There are Qashqai shepherds in loose long lined cloaks, tending and rearing sheep in the natural pasture, Qashqai women, wearing beautiful costumes with vibrant colors, 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).
