The name Dashiki is derived from the Yoruba word “danshiki”, which means shirt. It is usually worn with a hat called “Kurfi” or “Koufia”, which are Yoruba words for hat, and a pair of pants called “Sokoto”, which is the Yoruba word for trousers.

The dashiki has made a huge breakthrough from Africa since the African American culture struggles of the 1960’s where it became a symbol of affirmation, it stood for “black is beautiful,” and signaled a return to African roots.
