The Mynabirds Tour Headbands

I recently designed some tour pieces for Laura Burhenn of The Mynabirds.  Read more about that here.  In support of the "Generals" tour, I made some limited edition Mynabirds headbands that are available exclusively at the merch table each night of shows.

These headbands are made out of 100% double knit wool hand-cut chevrons.  They are currently available in Natural and Burnt Yellow.  The elastic is knitted with a scallop edge and plush back.  Some feature metallic gold top stitching--this style is especially limited because the metallic thread is tricky to sew with.  The edges are treated with a sealer to help prevent fraying.  Each headband features a special "Emma Erickson for <3 The Mynabirds" canvas lablel.  They will run you $20.
