You raise an interesting question. Some years ago Jon Thompson suggested that the alternating stripes fo flatweave and pile on ak juvals helped prevent them from sliding off each other when they were stacked horizontally. I don't knowwhat, if anything, ever became of that suggestion.
The idea has some problems:
1. The stripes are only on one face; the suggested function would work much better with striped front and back.
2. That can't possibly be the function for little things like the kap, which wouldn't have been stacked horizontally.
Still, there could be something more than just decoration to the layout.
