Many years ago, a group of dedicated china button collectors created the China Exchange, an online resource to share information about china buttons from the ordinary to the extraordinary. The site now has a new home located at http://www.chinabuttonexchange.com/
Visit the site for news in the china button collecting world, to read about a new calico book in the works, to tour the Bapterosses Factory Museum in Briare, France, to view simply stunning china buttons, to discover a list of reading materials, and to uncover places to shop for china buttons.
Inga Ladd and Thomas Skovronsky have a goal of publishing a new calico book and need high resolution scans of about seventy-two rare calico patterns to make this calico book a reality. Read about The Calico Project for more information and to help.
