Stone Pastures (aka Textures)

Stone Pastures (aka Textures)

Textures details the extraordinary life of a struggling Nomadic family, who struggle to rear pashmina goats as they live on the Himalayan plateau of Ladakh - a high altitude cold desert, the most inhospitable of environments.This struggle contains a paradox: Ladakh's gritty, rocky conditions gave rise to the finest of materials, pashmina wool. Produced by the nomads' goats as a warm undercoat, this is the raw material for luxurious Kashmiri shawls, and the only source of income for the poor nomads. This film follows the life of these extraordinary people over the course of nine months.
