The aviator jacket

Originally, the aviator jacket was a piece of military uniform associated with the pilots of the Second World War, first made of leatherthen cotton, and then nylon. The main referenced models of aviator jackets were notably worn by American bombardier pilots. 

Different types of jackets subsequently appeared, the A2 model being the most famouscreated in 1931 for members of the United States Army Air Corps, and made popular after the war by Hollywood actors and pin-ups.

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 carvedturned 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 makejewellery and objects were the Quechuas Indians.

The sailors also worked the corozo and made small boxes and snuff boxes 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 beganto make buttons and small ornamental objects such as thimbles and jewellery.
