Roz came to the United States from Iran as a college student in order to study engineering.  Through a stroke of fate, he fell into the art of button making and is now one of the top button designers, with Broadway production and the Metropolitan Opera House among his clientele. His shop is worth a visit, if only to gaze in awe at the walls of buttons in all shapes and sizes.
