Love & Other Necessities.
Home for the spiritually curious.

Moving on the crossroads of spirituality and creativity Love & Other Necessities aspires to inspire freedom in the minds of as many people as possible. We are on a mission to bring some more love and positivity into this reality by any means possible: art, design, fashion, poetry, freestyle creativity, free thinking and lots of LOVE.

Freedom drawings is our first project and next to wearables we look to present more positive products with the drawings in the near future as well as developing other love projects.

Each made-to-order garment is printed with a Freedom Drawing that carries the energy of a spiritual lesson which gives wearing it an extra dimension. Freedom drawings came into being during travels on this amazing planet and into the world of meditation and spirituality.

They are never planned, always free-style, made in the moment and straight from the heart. They just happen, like everything else really.

The Freedom Drawings series, the idea for L&ON Necessities and the dream to share all of this with the world originated during my travels around the globe and into the world of meditation, spirituality and pure, freestyle creativity.


Every item we sell is made on demand to support the dream of a no waste future that is why we have a Mindful Returns policy. We encourage you to really think before you buy, consider and check the sizes and descriptions to create minimal risk on return.

Production and delivery of an item takes on average less then two weeks.


10% of our profits go to with other positive projects that have grown from love and which are actively contributing to this planet becoming a more harmonious, healthy and loving place.
