Rikki Quintana:

Rikki founded HoonArts Fair Trade
in a leap of faith, after retiring from her law career. Starting from
“zero” as the first to build a US market for Tajikistani handicrafts,
HoonArts is now a verified fair trade business, working with artisan
groups in 3 Central Asian countries. With customers on 4 continents,
HoonArts is helping to empower over 100 artisans, mostly rural women.
Rikki is passionate about using her long-term partnerships with master
artists to open a doorway to this region, and give her clients unique
and personalized products, travel, and educational experiences they
can’t get anywhere else.
