Rikki Quintana is the owner of HoonArts Fair Trade. She grew up in Santa Fe, New Mexico, attended the University of New Mexico, where she majored in Spanish, and went on to Law School at Stanford Law School. After a 31-year career in business law, Rikki returned to her real passion—international communication and global connections that bring the world closer together.
HoonArts Fair Trade is one of only three Fair Trade Federation members working with the artisans of Central Asia, and is the first and only company working to build a sustainable US market for handcrafted products from Tajikistan. The business grew out of Rikki’s volunteer work in hosting short-term professional exchange delegations from around the world. She considers HoonArts her contribution to building a more peaceful, prosperous, and connected global community for all of us.
