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 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

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

SKULLS, ROSES & KNITS

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographySkullsAndRoses03

 

 

Finding our bones & skulls skull necklace teamed up with raw, ripped denim and a lovely knit
in swedish brand fira’s autumn look book star crossed lovers was warrior Monday bliss.

It also reminded us to tell you lovely stargazers, pirates & gypset girls out there,
that this piece is limited edition and a minimum few is now left in the shop.
Just a little heads – or skulls – up !

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographySkullsAndRoses02

©HannahLemholtPhotographySkullsAndRoses01

 

 

 Our favorite bone carver, a silent poet of craftsmanship, makes these stunners for us.
Every skull is meticulously hand carved out of horn and are then forever joined by knots & loops of black cotton.
We love how it just takes a white tee – & denim look to the next level,
or how it gives a simple look that just misses that certain je-ne-sais-quoi, – some rock’n’roll.
We also can not help but love how it turn heads whenever we wear it out.

And there it is.
A heads up, skull style,
~ & a stunning new week coming your way !

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

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..

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.

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 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

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.}

.. & 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..

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..

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

september is here with autumn scents
of wood and apple. we’re sketching on our existing work;
expanding the temple flower ceramics, the leather & more..
we’re also packing for a purchase journey, ~ where we’re
going treasure hunting again, and we’ll be bringing you
more new design of our own when we come back.

 

CeramicsShell&MotherOfPearlMoodDetail2

 

in sweden autumn’s saying a lengthy goodbye to summer,
and we’ll be flying back it feels like; back almost in time;
to more of summer, more naked feet in the sand and
bare skin in the breeze. from the 7th of september until the
23rd we’ll be out of the love-war headquarters and we
apologize in advance for the delay in e-mail,
~ & order responses during this time.
we’re a tight little tribe, travelling all together.
  we’re hoping to be able to take you along perhaps,
for some parts of the trip though..

indian summer – the temple flowers

 

 

LWIndianSummerSelectionInstaAndBlogFace

 

 

hey lovelies,

we wanted to stop by and say we’re sorry if the love warriors shop & site
is a bit slow this weekend, ~ but we can’t say we’re sorry why;
as it is slow because you’re going nuts in there !
we’re really glad you like our indian summer selection.
in there is for example the love warriors own temple flower ceramics..

 

Ceramics
 

 
.. which  so far consists of bowls; 
in all the sizes we find a need for & then some.

 

CeramicsBowlMini

 

there’s five to choose from, starting with the mini
and going all the way up to the xl ..

 

CeramicsBowls01@2x
CeramicsBowls03@2x
CeramicsGeneral06@2x

 

there’s the plates;
the dinner one and the side dish one ..

 

CeramicsPlates
CeramicsPlatesDetail

 

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

 

CeramicsSaltAndPepper

 

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. 

 

CeramicsMugs03@2x
CeramicsCups2 

 

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,

the warriors
