LW Winter’14

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLookBookMoonchild07

With todays LW Winter’14 launch, many projects close to our hearts saw the light.
One of them is the new series LW Moon Child Botanicals.
With the bliss of traveling one of our favorite countries,
we’ve been wanting to do bath and fragrance,
since the very first time we set our tired feet down
in a spa on the island of the gods.
The balinese just do spa like no others.

Think products developed with a whole lot of love,
by the LW team in collab with artisans rich in knowledge;
having worked with herbal remedies for over 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 and home fragrances.
Think pure luxury with a clean conscience.

Think LW Moon Child Botanicals. And find it here.

Another one is the longed for LW Moon Child Lace Kimonos, – & now caftans too.
For us, making kimonos & caftans has always been a full circle – kinda thing,
as we can still remember, with a murmur thru our hearts,the lazy weekend mornings of our childhoods,
where our mothers & fathers would lounge around in theirs.
With this LW Moon Child series we wanted to continue that legacy,
and if kimonos and caftans are a must in the Warrior wardrobe, so is lace,
-& we have therefore combined the two in these garments.
Wear them with nothing but bare skin, feeling beautiful around the house, and all dressed up as well,
with a belt for a more defined look, they are made for it.
The soft and stylishly lazy lace get up is here to remind you
we live by the sun and love by the moon.

You find them all in the Warrior Wardrobe.

Another loved project in the launch is LW Warriors of the World.
This series in the making, is one inspired by all the amazing creatures and characters
we meet on our journeys around the globe, – & a reminder that we all have a fighter inside of us;
that can be wisely brought out, who ever and where ever we are, when needed.

Our designer Sara N Bergman paints with hand, heart (& kind childrens paint)
and photographer Hannah Lemholt shoots and immortalizes.
Magic souls and loving warriors, brought to you by LW.
Now available as both fine art prints in different sizes
and the new, rough craft paper photo bags.

Yet another project close to our hearts,
– & launched in the winter collection, is the LW photo art calendar’15.

As the end of one year is drawing closer, the promise of a new one lies in the middle distance.
To us it feels like we’re all glancing at it, together, not really knowing,
however much we think we can plan life.
We can aspire though.

And that pretty much sums up what the LW photo art calendar for 2015 is about.
We wanted to repeat to you, some of our own watchwords, like
integrity, strength, personality, kindness, creativity, empathy, affinity honesty, hope,
– & a little bit of mischief on every new month of the new year.

Warrior and 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 our common favorite quotes by inspiring people
(all to be found credited in the index of the calendar prints).

We’ve all put our soul, creativity and love into this project
and we are so happy about the outcome,
– & your love for it, already flowing over in e-mails and wishes to pre order.

It is here now. 2015. Let’s make it …

There’s also a brand new collab & collection, that we are very proud of,
– & one that has been kept a bit under wraps until now.
And that’s the LW Khadi Kimonos.
This unisex LW designed kimono is 100 % handmade of soft Khadi textiles.
This means that the cotton is hand picked, the spinning of the cotton is made by hand
and the yarn is woven by hand into organic fabric of superior quality.

Khadi is not even just a fabric, it’s a whole movement started by Mahatma Gandhi,
promoting Indian goods, to improve India’s economy and independence.
Gandhi worked for khadi-spinning to strengthen the rural Indian self-employment and self-reliance.
Thus khadi symbolizes political ideas and independence and still today most politicians in India only dress in Khadi,
it is used in a number of suits in the new Star Wars movies and in fashion alike.
We lovingly collaborate on these LW Khadi Kimonos with our friends Harmit & Bess in India,
carrying the proud handmade tradition of eco cotton and political values in between its threads.

.. along with treasures from the sea,
– & details that make for the kind of deco that, as you probably know by now,
we have a weak spot for; those that can be part of a 
natural home.
For us, the holidays, like Christmas, is no exception, and we wanted to bring
that LW touch to you as well, as an alternative to the traditional.
We also love it when things can be used in many ways and not only for a dizzyingly
fleeting time, and therefore decided to have our artisan friends make these
ideas come together, – in adding string attachment to the LW shell balls,
and golden rings to white feathers,
– that now can hang dreamlike from a christmas tree, a tree in the garden
for that special summer dinner, on a door handle, on a hanger holding that beloved
dress on the wall, – or just bundled together in a glass box,
beautifully awaiting your next idea..

Oh, there’s a horse and a pig as well.
toki toki – we’ll let you discover those on your own..
And discover all of it, your way,
hoping you’ll enjoy the LW winter collection.

With a whole lot of Love,

the Warriors

calendar making season | vol.2

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLoveWarriorsCalendar15Nov

 

 

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..

