Piggi International creates luxury hair accessories from authentic designer silk scarves.
The notions of responsible and sustainable fashion, through up-cycling is the foundation of what Piggi is doing. However, being fortunate enough to combine my love of vintage silk scarves, fabrics, accessories, sewing, creating and making is truly a joy and is the heart of what Piggi stands for.

The Scarves I Source
The scarves I source are pre-loved from collections around the world. Each has a story to tell and while I avoid using pieces with obvious scars, some of the scarves have actually had a hard time you name it rips, pen marks, stains, but there is still life left in them when you cut around the flaws and transform them into something beautiful. They are worth saving.
Why you need to own a piece of history...
Apart from being extremely beautiful, I love that there is so much history and a story behind each and every one.
Each Hermès scarf can take up to 18 months to produce from design conception to the creation of hand etched screens and the colour selection, right down to the hand rolled and stitched edges. I try to, where ever possible incorporate this hand stitched hem into each and every scrunchie.
Where are the accessories made?
I expertly handcraft each piece in New South Wales, Australia. Every hair accessory is unique, depending on where it was cut from the scarf. All are limited editions.
I have created the perfect proportioned scrunchie to suit most hair types and ensure that all scrunchies have the essential 'snap back factor' - that satisfying stretch that enables our scrunchies to wrap around the hair firmly but not too tightly!
My headbands all feature a plastic inner which is fairly flexible and not too tight to cause headaches!
Why is Silk Better for your Hair
Once you have used silk you will be back for more. Softer and gentler on your hair, Piggi scrunchies avoid the pulling and splitting that traditional hairbands inflict. Silk doesn't strip the natural oils in your hair and helps to maintain your shiny locks!
Piggi accessories are created from 100% authentic vintage designer scarves and is in no way associated with any of the aforementioned and pictured brands. All registered trademarks remain the property of the respective owners.

Director of all things lovely!
I have always been obsessed with fabrics, I love silk beyond words and I have been a sewer ever since I can remember. So it's my dream job to be able to make my hair accessories from upcycled silk scarves, ties and precious fabrics. It is my mission to craft every handmade piece with the expertise to ensure I do justice to every piece of fabric I use.
Piggi International was one of the original creators of the upcycled Hermès scarf scrunchie back in 2019. Since then I have expanded the collection to headbands, cushions and everything in between!
