before the bloom

LoveWarriorsLaBohemeTowels01

Oh, this longing for spring.. It is infused in all our nordic hearts.
Us warriors long for the light, the flowers, the birds,
– & for the ship filled with LW s/s15 treasures to reach these northern seas.
One of the things we long most for to arrive, is the new LW line of towels.
We are silly over the moon about them, waiting at the shore for them to arrive;
linen & cotton, LW designed lace, different stunning tones and just as
beautiful & useful in the bathroom as in the kitchen..

.. and for you who’s itching, shading your face with your hand,
squinting at the horizon, wondering,
– the LW s/s15 collection La Bohème is launching april / may.

Until then,
Bloom Where You Are Planted.
Always,

the Warriors

THE LA BOHÈME DIARIES

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLoveLetterPens

We are dropping by to leave this love letter for you.
So much of the action these days are taking place over on instagram,
but there’s not quite space for all we wanna tell you on there,
– & this is the place to come to know more..

The LW s/s15 collection La Bohème is being given its final touches
in packaging and details, – & is set to launch in the shop come late april.
The collection will bring some big time favorites of ours..

©LoveWarriorsLaBohemeDiaries02

.. finally the LW office, – & travel series will start building,
with among others; pieces we’ve been missing ourselves when travelling & working.
Like a beautiful way to dust that keyboard and computer screen,
– with a LW designed feather duster, pretty enough to grace the desk always
with its timeless and monochrome feathers & shells.
Like the bigger LW passport cover (wallet / travel case) that also holds
your boarding pass, credit cards etc, all in one place, – so you don’t have to
dig in that bag for alternately & constantly all of it,
when passing those airport check points.

Then there’s the LW passport cover for you who think that does it,
the i phone (6) case, the toiletry bag beautiful enough to double as a clutch,
the keyholder proclaiming some of our favorite, empowering words; you hold the key.
All of it in a stunning, soft suede and in jet black or a clear oyster grey.

To top it off, the collection will also bring you the
amazingly but simply beautiful paper weights in petrified wood
(a special type of fossils, over 20 million years old, – & the result of wood having
completely transitioned to stone by the process of permineralization),
handmade bead boxes etc..

.. and that’s some of the reasons we just can’t wait..!
For spring & for a LW pirate ship to come fully loaded.

So much love is tucked into this collection,
as always,

the Warriors

La bohème’s light travel

©LoveWarriorsLaBoheme02

As you have been curiously asking about the
Love Warriors s/s 15 collection – La Bohème –
wanting to know & see more,
we’re dropping by to share these quick snaps with you.
Let’s start opening the box..

©LoveWarriorsLaBoheme01
©LoveWarriorsLaBoheme03

The new bohemian – La Bohème – in our mind is a traveller.
You’ll recognise him, her, us, – & yourself in wanting to
mix up your wardrobe and your home, containing those trendy pieces
(cause again; let’s face it, we all do fall for quite a few of these)
with handpicked objects carrying more soul & stories;
whispering continually of other cultures.

As we travel and move, we see how much we keep both
reaching for those few key pieces in our bags,
borrowing from each other, wanting to pack less..
.. and that’s the apparel we want to create for LW, – & you.

These LW Year of the Bird long caftans embody exactly that.
Super flattering they seem to mould to not only all our
different warrior body types, but to the different moods
and occasions, be it when we’re doing business,
hit the beach, cosy around after a long day
or get dressy for the night.

We hope you’ll fall in love with them.
We’re already there.

We’ve been, – as soon as the jungle or speed boating between islands – would allow,
trying to keep you updated on our treasure hunt over on instagram.
That has not been an easy task and we want to take the oportunity to

Thank You

for your patience these weeks, as answering e-mails and
sending out packages to all you lovely people has been on delay.
However.. this treasure hunt, this trip..!
We are left longing like never before, for all of this to be brought home
to sweden; and for us to be able to open up,
– & share our treasure trove with you.

 It’s postcards from paradise, it’s a peek at our  LW s/s15 collection,
it’s a glimpse of La Bohème, – our take on the new bohemian;
the ones with messy hair & thirsty hearts, the ones that know what they love,
and equally adore being surprised, the ones that want to mix up their
wardrobes & their homes containing the trendy pieces
(cause let’s face it, we all do fall for quite a few of these)
with handpicked objects carrying soul
and whispering of other cultures, other lives.

After all, as our girl Anaïs Nin said so beautifully;

“We travel,
some of us forever,
to seek other states,

other lives, other souls.”

LW ADVENTURES

9603

With the LW skis a new range and story begins.
This way we want to take you along on some of our LW adventures.
Bet you didn’t see skis coming between our travels to jungles and sacred monkey forests,
– but winter & snow will always be in a nordic heart and for some of us warriors;
skiing is a great and treasured passion,
so of course we had to venture into this adventure
with you along for the ride..

LW ALL MOUNTAIN SKIS

During pre-season you will carve the icy slopes effortlessly.
When spring arrives, you will play around in the spring snow
and if you hit a big snowfall you will float amazingly in the powder.
The construction is based on Extrem’s Project 100 skiis and are crafted at Åre Skidfabrik in Sweden.

The secret behind the performance is the progressive elliptic tip
and tail rocker add floatation in the soft snow,
at the same time as it becomes easy to ski on the hard packed.

The Swedish birch wood core with double layers of titanal and rubber dampening,
makes the ski stable and the skier confident.
In short the LW All Mountain Skis makes you a better skier,
– no matter what conditions awaits you on the mountain.

We are proud to say that the LW All Mountain Skis are the
Gold winner in ’Åka Skidors all-mountain test’ with descriptions such as
“the best all- mountain ski that Åka Skidor has ever tested!”.
In other words, an all mountain ski for the entire mountain !

LW ALL MOUNTAIN SKIS W

The same model as Project 100, but built with a lighter and softer wood core.
In other words, an all mountain ski for the entire mountain custom built for female riders.
The construction is based on Extrem’s Project 100 W skis and are crafted at Åre Skidfabrik in Sweden.
Stable, playful and handles rough snow conditions without any problems.

We say;
ski your asses off during the day and become king or queen at the after ski !
And after all, summer bodies are made in the winter.

May your life be full of adventure.

with Love,

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.

 ©HannahLemholtPhotographyLookBookMoonchild24
©HannahLemholtPhotographyLookBookMoonchild23

.. 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

©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..

 

 

©HannahLemholtForLoveWarriorsCalendar15SheetsChristmas

©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

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 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.

 

©HannahLemholtElephantGuardian01

©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

~ & spend some quality Warrior time sketching up LW 2015.
We feel inspired to the brim and flow over with
happiness, creativity and love of being united again.

 We scent, stroke and reason over product tests,
love how the labels turned out on the upcoming moon child kimonos,
~ & can’t wait for new photo art on paper bags to come next year.

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.

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

{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..

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.}

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}..

.. 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.}
