{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.

daughter of smoke & bone

by now you’re already pre-ordering like crazy from the 1st LW kimono collection,
memento vivere, and we’re so happy you like our creations !
last, but not least to be featured, is the daughter of smoke & bone.
she’s a subtly strong one. the evening is darkening in the alley-ways of marrakech
and the soft fabric is flowing behind her as she walks thru them,
soaking up the scent; meandering in smoke whirls from the silver tea-pots,
taking impressions from the stacks of fabrics she grazes as she passes.
what stays on in the pattern is the moroccan tiles and the
memory of the cheetah she secretly let out of its cage.

.. and of course she, like all the others, is carrying a handmade talisman;
a skull carved out of horn, in the back of her neck. to always keep an
eye out for her where she can’t see, ~ & to remind her of memento vivere.
remember to live
. it’s honeypie‘s favorite at the moment. she tells
us she even falls asleep with it on, dreaming then the residues of those
moroccan alley-ways, the al hamra, the scent of musk & myrrh,
sweet tea & herbs, ~ & the trail of soft smoke.

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.

.. 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 snake charmer

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLWSnakeCharmerKimono01

 

and here she is. the snake charmer. or rather her attire.
the snake charmer kimono.
she’s for the daring ones, for the ones that wanna be
a bit of both; wild & untamed but with a surprisingly soft touch.
as we told you about before, we decided not to produce any
real snake LW products, due to the cruel treatment we
couldn’t be guaranteed they would have to suffer, for us
to enjoy a stunning purse or clutch. we all stood in awe as the
spitting cobra raised, statuesquely transfixing us warriors
with its strong & unfaltering glance, ~ and spit its poison in
our direction. then we decided to simply be respectfully inspired
by its skin & yes, just so – surprisingly soft touch..

to see the painter’s daughter, or if you like more just the
dream of a snake we’ve presented them to you back in time,
~ & our honeypie has given you a glimpse of la parisienne
and any day now we’ll tell you a little more about the
daughter of smoke & bone ..
we’re already blown away by your welcoming
of this, our 1st little kimono collection, 
and we’re getting back to you on your pre-orders & questions
as fast as we can. oh, how you make us proud, sisters.

 

stay amazing!
much love,

the warriors
