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..

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

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.

©HannahLemholtElephantKiss

 

 

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

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

yin and yang

 

 LWFeatherFestoon03-1

 

 

White and airy, floating over the bed in Hannah’s studio
is the LW feather festoon, ~ & we can’t wait to see
what you lovelies get up to with yours.
{Let’s just whisper that there are some being used in
 a look book shoot where the theme is gypset summer wedding,
~ now that’s just a stunning scope of use we love and exactly
one of those we dreamed up when Sara designed
this piece of natural & unostentatious beauty.}

 

 

LWBirdsOfAFeatherNecklace02

LWVintageWoodUrnsAndFeatherDusters03

 

 

Black and intense is the ’fan’ of LW feather dusters,
which had to be shot climbing a fear-of-heights-maker-ladder
with their boldly beautiful size 1 meter length.
We think we always have, ~ & always will, love feathers.
Natural beauty, sighs of hope & understated elegance put to use,
you just gotta love that. And there it is again;
the yin and the yang, the black and the white,
the love and the war, if you will.

And us, looking forward to seeing you putting
yours to elegant use, ~ & also;
wishing you all a stunning new week..

with Love,

the Warriors

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}..

 

LWWarriorLoveLetterPenWhite

LWWarriorLoveLetterPenThundersky

LWWarriorLoveLetterPenFlatlay

 

 

.. 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.}

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..

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

november loves

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyNovemberLovesLWSkullNecklace

 

november is, so far, all about transitioning from our
lingering indian summer into a sweden that is putting on
a stunningly grey, – & cosily soft winter coat.

it’s about autumn parties & work on the eve of winter.
it’s still about black and white and we’re adding
some simply stunning details to amp up the base.
there’s a limited edition of our bones & skulls necklaces,
a skull necklace handmade out of deer horn & black cotton..
{yes. perhaps you have seen it before.}

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyNovemberLovesLWSkullNecklace02

 

.. & there’s also another limited edition piece,
the beautiful white warrior necklace, that we
just had to share with you guys, beyond the ones we
lugged home for our own homes on our latest trip.

we’ve seen the more common shell necklaces
with the long kinda ’bib’ coming down the center,
but we so extra love the shape of these round ones;
that are at the same time a bit more neat & easily placed,
– but still at least as boldly beautiful, with their large,
white & glossy shells meet matte, natural brown cotton body
teamed with those sweet cream & pigeon-blue seed pods..

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyNovemberLovesLWShellNecklace
©HannahLemholtPhotographyNovemberLovesLWShellNecklace02

 

there’s a leather & cowrie shells key ring, singing to us
about summer, far into the autumn nights. we just
wanna carry a bit of the ocean with us in our every day life.
it reminds us there’s always summer somewhere and
that sandy feet &  midnight swims are sure to come again.
that’s why we call it the endless summer keychain.
it’s handmade and oh, a complete steal too..

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyNovemberLovesLWKeychain

 

 and there you have ’em. our november loves. 
in the shop. n o w. enjoy !

with love, – & more to come,

a spoonful of love

 

CoconutSpoons03Love

 

you might already know we’re {coco}nuts about
natural materials like wood, horn & bone.
especially the naturally aged ones with that special,
worn beauty that only time can render.
well, let’s just say we love it.

we love how it’s been loved, how it gives
our homes that unique touch that we
always strive for, ~ & we love how it just works,
both in simple style & beauty and also;
proven over time, with its worn look as the sign;
to have worked over and over again. 
 

CoconutSpoons02
CoconutSpoons01

 

this time it’s almost all about spoons.
we bought ours already last year; on our very first warrior trip,
as we fell instantly in love with the antique spoons
from papua; made from coconut.
since then they’ve been featured in some interior magazines
and spread on blogs, ~ & you’ve wondered about how to get ’em.

now we’ve saved you a trip to papua, ~ & are so happy to have
tracked them down, thoroughly handpicked the most
beautiful ones and brought them home for the shop. and you.
we use ours in our bathrooms; gracing bowls & jars of
bath salts, and in our kitchens, to go with brown sugar
and white sea salt. they’re a simply such a beautiful detail..

 

CrescentMoonWarriors02
CrescentMoonWarriors01

 

.. and so are the crescent moon warriors.
we just love those little bad boys too. that love story
started the same way; with us falling head over heels
and going all have to have – nuts.

these are also antique and from papua, ~ & in this case
they’ve been used for storing medicine and we actually use
some of ours that way too. also they’re really cool, just as they
are; again with that quality we love; casually bringing
a unique touch to our homes, making statements
on piles of books and next to those fresh cut flowers.

