Pairing button / magnetic cloth button

Pairing button

Have you ever had the experience of hurrying on to do all the shirt’s buttons up to find out that the first is wrong? Have you ever thought that people with clumsy hands such as the blind, the kids and the older may have difficulties while doing up buttons? Visually impaired people also expect to put on tidy
and fashionable clothes all on their own.
This is a good design to solve this problem: Magnetic button (or we can call it pairing button), which utilizes the law of
magnets to help remind the order of the buttons and do up with magnetic forces, avoid doing up buttons in the wrong way and difficulties to do them up.
