Hot Button Issues

Ok, granted, these are not the type of issues that will drive the citizenry to protest on the streets (though the photo here does show yellow as well as red ones)…lolx.

But I remember that decades ago, these were high fashion. My long-departed Granny and other senior female relatives were experts in making buttons out of cloth material to adorn their blouses. In fact Granny’s upper garments always had these types only, no others.  The knotted buttons required some dexterous handwork to fabricate.

I almost never see any woman wearing dresses with these now.   I think these buttons are no longer ‘hot’ and have completely gone out of vogue, or perhaps these days women’s fingers can only swipe and tap touchscreens.   Hope I don’t start a riot here.
