  • Cordoba Tiny Ring Closure
    Quick shop

    Handmade in the United States (in the JUL Studio)

    Genuine Leather

    weight: .5 ounces

    total length - 3.5 inches long

    leather tabs - .5 inches wide

    hardware - 5/8 inches wide inside diameter, 1 inch exterior diameter

    Available in black and espresso, and sand

    The Cordoba Tiny Ring Closure is part of a new series of screw-in leather closures that use a .5 inch wide tab of medium weight (5/6 oz) leather with differing styles of hardware. The Cordoba Tiny Ring uses a spring gate ring, which functions like a carabiner, opening to the inside to release one of the tabs and, in this way, allow the garment or accessory to be taken on and off easily. The Tiny Cordoba Ring Closure is ideal for light-weight knits for which a lighter, more delicate closure is needed. The Tiny Ring weighs a scant half ounce, in contrast to its larger cousin, the Cordoba Ring Closure which weighs 1.5 ounces!

    The Cordoba Tiny Ring Closure, like JUL's other screw-in closures, attaches to knitted, crocheted, and loosely woven pieces using threaded cylinders that slide between fibers to be secured on the back with a washer and a screw.

  • Filigree Honeybee Shawl Stick
    Quick shop

    Handmade Fair Trade in Indonesia

    White Brass

    Stick length: 4 inches

    Total length: 5.25 inches

    Who doesn't love pollinators? This lovely filigree honeybee was a long time in the making.  JUL started working on this design over a year ago.  They began with a realistic design but their wax worker, who was to carve the wax that would become a metal master in the lost-wax casting process, passed on the project saying that the detail was to fine.  Several simpler iterations were similarly rejected.  In a moment of frustration and insight they said - let's just make it in filigree!  JUL's Balinese creative partner, Agus, can do filigree designs in his sleep.  Filigree is a conventional Balinese visual language that Agus has so deeply internalized that it is virtually effortless for him to come up with beautiful swirling designs and delicate lines.  We are delighted with the results and we think you will be too.

  • Leather Pedestal Buttons
    Quick shop

    Made and assembled in the USA

    100% Genuine leather

    Pedestal Buttons are improvisational.  These closures require no commitment, no sewing, and no pre-planning.  Instead, they are flexible components that can transform knitted garments and accessories.  To use Pedestal Buttons, unscrew the leather backing and remove the back disk from the shank.  Holding the front disk (on the screw mechanism shank), work the shank gently in between the stitches of your knitwear from the front.  Place the back disk of leather, smooth side out, over the screw shank on the inside of the knitwear.  Screw in the backing with your fingers to secure. For semi-permanent attachment and to avoid losing screws or backings, place a tiny drop of clear nail polish in the threaded cylinder before securing.  This will keep the closure in place while it's on the body but still allows you to unscrew it when you are ready for a change.

    These innovative screw-in "buttons" can be used not only as substitutes for conventional buttons, they may also be used to create shaping, to attach one knitted piece to another, and to baste knitted fabric so that it stays in place semi-permanently.  Be creative.

  • Lock Toggle Leather Closure
    Quick shop

    Made in the USA

    Genuine leather

    2.25" wide x 1.75" tall

    Sold individually

    This leather closure screws into knitted, crocheted, handwoven, and sewn garments making it removeable for laundering and a striking alternative to conventional toggles, buttons, and frogs.  The leather makes the closure relatively light considering the size of the Lock and its sibling screw-in snap closures. The tongue on one side of the Lock comes up through the slot in the other side, doubles back on itself and 'locks' in place with a snap, making it extremely secure.

    The Lock is equally stunning on the flounces of a coat or amidst the cables of a men's cardigan.  It's fabulous on accessories.

  • Minimalist Asymmetrical Hinge Closure
    Quick shop
    The Minimalist closures is sleek and uncluttered.  All of the functional infrastructure - the snaps, the screws - are hidden inside the closure so that you have the same moveable, removeable, flexible characteristics you have come to love about JUL leather closures without the glitter of metal.  These closures wrap around the knitwear creating two secure options for symmetrical garments requiring a 1 inch overlap in the front, as well as for asymmetrical garments where you want to be able to layer one edge over an expanse of fabric in a garment or accessory.

  • Mod Loop Leather Closure
    Quick shop
    Genuine leather, Screw-in closure with snaps

    4" wide x 1.75" tall

    Make the fantastic possible with your garments and accessories everyday by using the Mod Loop in myriad ways. The Mod Loop, like other JUL screw-in snap closures, screws directly into the garment, the threaded cylinder positioned between stitches with a backing on it on the wrong side of the fabric and a screw securing the Mod Loop on the front and the backing disk on the back. The 'tongue' of the closure snaps onto itself after it comes up through the Mod Loop. The Lock Toggle represents a similar concept in a smaller scale.

    Paisley Bridge Closure

    $58.99

    Made in the USA

    Lead Free Pewter

    3.25" wide x 1.5" tall

    The Paisley Bridge is part of JUL's line of screw in closures that may be attached to knitted, crocheted, and some woven garments without pre-planning as the screws used in the Bridge Closure go between stitches / loops / warp & weft, held in place by backing disks.  

    To use the Paisley Bridge, unscrew the screw from the threaded cylinder and remove the back disk from the shank. With the threaded cylinder held in the Paisley Bridge, work the shank gently in between the stitches of your garment or accessory from the front.  Place the back disk over the cylinder shank on the back side of the piece.  Screw in the screw with your fingers to secure. For semi-permanent attachment and to avoid losing screws or backings, place a tiny drop of clear nail polish in the threaded cylinder before securing.  This will keep the closure in place while it's on the body but still allows you to unscrew it when you are ready for a change.

    The Paisley Bridge is ideal for garments and accessories you don't intend to take on and off often, or for pieces which can be taken on and off by going over your head.
