Basque in Green Style

Bilbao, Spain, mid-’90s. A small clothing concern with a big concept launches its first line: eco-conscious and socially responsible tees made from organic and recycled materials. The company? Skunkfunk.

In classic Skunkfunk teal, the ‘Gaxi’ is reminiscent of Jackie O frocks. 
Now known globally for their intense focus on sustainability, Skunkfunk is one of the elite Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified clothing makers, meeting and exceeding the incredibly rigorous guidelines of the organization. Skunkfunk monitors their clothing production from start to finish – from farmers to weavers, manufacturers to shippers, with the aim of achieving 100% transparency to their consumers. 

Soft-as-a-cloud drawstring cowl-neck has playful neon details.
Not only is Skunkfunk a company you can feel good about supporting for environmental reasons, they are also creatively progressive. Each season they collaborate with different artists in a variety of fields, creating lines that are stylish and au courant. 

We are loving the Asian-inspired geometrics!

‘Rebecca’ raincoat is perfection. Water-resistant waxed cotton, secret hood that zips into a structured collar, adjustable back belt buttons, patch AND slash pockets, and a completely unique feature: interior elastic ‘backpack’ straps that let you sling your jacket across your back without fear of losing it!
Momo has received an abundant collection of Skunkfunk for fall, ranging from dresses with a retro-mod flair to Japanese-inspired skirts and cowl-neck tops — truly something to appeal to every taste. Plus, the European sizing runs smaller than US, perfect for our petite customers. Drop by Japantown for a trip to Spain!
