About

Hand-sewn items for busy parents

Hello! My name is Asako. In my previous chapters of life (i.e. pre-children), I was a litigation attorney in California. After meeting my partner Mark and moving to Australia, I attended Le Cordon Bleu in Sydney and became trained as a chef. Working in Sydney's fine restaurants as a pastry chef was great fun, but when the children came, the long hours in restaurants became rather unrealistic.

I started Piggledee in 2011, when my youngest was nearly one. I had been sewing for years as a hobby, so it was super exciting to start my own sewing business! I particularly enjoy designing new products that would be useful for busy parents (backpack-convertible nappy bag is by far my favourite creation). I also love Japanese fabrics that I source from my home country, sometimes with the help of my mother who visits Japan often.

Two months ago, Mark and I sold our house in Sydney and moved to a quiet semi-rural area called the Blue Mountains. We love our new, quieter, slower life here, surrounded in a beautiful, inspiring natural setting. It also has a large studio space for Piggledee.

Recently, Piggledee has become so busy that Mark has now joined the "team." He mostly helps with photo editing and fabric cutting. He hopes to learn how to sew in the future! It's a lot of fun working with him during the day when the kids are at school.
