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.}

.. & 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..

werk

 when we work, we work. 
and that is mostly what we do do.
a lot of work goes into being a love warrior.

then there’s play. 
{all work and no play, well, ~ you know..}

and when we play, we play.
a lot more play than we could’ve ever imagined
goes into being a love warrior.

did we tell you it all started as a dream
on the side of cocktails, – and a cocktail napkin
with a name scribbled on it ? 
just little over a year ago, spilling ideas and
perhaps some daiquiri, on that very piece of tissue,
on that very name,  – we would’ve never have thought
we’d be where we are today.

never thought it’d turn out to be a
love of our lives.

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLoveWhatYouDo

 

and what’s to say about that ?
a must is to say thank you. to you.
thank you for being a part of this journey
and bringing it, – & us even more love.

and what’s more ?
if you have a dream, don’t let it be
just a note, a name
scribbled on a piece of paper.
give it a shot. give it all you’ve got.
and love what you do.

yesterday we got to hang with our fellow warrior
for the ’memento vivere’ shoot in her studio
{images coming up with our new kimono series : soon}.
beside the killer skull necklace, our favorite bone carver guy
made by hand as a prototype, miss honeypie, – reluctant to have 
her picture taken, ~ was wearing her samples of the
bracelets with antique shells from papua;
that we’ve just launched in the shop.

 

LWShellbraceletsAntique02

 

you who’s signed up for love letters has already
received a heads up about this, ~ & you who sees it now;
we only have a limited edition of those babies,
so go get’em quick if you love’em as much as we do.

we’ve also re-stocked the incredibly popular
white & wider shell bracelets; the love story that
just keeps on going. the love warriors laser cut leather
is also finally back in stock, with the 1st round having sold 
out quicker than we could’ve ever imagined.
we’re dizzy happy with the thought you lovely fashionistas,
~ & gypsy glam lovelies, are now walking with our design tucked
under your arms, – the streets of new york, amsterdam,
tokyo, sydney etc.. you make us proud, sisters !

 

LWShellBraceletWhite01

 

there we go.. shell accessories & leather is up in the shop.
kimonos are on their way. look out for the memento vivere collection,
with handmade bone skulls at the back, ~ & a whole lot of love
sewn into the seams. memento vivere {latin meaning ’remember to live’,
engendered by the admonition memento mori, meaning ’remember
to die’.} .. yes, that’s a warrior way of living.

 what comes out of a shoot like this?
well, we can share a detail-shot, behind the scenes,
a self portrait by hannah, all ’skulled up’,
stronger than we think we ever saw her, so ready
to live that beautiful life. no reminder really required.

a sacred soft-start

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLWGoesFashion1

 

.. with a soft-start jump we’re now realizing our plans,
~ & are adding some ’fashion’ to the love warriors concept.
the laser cut leather is extended into a small, first collection of
shell accessories with necklaces {sneak peek in these images},
a re-stock of the shell bracelet you’ve been asking about
and finally, a first series of kimonos, one of our
favorite garments, in a love warrior way.

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLWGoesFashion2

  

we’re enjoying the amazing company to be found here in
sacred monkey forest, making the final adjustments
to the kimonos, ~ & are, in general having a magic time.
we’ll be back with more sneak peeks of what we’re creating here,
both fashion, ~ & monkey business, in the days to come..

jump jump !
with love of course, 

the warriors

the bali way

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyEveningWork

 

a designer, ~ & photographer greeting from bali.
having evening meetings at little restaurants tucked away
in narrow alleys; where magic opens up if only you dare stray and
paper lanterns are all that lights up designer sketches and blog-posts,
stunningly sheer rice fields and the kindest faces on earth.

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyMorningRitualBaliWeb ©HannahLemholtPhotographyMorningWalkWeb

 

enjoying the balinese rituals on any time of day,
~ & in every corner; offerings to the gods;
full of respect and seemingly in an own little world,
that you can feel nothing but so blessed just to
get to witness, along with your own, so much more
mundane morning rituals of brushing teeth & washing face.

taking morning walks where the path to get to
morning coffee and treasure hunting, is through the
sacred monkey forest, casts a spell on us every
single morning. this is the bali way of working and
the warriors never cease to fall in love,
over and over in this island of the gods and
their people; like none else on earth.

tomorrow part of the tribe is joining in,
~ & in another few days we’ll be completed as
the entire love warrior gang is re-united in bali, for
finding treasures to bring home, ~ & the continuation 
of designing more of our own work in between the
rice fields; with dimmed lights, the best cocktails on earth
and a very special we-can’t-even-describe-it-ambiance
that we’ve only come across in bali; 
where everything you’ve ever dreamed of
just seem to fall in to place.

perhaps it’s all the offerings to the gods.
perhaps it’s the pure goodness that just fills
this entire little place on earth up completely; from
the smiles that always reaches the eyes of the people
to that feeling of no one ever yelling or honking a car horn.

we’ll see you again, lovelies,
from a place on earth we’d love for everyone
to get to visit at least once in their life. 

much love,

the warriors

love lace

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLoveLace2@2x

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLoveLace3@2x

 

one of the {many} perks of being a love warrior
is you get to enjoy the prototypes. 
the true joy part of the enjoy is when you
realize the prototypes become the go-to-things,
~ like the leather laptop cases, which has turned
out to be just that; our go-to-bag.

another true joy part of the enjoy
is the laughter when we all come together
for meetings, and there’s two of the lace and
one of the skull kind laying on the table; 
in total commitment and love for the brand, 
which is all totally how it should be !
sara has her brown lace one filled with
sketches, illustrations and magazine tear offs,
honeypie’s black holds a whole mess of
small props and magazines, ~ & warrior mama
actually uses her for what the cases were
meant for in the first place; 
her laptop.

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLoveLace1@2x
 

..it is a true joy and pure love
to see one’s ideas turn into reality, and 
turn into use and see it work.

we’re just happy.
and we hope you are too !
and as for sharing the lace {& skull-} love,
it’s being worked at frenetically and is making its
way into le shop soon; in the upcoming 
indian summer selection.

questions ?
never hesitate to ask !

with love,

the warriors

we love leather

LWLeatherLonghornsProduct01

 

it started with wishes for a beautiful 
way to carry our laptops around.
we were on a plane somewhere over 
indonesia, ~ & our dreams were flying
equally high. said and done; sara started
sketching and come 2013 we found an
amazing swedish tannery, a little
company with a lot of heart and skill,
that has been producing some of
the world’s finest premium leather 
since 1873, ~ & with just the 
environmentally sound production and
standpoint that we wanna be part of.

 

LWLeatherLaceEnvironment01 LWLeatherLaceEnvironment02

 
if you’re curious, tärnsjö ~ house of leather,
has some beautiful short movies about
the story behind the tannery that
’open the doors to their unique business, 
share the ethos of their craftsmen
and the spirit of the beautiful place they
call home‘. we are so happy it is them 
that are now completing sara’s
visions for our love leather range,
~ & so proud to say not only
’said and done’,
but also dreamt and done ..

 

LWLeatherLonghornsModel03 LWLeatherLonghornsModel02

 

last but not least
we are also so happy about
the amazing & lovely feedback
from you guys; on these first
two items in the love leather range,
~ & as some of you have wanted
to know over on instagram;
yes ! do sign up for love letters
here with us,
to receive a heads up when
’longhorns’ &’ lovelace’ are to
be released in le shop.

with love, 

the warriors
