It all started with a hunt for cool buttons for a family wedding in 2014. Founders Arpit Mantri and Mili Gajera wanted cool-looking buttons as an alternative to mass-produced and plain buttons available in the market. From there spun out The Exquisite Co, an endeavour to provide a regal touch to every man’s wardrobe. The buttons and cuff links are handcrafted by artisans in Rajasthan, who for decades have been working for royal families. If you have a family crest or a design that you want to show off on blazers, coats or even sherwanis, we think these are a perfect fit for special occasions.
The metal used in buttons includes brass, copper and even pure silver monochromes. The enamel coating also can be customised to blue, mustard or whatever colour you have in mind. Brass starts from the lower price range and moves higher up if you want pure silver ones. We loved their white and gold handcrafted buttons for their intricate pattern work, all done by hand. Their Rajputana collections with insignias of the erstwhile Rajput kingdoms were also a hit!
