We love the look of horn toggles on a coat, jacket or cardigan. Wool, leather, sweater knits – all look great with the touch of an organic ornament. We’ve just received two toggle styles from Germany.
Carved from natural horn, each one of these toggles has slight variation in size and coloration. Denali has a very clean, classic look.
A more contemporary toggle/button is Talkeetna:
This chunky bit of horn could be used as a button as well as a toggle. We love its curved edges and bit of roughness. Once again, no two are alike, as they are made from natural horn.
Think of the rustic look this would give a hand-knit cardigan! Or, picture it as a single button on a wool jacket. Very organic!
What I’d most like to see these toggles on is a coat of wool, with leather trim. That’s a big trend this fall, and these horn ornaments would complete the look in style. I’m looking at making Vogue 1319 using some of our leather for the trim. This would be the perfect ending!
