Maud Villaret, the designer of Toubab Pop-up Store in NYC, explained the naming of her label. Maud used to travel a lot on the African continent. In countries like Gambia, Senegal and Mali, people from Europe/white people are called "Toubab". She liked that term and it seemed somehow fitting to use it for her Africa-inspired accessory label.
