Marian Rivera is a Marian devotee, which is why she launches Flora Vida Home today, December 8, 2020, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.

The GMA-7 actress has been creating flower arrangements under Flora Vida, and has now expanded the brand's offerings to create Flora Vida Home.

Flora Vida Home offers furniture, pillow cases, table runners, placemats, coasters, curtains, and many other items that Marian personally designed.

Creating a home line has been a long-time dream, and it was only these past few months that Marian had enough time to focus on this passion project.

Acting jobs take a backseat, but she still has the weekly program Tadhana, which she tapes from home.

When is she going to star in a series?

Marian says in a virtual mediacon on Monday, December 7, "Hindi ko masasagot iyan dahil makakalabas lang ako pag sobrang ligtas na, alam mo na magiging maayos ang lahat. Kasi, ang hirap-hirap talaga.

“Siguro, kaligtasan muna. Kasi, sabi ko nga, pag ako ang nagkasakit, naku, hindi ko alam kung ano ang mangyayari sa kanila. Kasi, ako lahat ang nag-aasikaso sa bahay, lalo na sa mga anak ko.

“Unti-unti, tingnan natin. Kung maayos na, bakit hindi?

“Pero pag medyo tagilid pa ang mga pagkakataon at nangyayari sa labas, siguro sa bahay muna ako. Tutal pinapayagan naman ako ng GMA na gawin ang Tadhana sa loob ng bahay muna.”

MARIAN RIVERA'S FLORA VIDA HOME

Back to Marian's latest business venture, most of the clients that order from Flora Vida Home are the long-time customers who order floral arrangements from Flora Vida.

One chair that she designed is priced at PHP50,000 and up.

While it is made with imported materials that she purchased from Europe, the furniture is made by the craftsmen of Paete, Laguna.

Marian narrates, “Ito kasi iyong panahon nung nagta-travel ako sa ibang bansa. Dun ako nakapag-explore, kasi siyempre, kapag dito ka sa Manila, ang ginagawa natin, halos puro work-work, di ba?

“Pag nakapunta ako sa ibang bansa, doon nag-spark ang interest ko iyong mga fabric na sinasabi ko sa sarili ko sana balang araw, magkaroon ako ng ganito.

“Iyong mga fabric na iyong vintage na rustic feel na masabi mong timeless siya.”

This is also Marian's way of helping provide jobs to the craftsmen of Paete.

“Sa pagkakataong ito, sabi ko nga, hitting two birds in one stone ako. Gusto ko iyong fabric from Europe, 'tapos nilikha ng gawang Pinoy na pinagsama ko siya.

“So very happy ako sa kinalabasan dahil gawang Pinoy pa rin.”
