45 tribal dome / stud buttons on a fabric strip.  Dome-shaped stud-type buttons have a loop or shank on the back for stringing or attaching and have been strung on a rolled fabric cord that has been sewn to a fabric strip.  There is a double row of white seed beads along the top edge.  Buttons are in fairly good condition, although one is missing, another has come off of its button shank and there is one that is discolored and dark. These items have been taken from tribal clothing or accessories, bags or animal trappings.  Prestrung buttons can be added to dance costuming vey easily - just sew the entire piece down as it is!

Buttons, like other tribal embellishments are used to adorn almost anything you can imagine, from clothing, personal goods and accessories, to household items and animal trappings. Tribal buttons can be sewn on individually if you just need one or two, or can be sewn in groups or stung on braided cord and sewn into designs or patterns. Vintage buttons have been taken from these old items and repurposed, maybe many times, in their tribal lifetimes.

You will receive the exact pieces shown in the photos on this page. Please check photos carefully for condition. These are USED buttons that have previously adorned tribal clothing, accessories, household goods, animal trappings or other items. They are hand-assembled. These buttons may have small flaws such as shanks being off center, small dents, or the edges may be bent or curled. Please check photos carefully for condition.

A NOTE ON THE CONDITION OF TRIBAL ITEMS: Our tribal components are used pieces from from faraway lands.   As used pieces they may be tarnished or otherwise reflect their prior lives as treasured tribal pieces.   Please know that we strive to maintain the tribal allure of our items and therefore we do not clean or repair these pieces in any way.  This not only maintains the old, tribal look of each piece that our belly dance customers seek, but also preserves the value of a piece that cleaning, and especially polishing, would destroy.

We do our best to describe any flaws that may be present, and we encourage you to read the full description and look at all photos closely to judge the condition of the item for yourself and know exactly what you are ordering.  If you have questions about the condition of any item, please ask!
