To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that. I, VICTOR H. JENNINGS, a citizen of the UnitedStates, residing at lVorcester, in the county of Vorcester, State of Massachusetts, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in loven Carriers, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings.
Figure 1 of the drawings is a front elevation of a Woven carrier embodying the invention, with the pockets thereof occupied by various articles.
Fig. 2 is a view in section in the plane indicated by line 2-2, Fig. 1, with the articles removed from the pockets.
The carrier shown in the drawings is a so-called engineers pencil case, designed for convenient attachment to a garment worn by the user, and contrived to hold or carry conveniently for handy use certain of the articles which frequently are used by him. The articles provided for in this instance are five pencils a, a, etc., of different kinds, a pencil eraser, and a so-called alidade b. For the reception of the pencils it is furnished' with pencil-loops c, c, etc. For the reception of the pencil eraser, it is furnished with a short pocket (l, shaped and proportioned to receive an oblong block or strip lthe receptionof the alidade, the carrier is furnished with a long pocket f somewhat larger in its capacity than one of the pencil-loops.
The eraser pocket and alidade pocket are proportioned and formed to fit the eraser "and alidade snugly and hold them securely.
To a certain extent the carrier shown 'in the drawings is simply an illustrative embodiment of theN invention. The number of pockets and their arrangement may vary,
andV they may be contrived to receive additional or different articles.
A carrier embodying the invention comfiexible backing having formed thereon loops and pockets on the order of those just mentioned, and having also sheaths which are occupied by sti'ening material in.' strip form.
vwith eyelets o, o,
pins a r,
The backing is composed of a back ply g, an intermediate ply 71 and portions of a ply c' of which the loops and pockets are formed. It is continued in the form of a wall 7c composed of back ply g and intermediate ply z, a short distance above the upper ends or mouths of the loops and pockets. At m and fn. are web-extensions or ii-anges at top and bottom of the backing furnished through the holes of which may be passed the pointed portions of safety used in attaching the carrier to a garment of the user. The said extensions or iianges are suiiiciently thin and flexible to enable them to befbent or doubled more or less to facilitate the application of the pins to the eyelets, and the engagement of the pins with the coat or shirt of the user of the carrier. Preferably they are constituted of portions of the back ply g, alone. One or more supplemental eyelets r, applied to the upper one of the said extensions may be occupied by a cord or cords for connecting the eraser and alidade, or other articles, iiexibly withthe oarrfer, as in the case of the cord s shown connected to the said extension and to the alidade.
The sheaths t, t, etc., containing the strip-s u, u, etc., of flexible stiffening material extend lengthwise of the loops and pockets,-
and parallel with the latter. They are formed between the back ply g and the intermediate ply h, by connecting the said two plies together between sheaths and leaving them disunited for the production of the sheaths. The strips u, u, etc., which are slipped lengthwise into the sheaths may be composed of various materials, but usually I vemploy that known in the market as walohn, which has a very satisfactory degree of comparative stiffness combined with flexibility, resiliency, and toughness. The sheaths extend above the upper ends of the loops and pockets, and the upper portions of the flexible stiffening strips also extend above said upper ends.
The loops and pockets are at the exterior of the intermediate ply h. The eraser pocket Z and alidadek pocket f are formed With closed bottoms. The pencil loops are open at both ends. Their lower portions are oc'- cupied by long sleevelike metal cups o, one
namely within the wall 7c,
of which is partly shown where the materialtubes, pencils, eraser, and' lalidade ymay be rolled upon itself transversely into approximately 'a cylinder of comparatively small diameter and carried in one of the users pockets. The .stilfening keeps the carrier ,straight lengthwise so lthat 'the loops land pockets and the wall 7o above the same Vare held' from buckling or bending.' )Consequently, 4no .difficulty is experienced lin in serting the pencils, eraser, and .alidade into their respectiveiloops or pockets. lr#llhe stiii'- .ening means lconstitutes .a .reinforcement .Willich reduces `.the liability of bending of 'the wearers'xbody to cause breakage of pencils.
` The carrier may be made of separate webs of material, by securing the bac-k 4and intermediate ones together between the sheaths, and forming a third web into the lloops and l.pockets and securing .the same .to the face of the intermediate .web'between the loops andpockets. Preferably, the carrier is produced substantially complete fin a loom, omitting the stilfening material and the metal cups, byproducing the back ply, the intermediate ply, land the loops and pockets in the weaving as integral portions of one combination web, all by processes which will be understood those :skilled in the art of weaving. In such'case the sheaths for the reception Of the st'ifi'ening 4material vare formed between ythe back yply and intermediate ply by leaving such two .plies Vdisunited as and Vwhere required for v.tl-1e production of such sheaths. After the `insertionvof the strips of stiii'ening material into the sheaths, 'the upper ends of .the latter are closed, in either method of manufacture, by one or more vlines fw, w, of stitches `above the upper ends ofthe said strips. The loops and pockets are formed in the production of .the loop ply and :in the vweaving lthe latter is joined to the other two plies. V The bottom ends of the eraser pocket and alidade pocketare Woven closed in one of the known ways., 0r as may be preferred. Preferably the bottom, ends v0f the pencil loops are woven open, but contracted or constr-ieted 'indicated in Fig. `1 0f the drawings so'as :to keep the. cups *fram Working' .down
.taxeren :apen-.ings AThe @entretenancen'- .threads ,ofthe said bottornendstova ,heavier degree `'of A'tension itha'n .those employed in weaving 't-lieother portions =of'rtheloops.
When the unfinished carrier "is produced by weaving the same substantially as a complete article, the top and bottom edges of -,the lbaelgi-ng are selvage edges vand the sheaths,`loops and pockets are 'produced -transversely',-Ofthecarrier-web. A connected sequence of carrier-sections is PIQCluced by continuation' oflthe @weaving operations, .'theyibeingsep'arated after the 'conclusion of the said operations vby -cuttin'g ,transversely across fthe portions -of .web 'wliich connect 'themtogetgherlin a longitudinal-series. fUsually, `lthe warp-threads of the intermediate and loop-and-pocket plies are simply :floated between one series eff-loops and ipodlrets and the next, without :interlw'ea'ving Yvviith 'weft .or illing, and after the carrier-sections `:have `been separated lfroin lone another .by cutting across the #back :ply `on 'intermediat'e transverse lines the lloose ends of #warpthreads projecting at the sides ofthe first and last pencil viloops are trimmed Lawa-y. The cut edges .of 'the baek `ply are folded over lupon themselvesand uponthe cut .edges of 'the intermediate .ply and 'loop-.and-'po'cket ply, as-shownat o2, ai, Fig. 2,'and lth'e folded- "over portions Vare secured' :in position "by means of lines offstitches y, y. 'The corners s, 2, of ithetop andbottoin :extensions 'of the `backing are turned over and stitched clown, asa good finish. Y
