Very Australian Buttons


I can’t imagine they would wash well!

Settlers & Co were a furniture/homewears outlet in Melbourne from 1987 until 2018.

Barramundi Leather Button








According to Wikipedia, Barramundi is a loanword from a Koori (Australian aboriginal) language from the Rockhampton region meaning “large-scaled river fish”. It has been applied for marketing purposes to  fish also known as the Asian or Australian seabass, although that was not the original fish of that name.
