One more comment from Pierre:

We can find pretty similar (sainak-like ) borders also in a number of Karatchoph Kazak rugs, including this

and also in both rugs’ field below

No idea what Karatchoph ethnicity could be, however Kara- / Qara- = black sounds turkic enough, while tchoph sounds more like occidental influenza.
