In 1986, Franz Budke decided to found the company „Knopf Budke”. In an environment full of synthetic buttons, the vision has been to offer high quality buttons made out of precious materials and convince with exclusive designs.
For many years, they have been working with passion and managed to develop, alongside the classical shapes, exclusive button designs. Therefore they access high quality raw materials and produce locally. The integration of regional know-how is essential for their purpose and guarantees a high-quality product. Furthermore, fair and human relations with their worldwide partners are a guiding value of the company.
Knopf Budke has reached the market leader position in the button market through their ecological strategy. As the first button manufacturer worldwide, they provide buttons with a GOTS (Global Organic Textil Standard) certificate.
