The Le Top Story
For over 35 years, Le Top has been creating quality playwear that reflects the joy and innocence of childhood. As a family-owned company based out of sunny Concord, California—just across the bay from San Francisco—Le Top proudly designs clothing and accessories for children ages 0-7.
After so many years of selling our irresistible and whimsical children’s clothing in specialty boutiques and upscale department stores all across the U.S., it’s hard to believe that Le Top was originally founded almost by accident. Back in 1978, Paul Lun, whose family had already been in the apparel business in Hong Kong and Malaysia for over 50 years, was happily earning his master’s degree in finance in California. As a natural entrepreneur, he jumped at his brother’s suggestion that he jumpstart his finance career by selling some of the family’s novelty T-shirts in the U.S.
In those days, people were tiring of the polyester-infused ’70s, and Paul’s thick, quality combed cotton interlock shirts were a welcomed change. To this day Le Top is still known for the soft, natural fiber fabrics that we design and manufacture ourselves.
Almost from the start, Chris Lun joined her husband at Le Top, and voila! A family business was born. Le Top expanded to offer clothing for preemies, newborns, infants, toddlers, and children (up to size 7). Today, we offer two collections encompassing the entire spectrum of a young child’s wardrobe needs— Le Top and Le Top Baby—as well as select accessories and plush toys.
Every product decision Le Top has made has come from listening to our customers, hearing what they love, and envisioning what they would like to see next.
