Rebecca Looten, native Texas and owner of Mon­soon Imports, spent her child­hood liv­ing in Indone­sia and Ecuador, where her pas­sion­ate affair with adven­ture and travel began. Mon­soon Imports was born in 2003 as a way to meld art, beauty, and travel into a busi­ness. Monsoon’s goal is to pro­vide unique pieces that tell sto­ries of ages long since gone to enrich people’s lives through their his­tory. Search­ing the globe reg­u­larly for new finds antique doors, unusual wood and stone archi­tec­tural frag­ments, tex­tile print­ing blocks, reli­gious relics, cor­bels, fab­rics, repur­posed arti­facts, and much more find their way into the ware­house. Mon­soon has been called the Indian Mar­ket of Austin. The smell of teak per­me­ates the air and the touch of mar­ble feels cool to your skin on a  hot summer’s day.
