Bound feet were a symbol of beauty and status in ancient China. The process was started before the arch of the foot had a chance to develop fully, usually between the ages of 2 and 5. Binding usually started during the winter months since the feet were more likely to be numb, and therefore the pain would not be as extreme. The feet were broken over and over, made smaller and more compact every time.

Shout out to British photographer, Jo Farrell for travelling to far-flung Chinese provinces to track down the last surviving women with bound feet. Such stories of crazy ancient culture should not die untold.
