A button is a small, usually flat object that you use to keep your clothes shut. Buttons can be made of wood, metal shell or plastic. There is usually some holes through the button or a loop under the button so they can be stitched to your clothes. You fasten a button by passing it through a matching hole.
Fabric frays when it starts to come undone, and starts to turn back into the individual strands it was made from.
A fray is also a battle or fight, and is often used as a turn of phrase when you are about to go into the middle of some activity, eg "he stepped into the fray".
