The Pulan folk costume originates from Pulan county in Southwest China's Tibet autonomous region. It continues to be a traditional garment worn in celebration for over a millennium.

The most exquisite of all the Pulan garments is called the "Peacock costume"– only seven are known to exist, preserved by seven local families. Weighing 25 kilos, this unique costume is usually decorated with rare metal and jewels like gold, silver, agate, turquoise, coral, and pearls.
