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.
