Today I am revealing. Something. Sacred.
And part of a crazy amazing adventure.
As everything ells I do.
Am BURSTING of excitement about it!
Been waiting for such long time.
Longed for it.
Yet, savored every step of it.
For SO long.
And finally, it's here.
Finding it really, really (and probably unnecessary) hard to touch ground as I start writing!
A couple of month ago, I decided to go back to LA - the one place on this planet that I know for sure is holy ground to me and my creativity. It's where I create, flourish, thrive and feel at my absolute highest, all at once.
Mega powers going on here.
Not only because of the wild and absolutely stunning nature with everything you can imagine of super powers like daily earth quakes, magical LA light, sunsets, space's, clean green medicine foods, packed bountiful farmers markets all year around..
The WIDE OPEN, WIIIDE OPEN Pacific ocean, fields and mountains.
But also just because there's that pull inside.
Then, the Desert.
Dry, grounding red earth.
Sage, tumbleweed... the words that comes to mind, are streaming away..
Yet, here you have it. Again. Of some sort.
A big and bold desire - The City of Angels.
Always been there. Always felt it.
In fact, thanks to my Dad, sitting in the backseat of his car.
Going on long architectural trips together with our small family.
Up along the coast.
Experiencing light and space of California.
Wright, Lautner, Schindler.
I really am not sure I have the right words for it all.
That's how grand.
They say people forget what you say, but they will never forget how you made them feel.
Expansion beyond measure.
And with that being said, just wishing you a grand weekend!
The backside of all table linens are signed and stamped like this! I'm in my studio in Downtown Los Angeles, wearing the 'Tea Chemise' from my collection 'Replica 2013' which is hand dyed, hand printed (hand drawn by signed, inspired by a french print from the 20's) with a small pen of indigo.

I have been wanting to share some pictures of the QUILT & STRIPES project that I worked on all of 2013 - A collaboration between Mads Norgaard and I, Handmade by the sweetest production ladies at Place Du Bleu in Copehagen.
We embarked on the project in early spring '13 and this is the result! The quilts have been made out of jersey remnants from Norgaards iconic 101 striped T-shirt, originally designed by Jorgen Norgaard in '67.
The pattern is made out of a repeated form that occurs as a remnant in the production of the T-shirts. All quilts have been laid op by hand, carefully composed in colors and stripes and filled with organic wadding with Oko-tex 100 cotton on the back.
A happy saturday to all you sweet ones. It's super cold in Copenhagen for the moment and might be the perfect time for being tucked in one of these, actually :) xo l.u.

Happy new year from Esalen Institute - A memory from a visit back in 2011 where we spend a couple of days up the coast in California at Esalen Institute. Recharging, reading, star gazing, whale watching and eating the most delishious (and treasured) whole foods from Esalen's own gardens, grown right above the Pacific Ocean.
Here's a note to all of you sweet readers - Thank you so much for stopping by, for your sweet mentions , comments and support! I hope you all get a beaming joyful 2014 PACKED with all kinds of aflluence and magic! xo l.u
