In 2040, buttons will still continue to support the trousers of hundreds of millions of people, as well as help to fasten shirts, jackets, coats and blouses.
However, the role of buttons in displaying the individuality of each individual will increase. It will become a rule to wear shirts with buttons of different colors, shades and patterns. For example, on the same shirt, the top button can be green, followed by yellow, then blue and so on.
Buttons will become easier to replace. There will be many buttons on the glue base. Part of buttons will be sewn with clips, due to which special button staplers will be widely used.
Some buttons will contain GPS trackers, which will allow tracking the movements of their owners, especially children, when it is dictated by concern for their safety.
The number of individual buttons with the owner’s monogram will increase. All this will enhance the cultural and historical value of some buttons. The number of philobuttonists - button collectors will also increase. Private Banking managers will offer their wealthy clients the services for gathering collections of buttons for investment purposes.
In other words, the importance of buttons in the future will become more noticeable, and their role will become more diverse.
