Our Story

Myths, fables, stories; through these we slowly learn about the world.

When I was a young girl, ignorant of what lay ahead, I dreamt about math formulas and calculations, buildings and bridges, and thought, as do so many, that happiness was to be found at the highest point of the one structure I would one day put together.

Fast forward fifteen or so years and here I am. Proud of what I have accomplished, still enamored with the theory of it all and the beauty of physics, but yearning for more: for more bedtime stories, more travel, more experiences, more of this and less of that.

Fablebands is my valiant attempt to break the norm. I dream of days sitting with a cup of coffee, books strewn everywhere, and my sewing machine singing contentedly; of my children playing about me as I weave the story of my life into my latest creation. When I finish every piece, my soul relaxes a little, hoping that one day this path will yield those visions and more. Every purchase of a Fableband brings me a little closer to this promise land, my very own Shangri-La. You are all, essentially, dream weavers.

Because of you, my fable carries on – without animals, save my trusty Maltese Max, but with a thunderous moral: that going confidently in the directions of one’s dreams is the true path to happiness.

Mylene Owner of Fablebands


Hi, I'm Mylene and I'm the owner, founder, seamstress, shipper, accountant, you name it, here at Fablebands.

I founded this little headband shop September 2019 and I love seeing how much you all love Fablebands and how much closer this little corner has brought me to many new friends.

I am Cuban, a full time time mom of two little angels and wife to the best man on Earth!

Accomplishing all my "jobs" on a given day can be overwhelming, but I love each of them and I wouldn't change a thing!

Co-Owner & Social Media Manager


Hi, I’m Aly! I’m the co-owner of Fablebands. I’ve been with Fablebands since the start as a rep and eventually worked my way up to owning part of this incredible small business. Mylene and I make quite the boss babe team, if I do say so myself. Besides being able to call Fablebands partly mine, I handle shipping, curation, sewing, collaborations, photography, and even creating designs (Oat Milk Latte, Rohan, Mordor, and Fair Folk are some of my work).

I love getting to call this my job because I get to stay at home with my two tiny humans. I have a son and a daughter who keep me on my toes constantly and I love being their mommy! They’re homeschooled so you’ll see them on the Fablebands socials occasionally. I’ve been with my very nerdy husband for over 14 years and he’s often the one helping me with photos and delivering packages to the post office.

I’ve been an avid reader since I was fourteen and was handed a copy of Uglies by Scott Westerfeld. I’m a huge fan of Fantasy, Sci-fi, Romance, & Dystopian books but I’m not afraid to try something new! My favorite books include Uglies, The Falconer, The Bone Season, and so many more. I’m a major nerd & love all kinds of things like kpop, gaming of so many varieties, writing, anime, and so much more.

Rebi Creativity Manager Fablebands


Hi, I am Rebi! You might be familiar with me from my bookstagram or tiktok @rebireads! :)
I am the Creativity Fablebandit for Fablebands and I am still quite fangirling over the fact that I can work with Mylene and Aly — my two role models!

As you could guess from the role I do, I love anything that involves creativity, creating aesthetically pleasing end-products, sprinkle some fun on the way and tasks challenging me to think outside of the box! I love dreaming about new and unique fabric patterns and help keeping track of upcoming books I think would make a perfect Fableband.

Besides having too many hobbies, listening to Kpop and daydreaming, I am a mother to a goofy little girl and a happy wife to the most patient, loving husband of the World! I am actually a geologist, so our house is filled with rocks, minerals and books! I have always been a reader, my earliest memory is 7 years old me asking my mom to go to our local library because I need The Secret Garden by F.H. Burnett — the rest is history!
My most read genres are romcom and fantasy! I am obsessed with Little Thieves by Margaret Owen, The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood and Six Crimson Cranes by Elizabeth Lim!

Social Media Manager


Hi, I’m Dani and I’m the Social Media Fablebandit! You might know me from my bookstagram, @daniwantsalibrary or through my art, @danisaur.art. I’ve been a huge fan of Fablebands since 2020, and I’m so excited to be part of the team!

I’m an American expat living in the Netherlands with my husband and our two trash cats (whom I love very much). In a past life, I worked in process development for pharmaceuticals, but now I’m a freelance designer and recently started a BA (Hons) in graphic design. You can see some of my work on It’s Showtime and Little Dreamer, among others!

I’ve been a voracious bookworm since I was able to read. I especially love fantasy, romance, horror, and manga. My favorite book is The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova, but you’ll probably most often find me yelling about The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon. Being able to combine my love of reading with what I do is a dream come true and I can’t wait to see what’s next for Fablebands!
