Default Chodor dyslyks and indigo dyed brown wool

Recently I was able to acquire a matched pair of these from Michael Phillips. Upon publishing these here on Turkotek, I believe these are the only ones ever published. Here is an image of them:

and the back:

Another interesting feature of these pieces is that the brown stripes used as borders are black on the back. Within the pile of these stripes one can see deep indigo used to dye the brown wool black. I believe this is the first instance of seeing this on a chodor piece. It is the first time that I have seen this phenomenon although it has been reported many times. I do not believe that it is fading since no other color has faded. I believe that the brown wool was dyed without a mordant and the indigo rubbed off (after all, camels do kneel).
