Following the already amazing response on the new LW photo art calendar for 2015,
over on instagram & the massive amount of e-mails with wishes to pre order,
we’re here to tip you off to sign up for love letters here on our site
{that way you receive a heads up just before launches on things in high demand, like this.},
– and to show you some more glimpses of the calendar.

Above is the photo meraki,
which represents november and also says it all about this project;
combining the hand & pen of warrior and illustrator Sara N. Bergman
with another fellow warrior, – & photographer – Hannah Lemholt.
We’ve all put our soul, creativity and love into this project
and we are s o happy about the outcome, – & your love for it.

When we read things like ’Please Santa..
&
This years must have christmas gift
our skin tingle {!} and we feel truly happy; imagining this,
our work, being packed up in various rooms, in the glittering light of
various christmas trees and making people feel things.
There’s not many rewards like it in the world..

This year the calendar is made up of 12 folded, big fine art sheets,
each front with a greeting for every month, and each spread then with
dates and its belonging photograph, – to either be placed on your
desk or wall as is; with the calendar to make notes on,
or to cut out the photographs and easily make it ‘just’ photo art,
no matter the month or day or even year ..

Stay tuned over on instagram, if you for some reason just don’t like love letters.
{Ours, we swear, – are however only sent out when there’s a special occasion
and we never, ever, stalk people with spam. Just sayin’.} These babies
are looking like they’re gonna get legs and r u s h out the LW showroom.
We can’t say we’re not over the moon about it,
& we just can’t wait either; to see how you hang and use yours..

with Love,

the Warriors

calendar making season

As we whispered about over on instagram yesterday,
it’s that time again..
As the end of one year is drawing closer,
the promise of a new one lies in the middle distance.
It feels like we’re all glancing at it, together, 
not really knowing,
however much we think we can plan things.

We can aspire though.
And that pretty much sums up what the
LW fine art calendar 2015 is about.
We wanted to repeat, to you, watchwords like
integrity, strength, personality, kindness,
creativity, empathy, affinity, honesty, hope,
~ & a little bit of mischief 
every new month of the new year.

Warrior & illustrator Sara N’ Bergman has hand painted 
with her magic hand and in chalk & japanese ink
she has adorned the photography of Hannah Lemholt,
with some of their common favorite words by inspiring people
{all to be found credited in the index of the calendar prints}.

As we speak the printing process is in full swing, 
and we’ve had reports of tears of joy from the printing room floor.
Now it’s all about packaging and getting it into the store.
Then it’s all about getting it out to you.
And finally it’s all about finishing it beautifully,
~ & giving our best sendoff to the magic year of 2014,
before welcoming that whole new year.

2015;
full of Love,

the Warriors

The LW Moon Child Collection will start off with some of our own
favorites for a cosy, pampering & feel good fall;
the soft and stylishly lazy lace kimonos and the new LW bath series
will land in the shop any day now.

Think products developed with a whole lot of love by
the LW team in collaboration with artisans rich in knowledge;
having worked with herbal remedies for two generations.
Think 100% natural ingredients. Think truly effective.
Think raw and natural materials sought out, – & sourced
since ancient times; for their skin healing qualities.
Think white clay & vanilla bean, organic honey & bali coffee,
volcanic rock & pumice stone.
Think body scrubs, face masks & home fragrances.
Think pure luxury.

these babies are pretty darn sure to run out quick..

the 4 first

 

 

©HannahLemholtWarriorsOfTheWorldMorning

 

It was a very early February morning on the Island of the Gods,
and neither the sun nor us warriors had quite woken up yet.
We got out of the car, carrying morning coffee, cameras & kimonos,
and were greeted by the guardians of the animals taken care of,
on this magical location we had just arrived at. 

As the bali sun yawned and slowly spread its warm fingers
and stroked the jungle, we all had shivers of delight,
from the unmistakable &  awe-inspiring sound of the lions roaring,
as we walked under palm trees and on a high of happiness,
to meet Adële, the elephant; our model of the day.

Then we all fell in love.

This huge & graceful animal, with the most wise & kind eyes,
had us treading carefully around on bare feet, hearts wide open.
For Adële’s guardian this is a story of the love of a lifetime;
their connection completely tangible in purity.
{In secret we were told by the others that, more often than not,
– he falls asleep and stays beside her during the night.}
It felt so good that he was the one to allow us to paint Adële,
in loving war paint of white dots {the fact it being face paint for
children sealing the deal} and that the entire air of the shoot was built on,
& pervaded by, the fact that Adële’s wellbeing, comfort & consent
was the only thing that really mattered, throughout.

It was a very early February morning on the Island of the Gods,
as we drove off, with souls and cameras full, inner & actual images
spilling over with love & humility, insights & looking forward to
adding a magic Adële, as an i am nõ 4, to a tribe so far consisting of 3,
shot earlier that winter, and already awaiting new members in
Warriors of the World, our new collection, launching.. now !

We’re real happy about the love you’ve already shown for this project,
~ & can’t wait to see which warrior whisper the loudest to your heart
and to see the collection grow,
as this, – this is only the beginning..

 

with much Love,

the Warriors

dogma

 

 

©HannahLemholtForLWPhotoArtDogma2

©HannahLemholtPhotographyDogmaINK

 

 

 We would like to say Congratulations to you who managed to get your hands
on the sold out fine art 100% cotton, numbered & signed version
of Hannah Lemholt’s Dogma for Love Warriors.  

 Dogma is now available in the shop printed on tyvek.
Tyvek is a modern material loved by all the stylists, one with a bit of both;
sheen and sturdiness. A material of high density and high-gloss.

As with all LW fine art tyvek prints, the photograph does not need to be framed,
if you don’t want to, that is, ~ as two cardboard strips & two black
metal clips; for hanging casually cool, are included.

