Chinese Thread Books

Chinese Thread Books or Zhen Xian Bao is a traditional folk art practised by women in remote areas of south west China. They are books made of folded paper used to store embroidery threads and other small items. Ruth Smith travelled to China to research this tradition and has written books on the subject she calls them ‘Folded Secrets’
