Taiwanese Strings Attached

I unearthed more of the boxes my grandfather's from when he moved from Taiwan. He was the O.C.D. one who collected Whole Foods napkins and take out containers. I opened plastic bags within plastic bags to discover string. Twine, rope, red ribbon used to wrap food stuffs in Taiwan, it's crazy to imagine that he spent cash shipping these scrappy things across the Pacific. But they make for a colorful collection.
