Count the Days

Looking forward to a new year? Ready to say goodbye 2016, hello 2017? Look no further: the future is at Momo, with two thoughtful, artistic, locally hand-crafted calendars to meet your day-tracking needs. 

An annual favorite (for self and as gifts) are our Ilee Letterpress calendars, designed with 12 special letterpressed cards that tuck upright into a jewel case. In honor of the upcoming Year of the Rooster, artist Ja Teuber has hidden a tiny rooster on each page. 

New for Momo: a Bainbridge-based collaboration between collage artist Patty Rogers and award-winning poet John Willson. These banner calendars are limited edition, signed and numbered – a lovely gift for the artist or writer in your life.

A calendar makes a tasteful, practical gift for nearly anyone on your list. Not only is it a constant reminder that one is loved, at the end of the year, it goes away, leaving only the memory of happy days.

Eco-chic Michigan

Brand new to Momo: introducing Conscious Clothing!

Founded in 2003 by wife/husband team Rose and Doug Phillips, Conscious Clothing springs from a desire to create apparel that is ethically produced and environmentally friendly — and super cute, too. Made from sustainable organic fabrics, inks and water-based dyes, each garment is cut, sewn, washed, dyed, tagged, ironed and shipped from their small studio in Rockford, Michigan.

Momo loves the easy wearability of our capsule collection. We also love feeling good — inside and out — about this conscientious, mindfully-crafted clothing.

“Winter Nomad” is the epitome of comfort.
A snap funnel neck gives you multiple options and
the hemp/organic cotton blend is warm and soft. 

The “Backyard” tunic is crafted of finely woven organic linen —
which, in Seattle, we love year ’round. Throw on a toasty cardigan,
leggings and boots and you’re set. Plus it has POCKETS! 

The “Winter Snap” is also hemp/organic cotton.
Deep pockets, top-to-bottom snaps and a hood
make this fleecy layer as practical as it is pretty.
