The metal parts are produced by cutting out a mold from wax, then taking a rubber cast from it.
Lighter than the brass casts that used to be commonplace, and able to produce more intricate expressions, this method was also used for things like the buttons on knit cardigans and, since the middle of 1900's, has decorated the clothes of working people.
Osaka's Ikuno Ward is near a district of clothing wholesalers, and contains many small neighborhood workshops producing buttons and accessories.
