The Murrays are the family behind Buttonworks Australia. They are a family of makers crafting timber puzzles, homewares and gifts. All of their products are designed and made in their studio on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, Victoria.
With many family and friends overseas, the Murrays found it hard to find authentic Australian made gifts that truly reflected the beautiful and diverse flora and fauna throughout Australia – so they started creating our own.
From making craft buttons in 2001, Buttonworks product range has grown to include tableware, giftware and jewellery. And as their family expanded, children’s puzzles and games were added to the range.
With Liz’s creative background and Mike’s technical abilities, together they have created a product range inspired by Australia. With two of their daughters, Liza and Keli joining the business, Buttonworks grew to be a leading Australian made giftware business. Keli and Liz now work together as the key creatives behind Buttonworks. The mother – daughter design team combine their distinct artistic styles and approaches with technological practices to create a uniquely Australian product range.
Buttonworks chooses to make their products from renewable, sustainable resources. They use a variety of Australian timbers which adds unique character to their products. The timbers are sustainably harvested and genuinely Australian. Buttonworks are proudly Australian made and believe that being Australian made is about supporting a greater network of people - their family, employees, local timber and packaging suppliers, posties, communities and their environment.
Made in Australia.
