Nepal Earthquake Relief
We are deeply disheartened to see the effects of the recent earthquake in Nepal. Many of our dearest fair trade artisan groups work in Nepal and news of the damage has been trickling in from all of them. We are happy to say that so far no lives have been lost, but many have lost their homes and workplaces. We’ve compiled a list of the news we’ve received from our artisan partners as well as several funds that will go directly to helping the artisans as they begin to rebuild their lives.

Did you get a chance to meet Thandi (right), member of the Zambian Carnivore Program? She was in the store with Marissa of Dsenyo to talk about their partnership recycling snare wire into jewelry to save wildlife in Zambia. Read more about it here.
Mad Mats are in stock! There are some excellent new patterns and colors this season and they’re great for putting out on the porch or indoors.

Momentum is now part of the Fair Trade Winds family. The name will stay the same and we’ll be keeping the store stocked with the same great fair trade merchandise (plus a few new things) loyal customers and visitors have come to expect and love!
Every product Momentum carries is crafted by the human hand, tells a story and provides employment opportunities for artisan groups around the world.
Unique, quality, hand-crafted items. All fair trade, and very reasonably priced compared to other fair trade stores/ items I've seen around the area.Teri P.
I am inspired by the creative beauty of their products and their true commitment to fair trade. Every product has an amazing story!Michelle B.
The products sold here are very unique with a global conscience. Great place to buy special gifts for the special people in your life.Kelly K.
Quite possibly the finest retail store on the planet!Matt P.
We were doing some local shopping in Boulder and happened upon this store for the first time. Once entered we were immediately greeted and advised that everything in the store supports Fair Trade all over the world. That is wonderful and so nice to hear of a store that really supports local artists with Fair Trade.
Lots of unique jewelry, knic knacs, note pads, coasters, and little things for your home. I found a couple beautiful items that I might be back for in the near future. The people here are top notch and really love what that store stands for. This alone makes me want to support this local business. Stop in and look around for some unique treasures.
I'm fairly certain that Momentum is the coolest shop on the planet. My husband and I dropped a lot of money here, but also got a lot of neat things as gifts and for ourselves. Keep in mind that everything in the store is fair trade certified, which means it's all ethically sourced and something you can definitely feel good about purchasing (unlike a lot of other goods). They have beautiful bracelets and other jewelry (I got a few of the Tagua bracelets for myself & family members), home decor items, bags, paper goods, and much more.Carrie O.
