New Ikat Scarves Arrive from Uzbekistan

by Rikki Quintana May 15, 2020

Check out the brand new handwoven ikat scarves that just arrived from Uzbekistan! You can shop locally and have a global impact with these gorgeous silk and silk/cotton scarves--they make the perfect unforgettable (yet ethical) gift in these crazy times.

HoonArts founder Rikki Quintana takes you there to open the latest package that just arrived from Craft Studio IkatUz in Margilan, Uzbekistan. It will take a while for these scarves to get photographed and uploaded to the website, so if something catches your eye, simply email Rikki at rikkiquintana@hoonarts.com. There are only one or two of each pattern, so they will go fast. Each of these new scarves will be available for $49.99. Free delivery or pickup is available in Albuquerque, or they can be shipped to your doorstep around the country or the world.

Since this is Thanksgiving week in the US, I've been taking stock of the many things for which I'm grateful. (I keep a daily gratitude journal where I record five things I'm thankful for, which must be different from the five things noted the day before. This practice, recommended by my fantastic business coach Tania Vasallo, has helped me get through the craziness of the last few years.) My trip to the 'Stans in September and October ranks very high on the top 25 list of gratitude-inducing e...

I love food, but I’m not a true “foodie.” I rarely take photos of food for social media (though my daughter and I do exchange text photos of extra-indulgent desserts). I don’t collect recipes because I rarely cook these days. But food is such an integral part of any travel experience that I thought you would enjoy this “food tour” of Central Asia—incomplete as it may be. The photos included in this blog are . . .
