a warrior day off

Harvey MacKay said

Find something you love to do
and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.

For us that is, at least for the most part of the journey, – very true.
For however long our days are, and however much there is
nothing like Sunday or Monday in the life of a Warrior,
or at least they don’t hold any truth as to being a day off or
the classic first day of the workweek, – we often don’t feel like
we’re working. We feel like we’re living

For our days float into nights where we open up,
be it over drinks or just great food, in a respite that only
brings us closer and where the most of our projects
and ideas come to life under the stars.

That said, a Warrior has to know when
it’s time for rest &, in some cases, – recuperation.
And a true Warrior knows, this too is an art.
It doesn’t matter what name the day has,
or where in the world we currently call home.
It’s all about being all there. 
And granted, some places on earth are
more easy than others to just be.
Let us take you a long for one of our favorite
places like that. Dream beach.
{Yes. That’s the actual name of it.}

Wherever we kick our sandals off, – that’s our home. | LW bracelet w. antique shells : here | + details from LW summer’14

 

 

 And this is why it doesn’t feel like we’re working.
Why instead it feels like we’re living. Because we can’t help but,
in the midst of just being, – meditatively picking shells & stunning shapes
on the beach, until time is erased entirely, – to also be inspired by just that.
And that’s what is then put into our work. The sensation of that day is
threaded on that bracelet, in between the shells & the cotton.
And that’s why it is an art form to have a day off as a Warrior,
the line between work & revitalization is a vague one;
it’s been washed over by the most beautiful of waves,
- & left is only a immersion in the sand, at dream beach.

leaving watermarks

 

 

©HannahLemholtForLoveWarriorsAprilCalendarGirl

 

 

Photo notwithstanding this is not an april fools prank. 
{You gotta be able to smile about things though.}
We’ve realized we, a lil’ bit against our own will, – have to
start putting watermarks on top of the photos
Hannah shoots for us & that we share on this amazing
world wide web. And we thought we wanna
talk to you a little about it..  

It’s not forbidden to print photos & images that you’ve
found online, for private use, and it’s widely spread
today, with so many images floating around,
~ & on top of that; a trend to make your own mood boards
etc from photography & tear sheets from magazines.
It’s not forbidden & to some extent it’s truly a 
compliment that people want to grace their walls
with the work you produce. But.

Because yes, there is a but.
Love Warriors is a company. A company with
real people behind it. People that work hard with
a whole lotta’ love, sweat & tears, literally, – all put in 
with the mission to be long-lived, ~ &  to continually bring
you lovelies inspiration, happiness & beautiful things.

It becomes a problem when you share images 
you’ve downloaded online, you put them up on your walls
and specify Love Warriors or Hannah Lemholt Photography
as the source for the work, even shown in interior magazines.
That’s when the people who want to pay their way
start e-mailing us;
wondering where they can buy those prints 
in this & that size. And that’s when
our time starts being put into the wrong things,
instead of a whole lotta’ love.

There’s even two buts. 
Because after all of that love, sweat & tears
has been put into, in this case, photographs, ~ then
we spend weeks choosing paper and more weeks
in collaboration with our printers to get the
right profile for every photo.
We wanna bring you things with quality,
all the way, you know? Simple as that.

 

We also wanna thank you amazingly
lovely people who continually share the love
with images, tags, comments & links
on instagram and blogs. For sharing with
love, you forever have our hearts.  

Still & always;
with love,

the warriors

jungle sunsets

Here we are, wishing we could bottle up the Bali
sunsets, to bring home for the shop, ~ & you. 
Come to think of it, we’d bottle up the feeling of having
dinner at the beach with ones feet buried in warm; silky sand,
the amazing fresh juices, the genuine kindness of the people,
the sense of freedom & some sunrises too.
{And that’s really narrowing it down.}

Instead we’re aiming at pouring that into the
hand dyed patterns of our kimonos & sundresses,
the intricate bone, ~ & horn work, with little dabs of gold
on the new LW accessories for this summer.
Because these are days we dream about,
when the sunlight paints us gold

 much love from the island of the gods,

holy cow !

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyHolyCowLoveWarriors

 

On each and every Love Warriors treasure hunting trip
there seem to be one of those extra magical places,
ostensibly just opening up behind an old door or, as in this case;
a whole saga behind a sweet little old man.

