Roman Apron Button Vindonissa 2

This roman decorative button with toggle attachment was created after a find from Vindonissa. Diameter about 20mm. The buttons are individually made using the lost wax technique and sanded and polished by hand. They have a plate on the back, with which they can be easily and quickly applied to the leather straps. Suitable for leather up to 4mm thick. Also available as a cheaper raw cast if you want to finsih it by yourself and in a 20-pack. Please select the desired variant in the selection field above.

Studs and buttons were popular decorations, especially for horse harnesses, leather straps and baldrics. The aprons at the early roman military belts were decorated with that kind of studs, also. The soldiers usually did not wear any trousers, and so the apron straps prevented a "deeper look" under the tunic, particularly when seated. When the trouser fashion became popular in the roman army after the late 1st century, the aprons seem to disappear.
