Hello, we are the Murrays, the family behind Buttonworks Australia. We are a family of makers crafting timber puzzles, homewares and gifts. All our products are designed and made by us in our studio on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula in Victoria.
With many family and friends overseas, we found it hard to find authentic Australian made gifts that truly reflected the beautiful & diverse flora and fauna throughout Australia – so we started creating our own.
From making craft buttons in 2001 our product range has grown to include tableware , giftware and jewellery. And as our family expanded, children’s puzzles and games were added to our range.
Buttonworks chooses to make our products from a renewable, sustainable resource. We use a variety of Australian timbers which adds unique character to our products. Our timbers are sustainably harvested and genuinely Australian. We are proudly Australian Made and believe that being Australian Made is about supporting a greater network of people. Our family, our employees, our local timber and packaging suppliers, our posties, our communities and our environment. We’re all just a piece in this puzzle.
You can read more about our products and business on our FAQ's page.
With Liz’s creative background and Mike’s technical abilities, together they have created a product range inspired by Australia. With two of their daughters, Liza and Keli joining the business, Buttonworks grew to be a leading Australian made giftware business.
Keli and Liz now work together as the key creatives behind Buttonworks. The mother – daughter design team combine their distinct artistic styles and approaches with technological practices to create a uniquely Australian product range.
