Mother's Day 2021 Collection-Up Close & Personal

IF YOU MISSED THE LIVE STREAM, HERE'S YOUR CHANCE TO WATCH THE RECORDING!

Does shopping for a Mother's Day gift or a birthday gift for a special woman in your life seem like a "social emergency"? Would you like to give that special woman a gift this year that will make her feel loved, confident, and connected to her own unique sense of beauty, values, and the world?

We set up this live-streaming event so that your shopping is a breeze. No one needs any more stress than they are already experiencing!

Denise Bucci, our "Chief Collaborator," who has been part of the HoonArts team from the evening HoonArts was born, joined founder Rikki Quintana for this inaugural HoonArts Live event. We shared some stories from HoonArts' history. We also showed off the beautiful and unique products we selected for the carefully curated Mother's Day Collection.

Although Mother's Day has now come and gone, you can still choose one of these fabulous items for that special lady on her special day. We also provided a sneak peek of some of the one-of-a-kind products that are not yet available for sale on our website.

This video is the perfect chance to get a closer look at some of our favorite products. We know that shopping online for handmade products can be challenging when you can't touch and feel the item. Sometimes you just want to get a better view or understand more details about a particular product before you push that "Buy Now" button. And you'll also hear more about the creation of these fabulous items and the artists who made them!

We hope you enjoy this up close and personal peek at the exotic world of Central Asia!

One of the great joys of exploring the Silk Road art of suzani embroidery is learning the deep meaning behind each of the traditional patterns. When Munira Akilova visited Albuquerque in April, we recorded a short video in which she explained every element of the design she created in our Pomegranate Wall Hanging.

Bread is Life and Art in Tajikistan
Bread is Life and Art in Tajikistan

by Rikki Quintana June 16, 2022

Poverty in Tajikistan has been a recurring challenge for hundreds of years, so feeding families has always been important. Bread or “non” is a precious staple, and it is frequently offered to guests as a symbol of hospitality. In rural areas, bread may make up a significant portion of daily caloric intake. If a Tajik has food but not non, he will often say he is out of food. Because bread is so precious, it’s important to avoid letting bread drop on the ground and you never throw it away. In...

Collaboration in Action: Storytelling from a Different Angle
Collaboration in Action: Storytelling from a Different Angle

by Rikki Quintana June 10, 2022

Collaboration is one of HoonArts' core values. (The other is authenticity. Stay tuned for future posts on that topic.) What does that look like in action? Or, as (my personal hero) Brene Brown would say, "How do we operationalize that value?"  As I tackle every item on my never-ending "to do" list, I ask myself, "Does this further collaboration in some way? Or, how can I bring collaboration to this task?"