The photographs are embossed with a stamp to guarantee authenticity.
Hannah has scanned a 200 year+ french glass silvered plate,
layering it on top of the photograph; rendering the hands and lace
timelessness with some dust and scratches.
This is a part of the beauty of this piece, – & not a flaw. 

We never keep the fine art photography in the shop for too long,
so if you’ve been eying this beauty, you perhaps should get a move on..

with Smiles and Love,

the Warriors

SKULLS, ROSES & KNITS

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographySkullsAndRoses03

 

 

Finding our bones & skulls skull necklace teamed up with raw, ripped denim and a lovely knit
in swedish brand fira’s autumn look book star crossed lovers was warrior Monday bliss.

It also reminded us to tell you lovely stargazers, pirates & gypset girls out there,
that this piece is limited edition and a minimum few is now left in the shop.
Just a little heads – or skulls – up !

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographySkullsAndRoses02

©HannahLemholtPhotographySkullsAndRoses01

 

 

 Our favorite bone carver, a silent poet of craftsmanship, makes these stunners for us.
Every skull is meticulously hand carved out of horn and are then forever joined by knots & loops of black cotton.
We love how it just takes a white tee – & denim look to the next level,
or how it gives a simple look that just misses that certain je-ne-sais-quoi, – some rock’n’roll.
We also can not help but love how it turn heads whenever we wear it out.

And there it is.
A heads up, skull style,
~ & a stunning new week coming your way !

with Love,

the Warriors

LWScentedCandlesSS14-02

 

LW scented candles | The Snake & The Octopus 

 

the Story | the Snake :

Snakes are winding in silver thru vetiver grass, that with the strongest of roots,
growing vertically in the dark beneath, like underground curtains.
Rising up against the light and the potent green, is the scent of sandal wood. 

 

LWScentedCandlesSS14-05

LWScentedCandlesSS14-04

 LoveWarriorsOctopusScentSaraNBergmanAndHannahLemholt

 

the Story | the Octopus

The octopus carry no scent or no skeleton but three hearts,
as it moves skillfully & serene in the empire of endless motion that is water.
In concurrence with the attraction of the moon it tell tales of illusion,
sending poetry in ink to disappear, leaving their attacker fogged and bewildered
left only in depth & darkness.
This depth, to us, has to carry the scent leaving us in vertigo;
that of roasted dark coffee & animal-like musk.
All for the three hearts. 

 

 

LWScentedCandlesSS14-01

 

 These LW scented candles are hand-crafted & massive,
made of a natural palm wax blend, derived from sustainable palm kernel oil,
– which is a natural alternative to petroleum based wax,
offering a cleaner & much longer burn time.

The candle is then placed in a ceramic jar that illustrator & warrior Sara N Bergman,
has designed for Love Warriors, ~ & that, after it’s burnt out
{you’re gonna need patience here, cause these bad boys burn for a looOoong time.}
are stunning for cotton, q tips or that bath salt refill in the bathroom, 
all kinds of nick-nacks on a work desk, or, – as we use ours;
as coffee cups.. oh, how perfect with a lid when you’re passionate
about what you do and tend to forget the coffee by your side.
not to mention the cool factor of serving guests  like that..
.. we imagine a dinner table set with these beauties as holding the starter, 
on top of the other ceramics*; hiding a fabulous soup,
~ or on the side; concealing a dark, sumptuous hot chocolate fudge cake.
yum!
{yes. it’s friday & we’re getting in the mood for after work goodness}..

 

peace, love and chocolate,

the Warriors

sometimes,
it should be nothing but
a whisper..

a soft getting ready
to say goodbye summer

and a hand raised in the
still warm breeze
saying
see you soon
autumn

and with that.
new inspiration & beauty
just
around
the
corner..

 

 

with love,

the warriors

lovers & warriors mantra

 

 

 

LWLoverNecklace01

 

 

We’re suckers for the duality of things, 
the yin and the yang if you will,
~ & we wanted to 
make some LW pieces
that also represent the actual duality of the 
company name,
the Lover and the Warrior.

The lover lives by the sun & loves by the moon,
so she is adorned by a big crescent moon;
handmade out of bone,
an arrow for direction in where to place that love,
& she has brought a feather from her journey;
to remind her of that white dove of the love letters
it all started with, saying,
in the words of Paul Valéry :  


One should be light like a bird,

and not like a feather

With that she smiles and wears her name,
Lover,
in gold,
proud on her chest. 

 

 
 LWLoverNecklace02
LWLoverNecklaceBox
 
 
There’s also the yin & yang in the black & the white.
White stands for peace, cleansing, illumination, purity,
innocence and the highest understanding.
White is affiliated with the planets mercury & the moon.
Employ the color white for :
cleansing, establishing order, illumination & clarity.

White’s mantra is :

‘I am illumined’

 

 
LWWarriorNecklace02
LWWarriorNecklaceBox
 
 
 
Black on the other hand, stands for a forceful feature
and represents formality, dignity, force,
convention, stability,
~ & zero-tolerance.  
Black is affiliated with the planets Saturn & Pluto.
Employ the color black for :
promoting stability and protection,
healing misunderstandings.

Black’s mantra is :

‘I am endless’
 
 
 
 LWWarriorNecklace01
 
 
 
The warrior has brought her keepsakes from the battlefield :
a black horn tusk held forever by
silver,
a tiny bird skull trophy to remind her to always trust her instincts,
~ & a feather that 
helps her find her way home.
She’s 
proud to be a warrior,
proclaims it on a silver 
amulet.
 
 
Are you a lover or a warrior ?

Either way, always;

with love,

the Warriors
