Local artisan jeweller Tombol's luxurious reimagining of the humble button is the perfect way to elevate your Raya outfits this year

Tombol is your must-have companion this season to complement the excitement of Eid, and to turn a run-of-the-mill wardrobe into something extraordinary. With a focus on quality and a belief that less is more when it comes to elegance, Tombol introduces buttons that catch the eye with minimalist geometric patterns and exquisite craftsmanship, which exude authority through quiet opulence.

Inspired by Malaysia's rich heritage, Tombol presents five unique designs: Bintang, Raja, Kufi, Tuah and Wira. Each are a harmonious blend of smooth curves and symmetry crafted from silver palladium—a lightweight material that distinguishes itself from sterling silver with its tarnish-resistant properties. Sophisticated and affordable, this lustrous silvery-white material surrounds semi-precious stones such as onyx, pink opal, and jasper, to form this season's most exciting, must-have accessory for Malaysian men.
