Buttonworks Australia is a family business owned and operated by Liz and Mike Murray, who began making wooden craft buttons in 2001. As our product range grew so did Buttonworks and 2 of Liz and Mike's daughter's, Keli and Liza, have since joined the business.
Our product range developed from a love of Australian timbers, to include souvenirs, gifts and jewellery featuring natural and urban icons, native flowers, birds and animals.
With a focus on sustainability, our products are designed to be compact, lightweight and safe to send overseas. All of our design, manufacturing and assembly is done in our studio across the bay from Melbourne, on the Mornington Peninsula.
Our registration with the Australian Made Campaign allows for each of our products to carry the Australian Made logo. We use several Australian timbers to make our products, these include Mountain Ash, Jarrah, Blackwood and Myrtle.
As a timber craft business, it is crucial to us to uphold the integrity of the materials we use. Each tree is different, our products reflect this.
You can read more about our products and business on our FAQ's page.
The real work has been done by the tree, Buttonworks has added the craft work.
We invite you to enjoy our range and share our passion for the Australian wildlife, landscapes and icons.
