Evangelista has been giving her fans and followers a glimpse of her sourcing process in Sorsogon through her vlogs and social media posts.
The actress has been personally visiting artisans in the province to collaborate with them for her home and fashion collection.
On Wednesday, she said she will soon release a handwoven rug featuring her design.
"A woven edition of my design coming to life. Couldn't have done this without the amazing and talented Sorsoganon artists," she said.
Aside from promoting the products of Sorsogon, Evangelista has also been working on putting up an animal welfare facility in the province.
