The Tocharians are Uzbeks, it's interesting that the tradition of fine carpets is still dominated by the Uzbeks, Afghans and Persians. Not so surprising then to find a link between wool-producing regions in northern France/Belgium and southern England with the Far East. We tend to forget how massive the market was for hanging carpets and woven tapestries. Worth a king's ransom in some cases.
