"Buttons are feeling transporters, they're the ferrymen from the inside to the outside of yourself," says the eponymous owner of Paul Knopf. Paul is button-mad: he has been collecting and selling them from a young age, and now owns the only store in town completely dedicated to them.
He's an expert on button history, button design, button-making and even button philosophy. To Paul, "the small is in the big and the big is in the small" - he believes that even the tiniest of buttons can make all the difference, a conviction supported by the fact that his cozy Kreuzberg store carries an incredible range of them. Paul will even assist those wishing to design and manufacture their own perfect button.
