The DIOP Top, made of 100% cotton, is the origin of our company, and in some ways our flagship product. It is inspired by the custom clothes our co-founder Mapate’s mother would make for him. With prints and patterns inspired by the African diaspora, our clothes are made to be dressed up and down. DIOP is proud to offer truly one-of-a-kind garments made to stand out from the crowd.


This pattern is inspired by Bogolanfini (or mud cloth), a handmade Malian cotton fabric dyed with fermented mud that dates back to the 12th century. Though traditionally rendered in white on black, our pattern features a brighter navy that delivers what customers call a “neat, clean staple” to your closet.


When styling this piece, it’s best to avoid black or other significantly darker colors. Cooler solid tones, like green or blue-violet, work best with this piece.

Pair it with your favorite khaki chinos and a clean white sneaker, and you’ll be pounding the pavement in an outfit that anyone would be lucky to have in their rotation.
