Asako Sakai's Profile
Hello, and welcome to my shop! My name is Asako, and I live in Sydney, Australia, with my partner, our two children (3 and 5 years), and a chicken. In my pre-motherhood life I was a chef, and before that a lawyer in California. I grew up in Japan, but lived for many years in the United States and Australia.
I was a crafty girl growing up, but had given up on crafting when I thought -- mistakenly! -- getting better grades at school or having a career left no time for crafting. But eventually I came back to the love of making things, and after having two children, became addicted to making things for children. In early 2011 I started Piggledee. I can honestly say this is the best job I've ever had.
Right now I work mainly with imported Japanese fabrics. Not only are they irresistibly cute, they give me an emotional connection to the country...
