In ancient Rome, the first buttons were used for decorations, but the pins were used for clothes. In the 13th century, buttons functioned just as they do today. At that time, people already knew how to open buttonholes on clothes, which greatly increased the practical value of buttons. In the 16th century, buttons became popular.

 

Who invented the button?

 

Buttons are clothing items that humans often accompany. It has been used for more than 6,000 years. As early as 4000 years ago, the ancestors of Iran, the Persians, had made buttons from stones. China's Zhou Dynasty has begun to use the shirt under the clothes system. Both men and women are wearing two pieces of clothes under their shirts. There are officials who are in charge of making dresses. Civil and military officials must wear dresses for the ceremony. At that time, the use of clothing was relatively standardized, and the clothing system was quite complete. The word "new" appeared in the "Chou Li", "Book of Rites" and other books reflecting the etiquette of the Zhou Dynasty in the Zhou Dynasty. "New" is a knot that is intertwined, that is, a knot. According to my collection of Western Yin Dynasty copper buttons and archeological discoveries in China, the buttons were used during the Spring and Autumn Period and the Warring States Period. The cultural relics of the Warring States Period unearthed from the Shizhai Mountains in Jinning, Yunnan, have been made of blue, apple green, and light gray turquoise with round, oval, animal head, and irregularly shaped buttons. Each has one or two small holes. Some engraved patterns, unique shapes, bright and colorful, with a beautiful waxy gloss. In the collection of buttons currently in use, simple buttons made of small stones, shellfish, animal horns, walnuts, and coconut shells are still used. This shows that during the Zhou Dynasty, the Spring and Autumn and the Warring States Periods, our Chinese people used buttons. In the middle of the Tumulus period unearthed in Japan, the pattern displayed on the wheel made of human figures shows that men's clothing is composed of clothes and skirts, and the clothes are narrow-sleeved tops. It can be seen that the Japanese had used buttons before the Tumulus Period.

 

In the 16th century, the Chinese passed the button to Europe. At that time, it was only used by men and few female users. Most people only used it as clothing. In order to show their wealth, some dignitaries used precious materials such as precious gold and silver, pearls, gems, diamonds, rhino horns, antelope horns, and ivory to make buttons for use. In France, King Louis XIV recorded that 13,000 precious buttons were used to make a royal robe. In my current collection, I use precious buttons made of precious horns, antelope horns, ivory, gold and silver precious materials.

 

Why are the buttons for men on the right and women on the left?

Because modern clothing is based on Western clothing. Westerners generally wear shirts and suits, and the buttons on the right are in line with the posture of human buttons. A few years ago, in the West, ladies usually did not button themselves. Maid buttons worn by waitresses were usually used by ladies. For the convenience of maid buttons, the buttons for women's clothing are opposite to those for men.

 

The meaning of the second button

This is a legend from Japan. The second button is the best gift for a couple. The second button, above the heart, is for the person to whom the heart belongs. That is to give to the favorite person. Because the second button is biased toward the heart, the second button is relatively representative of the heart!

 

Classification and development of buttons

The button is the tie on the clothes for the two sides of the placket. The original role was to connect the placket of clothes, and now it has gradually developed to be more artistic and decorative, that is, personalized, in addition to maintaining its original function. Good buttons can make your clothing more perfect, play the role of "finish the finishing touch", and play a certain aesthetic role. Especially now there are many colorful decorative buttons on women's clothing. In detail: the button that connects the breasts of the clothes is the button, that is, the buttons we often say are the buttons that are not connected, such as windbreaker belts, but we are used to combining the two into one, collectively called buttons.