©HannahLemholtForLoveWarriorsCalendar15Sheets

 

 

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

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

the love letters

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLaceAndGoldLinings01

 

we had several things to tell you darlings
in todays love letter, so one thing had to be left out.
{one can only take so much love in one single letter, right?} 

what we also wanted to tell you, is that as there’s still such
high demand for the hand carved love warriors ’lace longhorns’
buffalo skulls, ~ we are taking pre orders on them.
and a lovely thing is that if you want to treat yourself,
or someone you love to one for christmas;
they can now be pre-booked in the shop,
~ & you’ll receive a special gift wrapped card and
the delivery will be in february.

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLWLeatherLoveLaceAndLoveletters02

 

.. and about those love letters now..
we get a lot of e-mails & questions over on instagram
about wanting to be first in line for things, and that’s the
beauty of signing up for our love letters {see the tab right there
on your left?}.. when you do, you get an e-mail full of love,
always a little while before we give the signal on
instagram {or here} for goodness about to hit the shop,
or for something special that is up.

and we promise never to be one of those overeager lovers,
who bombard you with.. well, just too much,
where you have to throw things in the wastebasket every
other day. no wilting red roses or chocolate that has
time to expire. we just don’t roll like that..
so no smothering, just the lovely note that shows up
when you least expect it, ~ & which,
hopefully you love, right back.

 

LWCalendar01

 

 

like today.
today the love letter whispered, a little beforehand,
about the fact that we’ve launched
the limited edition LW photo art calendar’14
a year in the life of lovers & warriors
in the shop..

 

LWKimonoLaParisienne03

 

 

.. it also gave a little heads up about the fact that you can
now pre-order from the 1st LW kimono collection, 
memento vivere,
and that if you wish; you get a gift wrapped kimono card
sent to you upon purchase, if this is something you’d wanna put
under the christmas tree for someone special, ~ & the
delivery will then be made mid january to brighten
up those first days of a brand new year.

a year in the life of lovers & warriors.
isn’t it powerful somehow, that feeling, that we’re
all, together, – all of us who are alive right. very. now.
are about to enter another, brand new year together.
that’s the magic feeling we want to celebrate
this december. with you.

and a whole crazy lot of love,

the warriors

 

p.s there’s now also the option of giving that special
kind of love away as a gift, ~ the one where the
lucky recipient get to go ooh & aah for just as
long as they want and choose all for themselves
what they indeed love the most.
the LW giftcards. enjoy! d.s

the year of lovers & warriors

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyTheYearOfLovers&WarriorsExtraFineArtSheet1

 

let us tell you guys who hasn’t already got an eye on this,
~ & us, over on instagram, – what our beloved warriors miss bergman
and miss lemholt has been up to this october & november..

we’ve talked a little bit about it before.
the 1st ever love warriors calendar is about to come to light,
~ & let’s just say we’ve been as busy as ever, getting it all
together for the new year. the year we call

the year of lovers & warriors

’14 

 ©HannahLemholtPhotographyTheYearOfLovers&WarriorsSheetJanToApril

 

it’s all heart, ~ & handmade. miss bergman has hand painted everything
from the name of the months on bodies, to the dates under the finished photographs.
the photos, shot by miss lemholt, is a mix of washed out scandinavian colors,
~ & timeless black and whites, which she has then lovingly covered in
scanned 200 year + antique french glass silvered plate.

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyTheYearOfLovers&WarriorsSheetMayToAugust

 printed large, in a3 format  {29,7 x 42 cm | 11,7 x 16,5 in} it’s both boldly beautiful and
has space for your handwriting to begin, in scribbled notes & circumscribed dates.
and the print? well, the paper is, of course, not just any ol’ one.
it’s a 270 g premium, fine art uncoated paper. 
the fine art sheets come intact for you to choose your own way of hanging,
pinning or perhaps magnet fastening, ~ & for the opportunity to
cut out the square format photos clear; should you wish to use them
more as your own kind of art some other way.

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyTheYearOfLovers&WarriorsSheetSeptToDec 

 
and as if that wasn’t enough to make it the, dare we say it,
~ christmas gift of the year, we’re packing the beautiful, handmade box
it comes in, with three additional fine art prints, shot by miss lemholt to boot.
printed just as large as the rest & on the same beautiful paper, you get your
hands on some fine art goodness. one is the 1st photograph atop in this post,
~ & the other two are these, ‘alaïa’ and ‘rock on, love’. 

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyTheYearOfLovers&WarriorsExtraFineArtSheetAlaia

©HannahLemholtPhotographyTheYearOfLovers&WarriorsExtraFineArtSheetRockOnLove

 

 

 launching in the shop this weekend we’re giving you a
loving, golden heads {and hand-} up about this limited edition
box of goodness that we hope will bring you, or someone you love,
a lot of joy in the new year, ~ the one of lovers & warriors.

~ & fight the good fight,

the warriors
