Huhu, Torpe!


“Torpe”– the Filipino word for coward, but specifically, a coward in love. You can’t approach someone you like? Torpe. Can’t say a word when your crush passes by? Torpe. Can’t confess? Torpe. And oh, there’s too many of us out here cringing at ourselves for trying to muster the courage to even say “Hi!”


The Torpe Tote was inspired by my friend Charley. Exasperated that I couldn’t even say hi to my college crush she exclaimed “Babae ka na nga! Torpe ka pa!” Unless I said anything, I was hopeless because tbh in Philippine society, the norm is – the guy makes the move. So here’s to all the Torpes, hoping this tote can be a conversation starter.
