This question would be much more valuable and answerable if you'd include information about what this book is, who wrote it, etc., as well as whatever you can say about where you heard about the idea for which you're seeking an origin. – Isaac Moses Jun 12 '14 at 14:23
I assume the origin is the guys who wanted to sell them as key chains. They were partnering with the red string dealers. – Y ez Jun 12 '14 at 17:40
@IsaacMoses I don't think he knows that either....judaism.stackexchange.com/q/40281/5323 was asked by him at around the same time.... – Shokhet Jun 12 '14 at 17:58
@Shokhet could you please summarize what Rabbi Shachter says there about this issue? – Jewels Jun 13 '14 at 9:10
