SMART BUTTONS / Button

SMART BUTTONS
SMART BUTTONS

SMART BUTTONS is a new button type which can be used to avoid mis-fastening.This new type of buttons have two different sizes, arraying on every single shirt alternately. In this sense, people can rightly fasten the buttons even in a hurry. It can also be used to “teach” children how to undertake the button-fasten task.

Becase of these two sizes buttons alternately arraying on a shirt, a small button will slip from a big buttonhole while a big button cannot fit into a small buttonhole, which can help people avoid mis-fastening buttons and it can also lead children do the right button-fasten task.
