Que Chula es Puebla

The China Poblana is an image of Mexico’s grace and beauty. Originally from the state of Puebla, her costume has grown to be a national symbol, and her song calls to Puebla’s most praised cities and the goods each produces. The costuming is hand-made in New York City taking inspiration from the bright fabrics of the Indian community. The China Poblana was an Asian woman, perhaps South Asian, and we find this in her dress.
