low environmental impact during metal buttons production

Production of jeans buttons and press buttons with low environmental impact

Thanks to  the photovoltaic system, Spring ’85 produces 30% of its electricity needs. This means that the company, using solar energy, releases less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere for the production of buttons. Since the photovoltaic plant started to work, 1,081,922 kg of CO2 have not been spread  into the atmosphere.

In addition to the important aspect of carbon dioxide emission reduction, Spring ’85 uses recycled raw materials deriving from previous productive processes. None of the components, whether wastes or production wastes, is thrown away , otherwise ,it is consciously put in a special container for subsequent rework.

Starting from this point,   we are creating  a capsule collection of jeans buttons and rivets with a low environmental impact. We try to reduce the consumption of water to a minimum and we do not use chemical agents for the finishing phases. We are using , though, mainly natural products to give birth to different finishes.

Spring ’85 rewarded at MADE IN PADUA – fashion & design edition

Not only Made in Italy but also Made in Padua, Spring ’85 is proud to have participated in this project promoted by the Padua Chamber of Commerce. This year the Made in Padova project focused on Fashion, the third “F” of Italian Design after Food and Forniture. In fact, fashion is not only a true Paduan excellence, but is above all a strategic factor in ensuring competitiveness for businesses and the area. Starting from the principle that in order to make a territory grow, it is necessary to pass on to the valorisation and promotion of what is created within it, the Padua Chamber of Commerce  has believed in the cultural and promotional value of Made in Padua production for years and therefore supports this publication.

Monday 29 May 2017 at 5.30 pm at Villa Ottoboni, Spring ’85 together with the other 14 companies participating in the project, withdrew the award, rewarding the companies: Andrea Rambaldi, chairman of Sistema Moda Confindustria Padua, Sandro Vecchiato, Executive Component Confindustria Padua and Leonardo Toson, Chairman of the Cooperative Credit Bank of Piove di Sacco.

” Our produtcs are buttons for jeans and outwear, as well as rivets, but we like to call them accessories because their features, finishing, processing and research permit them to be used not only to close garmetns but also to embellish them. Design, planning, research and originality are essential ingretiends. Our clients choose us for our flexibility and quality; this is the only way price becomes secondary! This strategy is not just advantageus because it makes us very busy, especially with ideas. Our clients always expect new suggestions and proposals; therefore I always remind our young collaborators that the difficult task is improving what we are already able to create.” (the founder Carlo Favarato)

bottone laboratorio otto cinque


During these 30 years of experience, Spring 85 has been feeling the need to identify its own style, its own trend and its capacity of production and innovation.
Thus, the Laboratory 85 collection is born in January of 2016, and it offers a range of innovative products, as well as, iconic examples of excellence in accessories craftsmanship. In this way, Spring 85 wants to play an active role as a “proponent and innovator”, always in contact with customers to meet its new ideas and need according the fashions trends.

Moreover, Spring wants to draw the observer’s attention on the authenticity of the work, by enjoying   the new researches shown in this collection. No less important, is the emotional investment we make and which we want to release towards our creations in LABORATORIO ‘85.

Each coming-out will have a selection of buttons and rivets, unique in their kind for form, finish and construction.

Since 2016, the new brand LABORATORIO ’85 is out and signed Spring85!
