ORNAMENTAL METAL PRESS SNAPS

Our NEW Ornamental Metal Press Snaps are an elegant closure solution for felted garments. Simply sew these strong snaps into position. They lie very flat against the felt and are not bulky at all. A great solution instead of button holes….

Hint: if you don’t want the stitching to be seen on the front-side of your felt, simply don’t push needle through to the other side, just catch enough fibres with your needle/thread to hold snap in place.

To create a  Reversible Garment Closure stitch a snap on both the front and back of each side of your garment. Therefore when your garment is reversed it can be snapped closed either way. An additional bonus being that the front-side would have a decorative snap showing, which could be quite nice.

Colours available include: Antique Brass, Gunmetal, Grey Silver, Hexagonal Gunmetal and Black Gunmetal.  Snaps measure 20-21 mm in diameter. Sold as a set.

NEW COLOURS | MERINO COLOUR HARMONIES | 2018

Early in the new year we always find time to think about  creating NEW Colour Harmonies. We are excited to announce some of our latest creations. Living near the ocean is a continual source of inspiration for Treetops.  Many years ago after our first visit to the Southern Coastline of Western Australia, we created one of our favorite colour harmonies Southern Seas, which represents a slightly moody and more greyed ocean. Today we are presenting the Indian Ocean side of Western Australia with our new Colour Harmony Ningaloo (our World Heritage listed reef) which has a much lighter, brighter and fresher beauty.  Dryandra is our newest earthy colourway named after a rare Banskia species found only in the south west bush of Western Australia.  It’s colours appear as if they have been natural dyed from eucalyptus.

NEW COLOURS | MERINO SOLIDS | 2018

We are excited to announce the beginnings of our NEW range of Solid Colours for 2018! We love to keep on trend with some of the latest fashion colours as well as introduce colours which we are excited by.  So keep checking back, as we will be adding more colours in the next couple of months. Some of these colours will also be added to our other fibres and fabrics ranges. (Dec 2017)

NEW COLOURS | SILK MESH | 2017

Treetops has just expanded our Silk Mesh range to include our incredible versatile black/grey combo called Silverback. Also recently added is Regrowth.  It looks great when paired with Adobe or Burnished Brown. Snowy Owl is also new and a very classic combination of pale-grey and mid-greys moving towards white. We are confident you will find a use for this versatile colourway in your wardrobe.
