To Karen or whomever,

I just saw the new collection of L. Erickson headbands and I noticed that the description said that some of the bands are made with vintage Dupioni silk? Is that right? Real Dupioni? Also, are the images what the headbands really look like are they approximations? Any details would be appreciated.

Hi Clarabell,

Oh my would not believe these headbands. It is all I can do not to buy all of them myself. Yes, it is real, genuine Dupioni in vintage patterns. The actual Dupioni (so soft and luxurious) is imported from France but is hand sewn by ladies in a small town outside of Seattle. It takes several weeks to receive an order.

When we received the very first L. Erickson shipment a few months back I was a little skeptical how well the headbands would do because they are a vintage design AND they are more expensive. However, everyone that sees them just gaps. We sold out of the first shipment in a matter of days. And yes, we had one very unpleasant woman say that she could do a better job on her own sewing machine (you know how that goes) but overall I had several people get upset when we ran out. The thing is, once they are gone, there are no more because the materials are vintage.

To make sure I portrayed them as closely as possible to what they look like, I hired a professional photographer (Jean) to come in and take photos of the L. Ericksons so that they would be as close to reality as possible. We were also going to put them in our next catalog BUT we sell out so fast I doubt that can every happen - which is a good thing and a terrible thing. :-)

Thanks for your interest. I can tell you that right now the L. Erickson's are only available at, Henri Bendel in New York and one other small boutique. So they are hard to find.

Best wishes,
