I am both happy and sad to say that Lysande's (pronounced "liss-ONDH") Limited Edition "Akumal" fabric is my favorite fabric ever. Happy because, come on, it's my favorite fabric ever! And sad because it's all down hill from here! Womp womp. I mean, not really. I only choose stunning, high quality fabrics to work with *hair flip*, but there's something about the "Akumal" weave that has my heart. If you follow me on Instagram, @shoplysande, you've read my bold claims that this fabric works on almost every complexion and with every hair color. (I will qualify this to say that I actually have not photographed any blondes in the "Akumal" plaid.) While it is a bright, bold pattern from close up, the colors blend into a more muted red/brown from afar, making it my go-to Lysande piece for every occasion. Bonus? The colors are great for the fall season, making it perfect for my upcoming trips to apple orchards. *insert bad dancing!*
A Labor Day weekend trip to Greenwich's Island Beach turned out to be the perfect place for a photo shoot with Lysande's "Akumal" wire-framed headband as summer winds down.
Lysande's Limited Edition "Akumal" fabric is available as a wire-framed headband and a wire-framed bandana. It is a cotton weave, pre-washed and pre-shrunk. Both the headband and bandana are machine washable in a delicates bag. Lay them flat to dry. Click the images below to be redirected to the product pages.
