The Czech based family business DENIMAR TAILORING s.r.o. launches a unique glass cufflinks collection under the YABLOGLASS brand. The company is otherwise known as a men's shirts maker under the brand SmartMen since 2011. The combination of the shirts business and it's location in the home-town of costume jewellery and Bohemian glass buttons making in Jablonec nad Nisou, Czech Republic, gave birth to a unique collection of hand-made glass cufflinks.
The glass and metal connection
The uniqueness of the YABLOGLASS cufflinks is in the material used. The decoration with the Bohemian glass button is made by the traditional and now almost forgotten method of pressing glass bars in furnaces. Patient manual work accompanies the entire production process of pressing, grinding and painting. The glass button is then glued to the gold or silver closure of the shirt cuff. The YABLOGLASS buttons production combines traditional metal and glass jewellery making in the Jablonec region.
Faded glory of the Bohemian glass button
The glass buttons were in the region of Jablonec the main livelihood for local jewellery manufactures and individuals from the middle of the 19th century until the middle of the 20th century. The Jablonec glass button wandered around the world. The painted glass button as part of the clothing accessory has been completely pushed out of the market in the second half of the 20th century by the plastic industrial buttons. Of the hundreds of Bohemian glass button makers, only few individuals – enthusiast continue the business these days.
The Renaissance of the Bohemian glass button
At the beginning of 2017, the first collection of YABLOGLASS glass cufflinks is shown to the world. The designer collection of the glass cufflinks represent only a fraction of the thousands of shapes and designs of the once-produced glass buttons in the Jablonec region. Hundreds of pressing tongs and molds have been lost or destroyed. The art of glass buttons pressing is put in the hands of individuals who have nobody to pass the skill forward.
The YABLOGLASS glass cufflinks low scale hand-made production can be promise for a glass button pressing preservation for the future generations. The unique YABLOGLASS cufflinks in a costume jewellery gift box can be purchased at www.yabloglass.com.
