Thanks for your thought-provoking post.
Vis-a-vis "one nit". I don't think I said that striped designs were nonexistent among Turkmen stuff. I own an ak-juval and a fragment of another, and what I guess we would have to call an ak-mafrash and a Saryk khorjin with striped design, so I am aware that these things exist. The Yomud also produced some striped rugs. But all in all, I think you would agree that these are outside the Turkmen mainstream.
