Unan Imports

Hours: Monday-Saturday 11 AM-7 PM, Sunday open by appointment

This two-room garden-level shop specializes in arts and crafts, body-care products, and clothing, mostly from Kenya and west and central Africa. Alongside bags made of kente cloth and knit Rastafarian caps hang carved wood jewelry and dangling mobiles of human figures twisted from straw. The body products include several kinds of pure unrefined shea butter as well as black soap (made from the ashes of leaves, bark, and cocoa pods mixed with shea butter or palm oil, then cured), which is noted for its deep-cleansing properties.
