About Us

┬áThe seed for Calabash was planted 2 doors from the world famous Apollo Theatre in Harlem, NY in 1976. As the counter help at Pyramid, her parent’s herbal shop & juice bar, Sunyatta trained alongside master herbalists learning the medicinal value of teas & spices. Since being able to peek over the shop counter, she has served NYC residents alongside entertainment luminaries. Sunyatta accompanied her family on tea and spice buying trips, all the while dreaming of a shop featuring the fabrics & decor of those exotic destinations.

Taking ‘green living’ out of sandals, sliding it into stilettos, the modern incarnation of Calabash found its sexiness in DC. Hey, why should naughty congressmen have all the fun?
