Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, April 27) — The country's vibrant textile industry has shown its hopeful hue during the national costume presentation of this year's Miss Universe Philippines pageant.

The segment broadcast on the Miss Universe Philippines' TikTok page on Tuesday showed the finalists parading Filipino artistry through the colorful weavings.

Under the theme "HABI," the national costume presentation required candidates to have 30% of their ensembles be made up of Philippine textiles or weaving.

"Aside from promoting our tourism, the Miss Universe Philippines Organization also aims to promote and put forward Filipino textiles and weavings because these are treasures we can't afford to lose," the organization said in a statement.

"This is an industry we want to continue and help strengthen," it stressed.

The Miss Universe Philippines coronation night is set on Saturday, April 30.
