Celebrate Tradition: Bon Odori this Weekend

Our vintage shibori obiage tie can also be used as a scarf.

Come to Momo and get ready for another colorful cultural event in the International District.

July 20th -21st, the Seattle Betsuin Buddhist Temple is hosting the Obon Festival and Bon Odori dance. Obon is a Japanese Buddhist family reunion holiday celebrated to honor ones’ ancestors. At this celebration you’ll find traditional Japanese food for sale, a beer garden with live jazz, taiko drummers and of course, Bon Odori dancing.
For more information, visit their website.

Thea Starr hair accessories to ornament your locks.
Momo was graced by a visit from designer Thea Starr this morning. She was kind enough to drop off a terrific selection of kimono hair accessories, including some extra-fancy hair prongs, called ‘kanzashi,’ for the upcoming festivities.

Momo men, pull on a “Powered by Gohan” tees designed by Hawaiian-born Brandt Fuse and dance the carbos off with humorous Asian flair with these quirky (and comfy) shirts.

Fun, funny Sumofish tees. 
 Join us in the International District for another lively cultural activity! We'll see you there.
