Easily-sewed Button

Problem: Sewing buttons is a sort of difficult job in daily life, especially for the elderly and vulnerable groups. Capturing the small buttonhole requires highly attention which makes button-sewing inefficient, consequentially affects people's daily life and the labor efficiency of garment factory.
Creative design: A curved slide is set between the button edge and the buttonhole, in which way the needle could slip into the buttonhole easily. Even the blind is able to find the buttonhole and finish the job by the sense of touch. In this way, the efficiency is much improved. And it's very convenient for people with poor eyesight.
