There is little doubt Anatolian rugs and Turkmen rugs have strong relationships and most probably are branches from the same earlier tree.
RK's plans, still completely unfulfilled, to build a data base of dye and fiber analysis testings would be the most effective way to begin to understand this connection.
But, alas, rugDumb would rather support a clown like jorg rageth and his bogus C14 testing. And that rag hali, the neutered Textile Museum, other institutions like the Met in NY, LACMA in LA or the BFA in Boston, and all the ineffective rug "societies" could get together to begin to fund such a project.
Ha, Ha, no one cares or will get off their butts to do anything, and therefore rugDUMB languishes.
Frankly, we have given up even thinking this might happen.
