Maybe there is a way we can find out who will be creating the lampas silk for the walls of the mauve room.  Possibly they will be working form an original piece. 
I recall having read somewhere that rolls of the silk were kept at Tsarskoe Selo for refurbishment prior to the revolution.

Been discussed in other threads. Charles Berger in Paris still exists and did give an estimate 15 years ago to reproduce the Lampas for 1000 euro a meter, clearly would be more today. There are small examples of the original material, as Kochumov cut them and kept them.  The Berger firm quote might not fit into the restoration budget and the Museum might find another firm to reproduce it for less money
