WELCOME TO HOONARTS FAIR TRADE: YOUR DOOR TO CENTRAL ASIA
We invite you to join us on a cultural and artistic journey to the heart of the Great Silk Road. Connect with master artisans in exotic places, find unique products that will excite your imagination, and make a real difference in the world with every purchase.
HoonArts is dedicated to bringing unique, high quality handmade arts and crafts from Tajikistan and other countries along the Great Silk Road to the US market, using Fair Trade principles. "HoonArts" is the fusion of the Tajik word "hoonar" or "hunar," meaning "art" or "craft," and the English word "arts." We hope that HoonArts will serve as the first major handicrafts bridge between Tajikistan and the US, helping to preserve and promote traditional Tajik handicrafts while also promoting economic development for the artisans, many of whom are impoverished women in rural mountain areas.
HoonArts Fair Trade has been accepted as a member of the Fair Trade Federation! As members of the Fair Trade Federation, we make the deepest commitment to 360° fair trade. We undergo rigorous screening and strive to create positive change through all of our work: socially, economically, and environmentally. We work with small farmers and artisans in holistic partnerships built on trust.These relationships go beyond ensuring fair wages and safe working conditions--they empower producers to strengthen their communities and grow their businesses sustainably.
We're so excited to be able to proudly display the Fair Trade Federation emblem:
