Frequently Asked Questinos

Are your tops unisex?

What does DIOP mean?

DIOP is the last name of one of our founders Mapate. It's a common patronym from the Cayor region of Senegal, where his father is from. According to Wolof oral tradition, the name actually traces its origins back to present-day Sudan among the Nuer and Dinka people, where it is totemic, referring to the Grey Crowned Crane.
