{The Story of the LW Memento Bracelets}

Some things are just timeless.
The LW bracelets with talismans
(an object which is attributed magical qualities),
is fully charged with the power of beauty
from a heartfelt collaboration
between LW & our artisans of bone and horn;
with the air of the island of the gods
and with the belief we live by; that we must
remember to live, – memento vivere
and remember to fly, – memento fugere,
as there’s no other way of saying it than that
in fact every day is a gift
and we should live as close to that truth
as we possibly can.

We wanted to create something that would
remind ourselves of this,
~ & on our arms now, are these
hand made beauties of bone, horn
and just a hint of gold,
as one should wear ones heart
and what is closest to it,
on ones sleeve.

Here’s wishing you a stunning end
to your 1st week of July..
Remember to Live & Remember to Fly,
you lovely creatures,

summer 14 is in the house

 

 

LWWarriorLoveLetterPenBlack

 

Last years treasure hunt is behind the warriors,
and as we’ve returned from the battlefield,
brought home the treasures bit by bit,
~ & collected them in the store for you lovely pirates,
it is now your time to go hunting..

We’ve packed this LW summer collection’14
full of love, ~ & hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we are.
It’s jam-packed with everything from smaller details,
like the feathery love letter pencils,
that comes in white, black & thundersky
{a stunning bluish grey we adore}..

.. to kick-ass bigger pieces like the LW petrified wood tables or pallets ..

{We literally stopped in our tracks seeing the stunning
works of art that is petrified wood, tucked away in a secret street,
that suddenly turned into heaven.
From a distance at first we thought it was wood,
but hurrying closer, – & then stroking the pieces, sighing with delight,
we realized it was stone. Or to be more exact, – this amazing
material petrified wood (which we think is a funny name too, as it 
sounds as if someone scared it into stone) is a million year (!)
natural fossil process of turning wood into stone.
Left are those breathtakingly beautiful, completely unique,
& über cool pieces of the magic of nature eternalized,
which we couldn’t wait to bring home
as LW tables or pallets and plates or cheese boards.
We often fall crazy in love on our treasure hunts, but some
loves truly are eternal & timeless. These pieces are exactly that.}

Hello may tuesday, ~ & lovelies,

to pop in and tell you there’s, among new treasures, some of your 
absolute LW favorites, some for the last time, – making a
requested return visit in the shop. 
We’ve got one last round of the LW lace longhorns,
the vintage palm tree trays, wooden trays & leather key chains,
along with the sought after shell bracelet & one row shell necklace..

Good times. Nothing but good times ahead.

And Love,

the Warriors

a warrior day off

 

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyDreambeach01FiniV

 

 

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.

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

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

LoveWarriorsTheDesignerAtWork

 

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..

 

Duo10 

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

HannahLemholtPhotographyWarriorWeekend01

 

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.  

 

HannahLemholtPhotographyWarriorWeekend10

 

HannahLemholtPhotographyWarriorWeekend09W

 

.. 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
