Linya-Linya: Best for your #Hugot Needs

#HUGOT – we all know what this word is. Whether it’s about love (actually, love talaga eh!), friendship, food, movies or even just random things around, we can always derive some huge feelings and #hugots out of (almost) everything.

Last week, I stumbled upon Linya-Linya, a local brand that gets inspiration from creative puns and famous #hugot moments. From the name itself, Linya-Linya is all about words but mind you, this brand has a lot of things to offer because they are MORE THAN JUST a statement shirts line. They sell a variety of products from clothes to notebooks, mugs and eco bags and all of these stuff are creatively crafted to suit our taste for some witty and #hugot-filled wordplay and illustrations.

Linya-Linya, started as a humor Facebook (FB) page that gained traction in social media. Its crusade as a retail brand started in 2012 when the group Yabang Pinoy turned Linya-Linya’s kalokohan into t-shirts while giving it a spot at every organized Global Pinoy Bazaar.

It is not surprising that the Linya-Linya brand grew as it first launch its online store on August 2015. The success in cyberspace sprouted its first physical store at U.P. Town Center on November 2015 followed by a second shop at Market! Market! on February 2016.

Last July, Linya-Linya opened two new stores in two major malls – SM Megamall and Glorietta.

Ang kalokohan, sineseryoso din minsan,” said Ali Sangalang, writer and managing partner of Linya-Linya.

“‘Fun-trepreneurs’— that is what we call ourselves, because we believe that we’re not only selling products, but we’re also promoting the fun-loving culture of Filipinos,” Sangalang added. “Our dream is to connect to a wider audience, share tears of joy and laughter with people, and through our original words, art, concepts, and products, significantly contribute to Filipino culture and society. Ultimately, we want to Linyafy the world!

What I love most about Linya-Linya, aside from the fact that is a homegrown brand, is that it reflects the “feels” of today’s Filipinos. We all have things to say but sometimes, it is best when we deliver them in a more creative way.

    Sometimes these shirts and other stuff are what make our day super fun. Reading them gives certain happiness and makes life seem too easy to live. I guess One time or another, there came a time we all wanted to have these hugot lines seen in our shirts, mugs, bags, etc.

    Very nice concept taking on the what Pinoys are into. Hugot. LOL. Ok ang concept talaga, sana ako na lang nakaisip noon pa. Hehe. Kidding aside, ang mga hugot na iyan, meron din lessons. It reminds me too of a post I did before, one of the most read posts on my blog:

    I see. Your post is addressed towards Pinoy readers. You’re lucky I’m one! haha Been reading lots of these “hugot” lines on my facebook newsfeed and most of them really cracks me up. I have to say that the shirt with the pizza and the “Kumilos ng ayon sa ambag” made me giggle. I miss my barkada a lot!!!! Scandinavian humor is different; nothing compares to Pinoy humor!

    And what about this U.P. Town Center?? Is it different from the UP Shopping center near the Kalayaan dorm? Yay. I’m old. 😛

    No wonder why the graphics really looked familiar to me. Stumbled upon theirstall before.

    I guess this just proves that even for bits of humorous ideas, a business concept can be created. And frankly, #hugot was one of the roots why businesses like Linya-Linya was made.

    Kudos to these brainy kids.

    What a fun way to promote Filipino culture. Filipinos nowadays love making hugot and it is already part of our daily lives from facebook, instagram and even our friends there is always hugot lines. Glad that Linya Linya made this kind of concept. Everyone can relate to their products. It is very Filipino and I love it! ?

    Filipinos love hugot lines so this is really a good idea to put into a business. I also enjoy reading different hugot lines in the newsfeed. I’m sure a lot of millenials will patronize these products. I like this line “Kumilos ng Ayon sa Ambag” lol

    Very Pinoy! That’s why I’ve been a fan of their products. And oh, they don’t simply give hugot lines for love but for politics subjects as well. Haha. Hope many filipinos can continue supporting local products like Linya Linya

    This is what I love the most local brands/artists/entrepreneurs. The passion that ignited them to create these in the first place is what brought them to where they are now. It’s always inspiring to see people like them pursuing what they really love.

    Great that you help a brand getting famous more. I never heard about it. So you know if they have plans to come to Europe? Would be cool to see something from the PH here in Sweden.
