Dashiki is a Yoruba word that means shirt. The cap worn with a dashiki is call a kufi. Sokoto are the pants worn with a dashiki, and are not named after the city of Sokoto, in Nigeria.

The dashiki is a colorful men's garment widely worn in West Africa that covers the top half of the body. It has formal and informal versions and varies from simple draped clothing to fully tailored suits. Traditional female attire is called a caftan, or kaftan. A common form is a loose-fitting pullover garment, with an ornate V-shaped collar, and tailored and embroidered neck and sleeve lines.
