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.

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

lovers & warriors mantra

 

 

 

LWLoverNecklace01

 

 

We’re suckers for the duality of things, 
the yin and the yang if you will,
~ & we wanted to 
make some LW pieces
that also represent the actual duality of the 
company name,
the Lover and the Warrior.

The lover lives by the sun & loves by the moon,
so she is adorned by a big crescent moon;
handmade out of bone,
an arrow for direction in where to place that love,
& she has brought a feather from her journey;
to remind her of that white dove of the love letters
it all started with, saying,
in the words of Paul Valéry :  


One should be light like a bird,

and not like a feather

With that she smiles and wears her name,
Lover,
in gold,
proud on her chest. 

 

 
 LWLoverNecklace02

There’s also the yin & yang in the black & the white.
White stands for peace, cleansing, illumination, purity,
innocence and the highest understanding.
White is affiliated with the planets mercury & the moon.
Employ the color white for :
cleansing, establishing order, illumination & clarity.

White’s mantra is :

‘I am illumined’

 

 
LWWarriorNecklace02
LWWarriorNecklaceBox
 
 
 
Black on the other hand, stands for a forceful feature
and represents formality, dignity, force,
convention, stability,
~ & zero-tolerance.  
Black is affiliated with the planets Saturn & Pluto.
Employ the color black for :
promoting stability and protection,
healing misunderstandings.

Black’s mantra is :

‘I am endless’
 
 
 
 LWWarriorNecklace01
 
 
 
The warrior has brought her keepsakes from the battlefield :
a black horn tusk held forever by
silver,
a tiny bird skull trophy to remind her to always trust her instincts,
~ & a feather that 
helps her find her way home.
She’s 
proud to be a warrior,
proclaims it on a silver 
amulet.
 
 
Are you a lover or a warrior ?

Either way, always;

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.}

One of the Love Warriors projects for 2014,
~ & also planned to be an ongoing one,
is portraits of warriors around the world.

to shoots & stylists, are the four first warriors;
Adi, Camilla, Lamy & Adéle.
And in whispering stunning shadows,
awaits already more of those to follow, shot on
the Love Warriors travels,

And remember ’Walk tall, kick ass, love music

what’s up, warrior

It’s that time for us love warriors where, outwardly,
we’re quite silent. Behind the wings it’s as busy as ever.
Inter alia, final touches are being put to new pieces for
the LW warrior wardrobe, and that means we get to dive into
bone, horn, gold, feathers & the close collaboration
with our very favorite artisans.

Here’s another little sneak peek at the
LW arrow collection for s/s 14.
Forward, baby, forward.
Past all your fears.

 

with 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.

jungle sunsets

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

.. she’s also a sneak peek at how, among other ways,
– we’re gonna welcome the new year. earlier this fall sara
and hannah began their long planned for warrior project, which 
will be featuring portraits of different warriors from around the world.
the warriors have, ~ & will have, two things in common;
sara’s hand painted patterns and a heart full of love.
the tribe will end up on special, hand touched fine art prints,
~ & also on a new little line of products that we’re so looking forward to.

2014. 
truly the year of lovers & warriors.

 

LoveArrowDividerLWBlog

 

what else is coming, you ask?
we say the new year will bring a whole lot of new LW love.
first in line are the kimonos, a new little limited edition of the
bones & skulls skull necklace, back by extremely popular demand
as you cleaned us out in a matter of hours last time,
~ & also some new stunning sheepskins.

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
