Most of the designs are created by the individual artisan who made it, the inspiration their own. This blue-button cluster necklace is long, has an easy hook closure at the back neck, and is quite comfortable to wear.

The Artisanat des Femmes cooperative represents women from low-income families in Khenifra, Morocco, who have joined together to establish self-sufficiency and find markets for their work. Each member learned the craft of traditional button making from their mothers or grandmothers.
