The article discusses the origin of thread and its connection to the nature of the universe. According to the Pueblo legend, there was a Spider Woman who spun two threads and crossed them to the four directions. From this, she created the heaven, earth, water, plants and animals. In Egypt , threads symbolized as binding force of matriarchal law, while ancient Japanese culture provides evidence of binding as primary structure or used to signify land occupation as binding and represents the creation of universe from chaos. Moreover, the thread folklore stands for the whole world which is knitted and bound within itself and all living creatures, both male and female and every part of it, will work together by reason of their mutual love.
