OMG! Tying the perfect bow has never been so easy with these easy-on pinup headbands! Now available in the shop in lots of different colours and styles!


Vintage-inspired designs with a modern twist. Handmade in Italy with love.

My motto is "Wear your dreams" as I believe fashion doesn’t have to be someone else’s statement, just ours. Aren’t you tired of shopping off the peg? I am!
Shopping used to be a pretty frustrating matter until the magic of sewing revealed to me… and I fell in love! This is why I founded The Yellow Peg in the first place. It all started with a sewing blog, as everybody deserves the chance to know that making your own clothes is not dark magic, it’s something you can easily learn with a little effort, some patience and a lot of passion. Those are the only ingredients you need!

At the beginning of 2016 I decided to take a step further and start my new adventure as a fashion designer. It was time to pick my clothes off the right peg!
That’s how The Yellow Peg became an online shop too: the place where to find my vintage-inspired clothing and accessories entirely designed and handmade in my studio, in the heart of Verona, Italy. Here, you can play mix&match with customisable creations: you’re the one who decides what best matches who you really are to make fashion your personal statement.

The Yellow Peg is for those who want to shop differently, ethically, responsibly. The Yellow Peg promotes Slow Fashion and wants to spread the culture of wearing handmade. When we buy a handmade garment or accessory, we buy the passion and love of the person who made it, we buy the originality of the idea, the uniqueness of the creation, in other words we buy an actual story. And who ever gets tired of good stories? 😊
