Trocus shell or Trochus or mother of pearl is a naturally sustainable eco – friendly product that is grown responsibly from marine molluscs, such as oysters and mussels. Often the shells are discarded during the food production process but thanks to an increasing interest in bio-diversity and a move away from plastics shell buttons are once again growing in popularity.
Designers and tailors have often used these buttons for their luxurious creamy white colour which is tonal to most fabric colours. These shell buttons have a green markings on the reverse but these are often pink as well.
