The work 
jacket

Uniform of the craftsman, the work jacket has over the years become the symbol of the workers. Worn since the 19th century by painters, stonemasons and mechanics, the work jacket and its emblematic blue colour have followed the evolution of industrialisation and have since been widely worn in factories.

Usually made of moleskin (a sturdy cotton fabric) or velvet, characterized by two rectangular patch pockets without flaps and a chest pocket on the left side, the work jacket is short to help with manual work. Also called Coltin because of its knight's collar, the work jacket has 5 sturdy buttons on the front and one button on each sleeve.

The corozo buttons



Spanish term for vegetable ivory, corozo or tagua is the inner pulpit of the ivory palm fruit - called albumen - native to the Amazon rainforest. It can be carved, turned and polished as easily as ivory.

The discovery of the corozo dates back to 1798 when Spanish explorers Hipólito Ruiz López and José Antonio Pavón set out to explore the Peruvian jungle in the upper Amazon. They discovered that the first to use the palm tree to make jewellery and objects were the Quechuas Indians.

The sailors also worked the corozo and made small boxes and snuffboxes out of it. In 1865, a steamboat left Esmeraldas in Ecuador for Hamburg and took on board a cargo of tagua. The Germans then discovered vegetable ivory and began to make buttons and small ornamental objects such as thimbles and jewellery.
