Dongguan to major markets like the US, Taiwan and Europe. Minimum order is 10 gross per size for shipment two weeks after order confirmation.

Founded in 1993, New Creation Industrial Corp Ltd boasts exceptional buttons with a 1960s-style bohemian flair. These are made of environmentally friendly PVC and depict motifs like stars, flowers and insects, as well as the words "peace" and "cool".

New Creation strives to upgrade quality and services. "We research innovations on the technical and design sides. Now we are focused on materials like silicone and PVC, on child-safety standards and on incorporating customers' design ideas," says marketing manager Dove Li.

New Creation has 300 workers at a factory in Panyu on the Chinese mainland. Monthly capacity is 1.5 million items. Minimum order is 5,000 pieces for shipment 20-30 days after order confirmation. Main markets are in Europe.

Eighteen-year-old Winner Button Co Ltd is dexterous in riding fickle waves of fashion while producing accessories for major American brand names like Disney, CK, DKNY and Gap.

Buttons and buckles made from local or imported (South Korea and Taiwan) materials account for 14 million items per month emerging from Winner Button's 180-worker factory in Shenzhen on the Chinese mainland.

"Excellent service and swift production guarantee delivery within 7-10 days, compared to up to one month for competitors," claims manager Wan Yu Wong.

"In addition to high efficiency, we have a market-savvy approach. Fashion trends always change. For example, rhinestones on accessories are popular, so we are expanding our line of rhinestone buttons and buckles," says Wan.
