جامعه قشقایی یکی از اقوام متنوع ایران است که زبان، آداب و رسوم و میراث منحصر به فرد خود را به نمایش می‌گذارد. در مناطق مختلف ایران، در جنوب به ویژه استان فارس، جایی که ایل قشقایی عمدتاً در آن سکونت دارند، انبوهی از لباس‌های محلی ایرانی پدیدار می‌شود که اغلب به عنوان لباس سنتی، لباس محلی یا لباس ترکی شناخته می‌شوند. این لباس‌ها به‌طور عمده از پارچه‌های بومی ساخته شده‌اند و شاهکاری از جوهر فرهنگی این قبیله هستند که با نقش‌ها و طرح‌های متمایز مشخص شده‌اند و به‌گونه‌ای طراحی شده‌اند که با اقلیم محلی سازگار باشند. علیرغم مداخلات تاریخی دولت، که در برخی مواقع در طول قرن بیستم، گرایش‌های مد غربی را بر لباس‌های سنتی ترجیح می‌داد، جذابیت این سبک‌های لباس بومی به عنوان سنگ بنای میراث فرهنگی ایل قشقایی تا قرن بیست و یکم باقی ماند. هدف این پروژه تاریخ شفاهی، مستندسازی زنان معاصر قشقایی و تجربیات آنها از پوشش سنتی به روش تاریخ شفاهی است.