One of those times where it’s hard to hold back the tears,
~ & the deliriously happy vertigo sets in.
Up and down the stairs we climbed,
only to find more & more beautiful vintage treasures
to bring home. Among many others, we found these stunning
old deer pieces, which kind of had us thinking about
Indian holy cows {and yes, say holy cow !}.
Boldly big & completely boho beautiful with old shell inlays
in intricate patterns. Oh, sigh .. 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyThePottery

 

Our vintage-pots-guy was such a treat this time,
~ the delight of seeing the collaboration of his & our designer’s
hands, bringing about new Love Warriors pieces
in a language of paint & brushes, beyond any other kind
of language barriers. True bliss. Well, she had us at hello 
with her sketches, as usual, ~ pretty enough to print & frame

Busy Bali days. We got to check on the new Love Warriors
scented candles too, before they are shipped out. We’ll be bringing you
two new, handpicked {or shall we say scent-picked} lovely ‘flavours’ in
handmade ceramic jars, one with an octopus & the other, a snake.
Here’s little sneak peek previews carrying the scent of a cobra sliding thru
vetiver grass & sandalwood and the other a scent of kopi luwak, the rarest gourmet coffee
in the world, which we thought needed a touch of tender vanilla
to be held by an octopus, ~ that three hearted stunning animal
just had to be part of the Love Warrior crew..

on mermaids

 

 ©HannahLemholtPhotographyMermaidLife06

 

 

There’s a lot of mermaid inspiration floating around at the moment
{pun indeed intended}.. and we love it. We love it beyond the ‘trend’ of it, if you will.
Don’t you also love it? For the feeling of freedom, of beauty, ~ & of a mythology that connects
many countries around the world.. and that is always a beautiful thing, we think; connection.

Since as far back as 1000 b.c, when the first known mermaid stories are said to have been told;
we’ve been fascinated, ~ & inspired by those legendary creatures.
Those first stories, from Assyria, told people about the goddess Atargatis, who transformed
herself into a mermaid, out of shame for accidentally killing her human lover.
Imagine the big eyes of the children then. Some things are just beautifully eternal.

We happily lent out some details from the series of accessories out of our upcoming LW s/s14 line,
~ to the shoot for swedish brand Fira’s spring & summer ’14 collection, mermaid life, shot back in september.
Featured are e.g. our own favorites; the vintage shell bracelets from Papua, that we told you about before,
~ that can be worn as a regular bracelet; dangling from the wrist,
or pulled up on the arm {staying there perfectly until you pull it down. Papua perfection.}
There’s also a sample we’ve made, a necklace out of bone, the birds of a feather ..
.. & the big necklace, or wall piece; white warrior..

Duo6 
Duo5

 

 

So if a mermaid is one who fights for love.. we wanna be one.
Even if its just in wearing little reminders out of bone, horn or shell. Small reminders
to go with our everyday attire of denim & simple, watery shirts or airy knits.
Come swim with us, lovelies ! And have yourself a beautiful & inspired new week..

with love,

the warriors

We spent some loving warrior time this weekend,
sketching on some more pieces for the warrior wardrobe.
You know we love us some feathers, some shells and some fabric that
goes with denim and a free, light heart & bare {and preferably sandy} feet.
These photographs all says a little about what we’re up to..

 

HannahLemholtPhotographyWarriorWeekend02

 

The LW bones & skulls skull necklace, as you know, is in the shop now,
and the big feathers on my breath feather & shell necklace that we fell in love
with last autumn; we couldn’t help but bring home for you lovely pirates, and it,
along with the rest of the fully loaded ship, ~ will enter the harbor come april.

 

HannahLemholtPhotographyWarriorWeekend03

 

 We love, love, love our own bracelets, or shall we say arm pieces, 
that are vintage from Papua. They use them there as ’engagement rings’ 
and we’ve been using ours with just that kind of passion,
perhaps you’ve seen them; slided way up on the arms of a warrior or two.
We’re happy to say we’ll be bringing some of those beauties home as well,
for the LW s/s14 collection, ~ that’s the one reaching us in april.

.. that goes for the 1st of our pillow cases too,
~ & we can’t wait !
now this all says a little about what we’re up to,
and without being total teasers we can say there’s a whole lot
of other lovely things happening in 2014. .
.. & gosh it’s gonna be one lovely spring !

 

with love,

the warriors

painter’s daughters & pirate’s dreams

 

 

LWSkullNecklace04

HannahLemholtPhotographyLWSkullNecklace05

 

Last time we released this voguish & gypset boho piece,
the bones & skulls skull necklace, ~ you cleaned us out in a matter of hours,
doing the phrase work like a captain, play like a pirate complete justice.

We’re so happy to tell you who got aboard too late,
that we now have had some more of these rock’n’roll beauties made,
~ & they are back in the shop.

It’s our favorite bone carver, a silent poet of craftsmanship,
who makes these stunners for LW.
Each skull is meticulously hand carved out of reclaimed deer horn
and are then forever joined by knots & loops of black cotton.

We love how it takes a simple white tee and denim look to that next level,
or how it can compliment a slick black blazer with some attitude.

We also can’t help but love how it turns heads whenever we wear it.

While we are here, we also wanna tell you
the painter’s daughter kimono will be restocked in early march..
.. another piece that disappeared fast, ~ it seems you are longing for
days of sheer fabric & bare feet just like we are.. lovely pirates!

 

wishing you an inspired & beautiful end to your week.

with love, 

the warriors
