"But you said before that “The feel is not supple but stiff” and the palette in your photos looks much more on the red side than the Tchitchaktu, so discarded the possibility!"

Beg pardon, Filiberto, I did. I hadn't checked my earlier post so went back and felt it again and it is stiffish but I have to confess that I don't think I'd know what 'dead wool' feels like. I would imagine it to feel very hard and allowing no floppiness at all. I'm sorry, I know how frustrating this is. But you're also right about the colour. It's more on the orange side in real life than shows in the photo.

Fascinating story behind these rugs, though, and one of the most impressive uses of 'dead' material. Don't know how the rugs might stand up to heavy usage on the floor though.
