From Japan, with Love

Say “kon'nichiwa!” to the latest addition to our ‘Found only at Momo’ family: Cream Company Kyoto. As we speak, Momo is the only place outside of Japan where you can buy these lovely leather goods. Hand made by generations of artisans in Kyoto, the family is dedicated to superior quality, substantial leathers and a signature color palette.

You may have seen the pouches at Momo before. Originally, Momo Mama discovered them at a design shop in Kyoto and purchased one personally. She loved it so much, she conspired with a friend in Japan to bring them to Seattle. But, as things go, that didn’t last, so she devised another plan of importing the cheery leather goods to the US.

Seven years later: the wallet that started it all.
After hours of sleuthing and sussing, rounds of emails with an interpreter, and the conveyance of planes, trains and automobiles, we present to you our third (and hopefully not last) capsule collection. All three pieces — snap pouch/wallet, crossbody bag and roomy tote — boast saturated hues in simple, elegant shapes.

Snap pouches are great for organizing the inside of your purse!
The perfect size: 4.5" x 6.5"

We only have three of these fabulous totes with a large zippered interior pocket
and two open pockets that are perfect for slipping a cell phone into.

We are loving this crossbody bag!
Just toss in your essentials and head out for the day. 

Although it was a challenging adventure to get these beauties to Seattle, it was worth it! We think they’re very special and we’re pretty sure that you will, too.
