Carpets that make no sound

So here we are back at Maple & Co. shopping for carpets and rugs to further furbish our beloved Corrientes 348. But one would think that in 1924 selection and availability of high quality products would be limited to a remarkable few. Such was not the case. Let us take a look at what types of carpets and rugs Maple & Co. made available for custom-manufacture during this period:

A Wilton deep-pile Persian from the 1930s.
Carpets: Indian, Mirzapore, Masulipatam, Agra, Ellore, Lahore, Persian, Ferahand, Serabend, Turkey, Nomad and Khorassan.

Rugs: Persian, Turkoman, Daghestan, Ferahand, Yhordes, Koula, Turkey, Kurd, Moorish, Mirzapore and Japanese.

Prices for these rugs and carpets were not advertised by Maple & Co. because they were not good they carried in their inventories. These products were manufactured upon request and against exact specifications (size, colour, nap, weave, borders, etc.) from the prospective buyers.

Maple & Co. did however carry large selections of ready made rugs and carpets which, although not to the same standards as the hand-made ones, still were of high quality. Here are some examples and their selling prices in 1924 Argentine pesos:

Stout heavy qualities for reception rooms from 1,15 pesos per meter
Extra quality from 1,43 pesos per meter

Plain Felts:
Plain felts in all the new art colourings, best quality, 1,25m wide, from 1,85 pesos per meter. Plain felts for a suitable carpet where a low toned effect is desired, while they are invaluable either as a basis for oriental rugs, or as surrounds for indian, Persian, Turkey or Axminster carpets. Plain felt is also an excellent material for covering stairs or corridor carpets.
