Embossed Trimming.




Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 129,604, dated J uly 16, 1872.

To all whom it may concern:

Beit known that I, WiLLIAM SIDENBERG, of the city, county, and State of New York, have invented a new Embossed Trimming, principally for ladies wear; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawing making part of this specification.

My invention consists in embossing or laying in or upon any suitable material regular figures, alternating with each other, and somewhat representing the plaiting in basket-work, as shown in the drawing, and folding, gathering, or plaiting the edges to contract them to the same length of the embossed part, so as to receive a binding, or be stitched directly upon the garment.

Figure l represents a top view of my embossed trimming, the upper edge,` at the termination of the embossing, being stitched, and having a narrow strip, by which it may be attached to the garment, while upon its lower edge is sewed a plaited strip, forming a finish thereto. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section of Fig. l. Fig. 3 is a cross-section of Fig. 1. Fig. 4 is a plan or top view of a modification ofthe arrangement of the embossed Iigures, forming an insertion or intermediate trimming without an edging. Fig. 5 is also a top view of my embossed trimming, having embroidered edges secured thereto.

Like letters indicate corresponding parts in all ofthe figures.

The general principle of producing embossed work is well known 5 and in such common use,

` and being no part of my invention, a detailed description is omitted as unnecessary.

A A in the annexed drawing represent the gures, which are laid in the fabric at regular distances, or nearly so7 apart, and alternating with each other, so that the ends 0 of the tigures shall terminate in tlie depressions o between the next succeeding row of figures, tlius forming at nearly equal. distances successive embossed ligures o and depressions o, as represented. These embossed iigures may vary in configuration and arrangement so long as they alternate with each other, and are regularly'laid in or upon the material, and somewhat representing the plaiting in basket-work, as shown in the drawing. To dispose of the surplus material on the sides of the trimming caused by the embossing and contract these edges to a length equal with the center or embossed part, so as to receive a binding or be sewed directly upon the garment, they (the edges) are folded, plaited, or gathered, as at e, Fig. 3, and flattened in any convenient inanner, after which this trimming is prepared to receive a binding, insertion, edging, or be sewed directly upon the garment.

It is obvious that a great variety of arrangements of gures may be produced which would be embraced in my invention so long as the basket-work embossing is employed.

Having thus fully described my new embossed trimming for we'arin g apparel, what I claim therein as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

As a new article of manufacture, a trimming for apparel, consisting of a strip of lcloth embossed or luted in two or more rows of alternating raised and depressed portions, the border edges of which are folded or plaited and attached to a flat fabric or binding, as set forth.