 

CrescentMoonWarriors04

 

so. a spoonful of love makes the medicine go down. we say.
and it’s all to be found in the shop just now.
hey autumn beautifiers, we love you !

the warriors

indian summer – the scents

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLookingForLoveLabelLWScent

 

scent has something magic to it, already in its name somehow,
~ & we’ve probably all had experiences of time travel in its company.
one of our most magic experiences involving scent at all, 
must be the hours we spent selecting top, ~ & base notes for these,
our first scented candles. just the setting.. an all white little candle factory
in the outskirts of the jungle; where the american owner had a longterm standing
collaboration with the world capital of perfume; grasse in france.

we travelled, in many ways, together that glowing afternoon;
carefully opening tiny apothecary bottles in long rows, 
labelled with their special perfume, ~ & mixing these, our three
final scents to start off with. a light, airy one; later named love and linen,
a ’middle one’, with flowery tones and history,
~ & a heavier one, with musky chocolate. something for each taste.

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyWarriorWeekend02@2x

 

we would sit and listen to their stories of the scents,
~ & one in particular we so enjoyed; having seen both men and
woman wear a flower behind their ear in the little town.
we were taught the chempaka flower is used for worship in the temples,
but also worn as a sign, behind the ear of singles, to send the
fragrant & beautiful message that they are looking for love.
{eat dust facebook statuses..}

and now, as the indian summer selection has launched,
we are so happy to take you along with us, on this, our first fragrance journey..
we’re all children in the beginning as we say in swedish,
~ & we’d love some of your constructive feedback on our first attempt.

there’s the  lovely organically shaped
{shells are the inspiration} – salt & pepper shakers
that lie like understated, beautiful jewelry on the table ..

and last but not least there’s the mugs, a coffee lovers must.
the ceramics are handmade, designed by the love warriors and 
has a crispy white glaze adorned simply by the LW logo;
the sacred and timeless temple flower. the edges are rough and thereby
has that touch that we love; that every piece is handmade and unique.

that’s it. so far ! we’re expanding the love warriors own
ceramics  with many more beautiful details to come, 
~ & this series will be a part of our future standard assortment.
we love how it, because of its purity, mixes so well
with the porcelain and ceramics we each already use at home.
here to take you through some more of the newbies 
in the days to come..

in the words of the stylish paris;

peace, love and good chocolate,

it seem you, like us, are starting to feel some serious
excitement of spring; where one wants to
bring in fresh flowers, pot plants,
clean out the house and start afresh,
~ light scented candles in a new way it appears;
in a more airy fashion.
you’re clearing the love warrior shop
of white lace longhorns and 
winged photo art etc.

we’re so happy you like what we do,
~ & in a few weeks we’re opening up
our sneak peek two;
with more lovely new arrivals.
among other things, we’re already
in love with the hand painted, white 
balinese baskets, that so beautifully
swallow a whole lott’a’stuff. 
perfect for spring !

killer cute & ceramics

 

Ceramics 

we’ve had our first dinner date using the
love warriors ceramics.
and what a dinner it was.
with all the warriors coming
together there’s something that
seem to always happen.

let’s just say it’s magic.

{dinner plate + plate : love warriors}

 

the ceramic is handmade & we love how
it has that organic feel; just the way we wanted it
and how the bowls remind us of shapes from 
nature; like shells, and how well it goes 
with both rough linen & striped paper napkins,
and how it just.. works, ~ in the ways that 
you don’t really know on a sketchpad, but
until you all of a sudden eat from it,
put it in the microwave oven, or  accidentally
drop one, or deliberately throw one
as the greek spirit moves you further into the
night for that matter. we’ll say it again..
magic.

we’re planning for spring, 
we’re gonna bombard you with photographs, 
we’re sending packages for you lovelies around the world, 
we’ve got to use the ’sold out’ sticker more than we
were prepared for, ~ & we’re loving every single minute.
we’ve also grown by one additional warrior.
meet kerstin. also known as killer-kerstin.
{the kitchen-broom is.no.more.}

a warrior weekend

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLiteSvartLiteVitt4 

vi kikar in hos vännen sandra, ~ & hennes fina lilla familj.
vitt te & svart kaffe, barnskratt som får även vuxna att bubbla
och så brasan & inspirationen som ständigt brinner här; 
gör deras hem till ett av krigarnas favoriter.
här hänger vi gärna upp vår kimono & stannar länge.

 och så firar vi denna helg; 
alldeles i verkligheten mellan dammsugning & ett glas vin, 
mellan gitarrspel & barndans, högt & lågt,
~ & med all den kärlek som ryms i varenda glipa därutöver.

vi önskar Er en riktigt härlig helg !

med kärlek,

the warriors  

  

LWLOGOCLEAN

 

we drop by our beloved friend sandra, ~ & her lovely little family.
white tea and black coffee, childrens laughter who makes even adults bubble
and then the fire and inspiration that’s constantly burning here;
makes their home one of the warriors’ absolute favorites.
here we wanna hang up our kimono & stay for a long time..

and that’s how we celebrate this weekend;
smack in the middle of reality; between vacuuming & a glass of wine,
between guitar playing & kids dancing, between high & low,
~ & with all the love that can fill every little gap in addition.

we wish you a delightful weekend !

with love,

the warriors
