Symbol meaning

The button is a symbol of connection, opening, closing, solution and balance. Just as the buttons fasten the pieces of Tekstil to each other, they also symbolize our need to connect with other people, nature and the whole surrounding world. Since buttons are found in most of the clothes we wear, they also symbolize the power we have over ourselves, our minds and our bodies. Buttons also limit us from others. Do we want to open or close ourselves? They remind us that we have the opportunity to free ourselves from the burden of our past and move forward. Buttons represent our ability to control our own emotions and the things that happen around us. Most of the buttons are in the shape of a circle, which again can be seen as a metaphor for repetition, cycle and routines.
