The broken one is an image, as well as a record of a personal ritual I heard about a long time ago, in my childhood. The ritual is carried out in secret; one has to glance at the chosen, beloved person and tie a knot on a red thread,which is to make someone fall in love with you.
Some places on the fabric have red threads with knots hanging over it, also chains and safety pins.
