The Carpet Makers by Andreas Eschbach

A good, strange SF novel. It's in the form of a series of loosely connected stories about people in a far future intergalactic empire. The central mystery is that of the carpet makers, a caste of people who spend their lives making one carpet from the hair of their wives and daughters to give to the Emperor. Odd, interesting.
