Button Hippo | Red

Buttons destined for the trash are given a new life by Argentinian designers Lucas Campodónico and Rocío González. 

This character-filled hippo made from red buttons set in resin has been lovingly hand-crafted and is unique to the buttons set inside. It is part of a limited edition range of animals.

Based in Buenos Aires, Lucas and Rocío's company Greca collects unwanted buttons to create ornaments, jewellery and homewares and helps create jobs for those in need. At the heart of their creativity is a sustainable work ethic.

Dimensions: 17 cm L, 7 cm H, 6.5 cm W.
