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.
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!
Hi, I’m Aly! Some of you may know me already from my bookstagram @thelittlelibrarian or even further back on youtube. I’m the Social Media Fablebandit for Fablebands. I absolutely love working with Mylene & interacting with all the amazing people who support Fablebands. I love getting to help with new releases & curating new ideas. My favorite Fableband currently is my Strange the Dreamer headband but I seriously love them all. I’m beyond thrilled to be part of the Fablebands team & can’t wait to see where this takes us!
Here’s a little about my life. I’m a mother to a rambunctious little guy named Dartagnan. I’m married to the man of my dreams & we’ve been together for almost 11 years. 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, & Dystopian books but I’m not afraid to try something new! I’m a major nerd & love all kinds of things like Kpop, anime, video games & so many other things!
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!
