There are Qashqai shepherds in loose long lined cloaks,
tending and rearing sheep in the natural pasture, Qashqai women, wearing beautiful
costumes with vibrant colours, come to milk the sheep from which they can
produce dairy products. As their lifestyle is in accordance with seasonal migration,
they have learned over centuries how to have a self-sufficient life. If not
busy with daily duties, women and girls of tribes spend their time producing
handicrafts, mostly weaving Persian tribal rugs, Kilims, and Jajims on
horizontal looms. They live in the shelters which are made of hand-woven black goat
wool blankets named Siah Chador. Being lucky enough, you can take part in a
wedding ceremony, the wedding may last several days and is accompanied with the
continuous serving of tea and food, listening to music, horse riding and wrestling
contests and the Qashqai folk dance (women dance around fire while holding a
colorful kerchiefs in both hands and moving shoulder to shoulder next to each
other in a circle). Our tour provides you with an opportunity to experience a
traditional tribal life far from the hectic pace of modern cities.
