BOTTOM HANDLED BAG Filed Aug- 18, 1926 MOM Z/TMLD Patented [0a. 29, 1929 j UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE JAMES DUVALL, OF CAMAS, WASHINGTON, ASSIGNOR TO CROWN WILLAMETTE PAPER COMPANY, OF-SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, A CORPORATION OF DELAWARE BOTTOM-HANDLED BAG Application filed August 18, 1926. Serial No. 129,949.

My invention relates to paper bags especially the square-bottom type, and has for its object the providing of the bottom of this type of bag with a handle by which the bag may be carried about when filled,

and which will not interfere with the tying up of the bag when filled.

Preferably, I attain this result by fastenin to the bottom of the bag a strip of f0 ded fabric, the portions adjacent the fold of the strip being glued together and cut out to provide a hand-hole, one side of I which registersapproximately with the fold of'the bottom of the bag when the latter is flattened out;

And preferably this reenforcing bottom strip is made flexible along the bottom of the bag so that when the latter is set up the handle portion may be arranged flatwise against the bottom of the bag, and thus not interfere with the standing up of the bag.

A further object of m invention is so to arrange the bottom reen orcing handle strip of the bag so that the side portions thereof afi'ixed to the bottom of the bag will extend approximately to the lateral edges of the bottom of the bag when the latter is set up, thereby to provide a protective bearing surface on which the string tying up the bagmay bear, to prevent the string cutting through the bottom of the bag which, however, is not necessary at the top of the bag as it is commonly folded overseveral times when filled and tied and hence no reenforcinglis required at that point as at the -satchel-bottom 'bag as provided with my bottom reenforcing handle; Fig. 2 shows by itself a perspectiveof thehandle-strip to be fastened to the bottom of the bag;

Fig. 3 is a-ii-diagrammatic' section of my bag taken approximately on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1 illustrating how the side strips are fixed t0 the bottom of the bag;

Fig. 4 is a diagrammatic section of my bag similar to Fig. 3, illustrating by dotted lines that when the bag is set up the handle strip fixed to the bottom of the bag may the reenforcement serving to prevent the itring cuttingthrough the bottom of the To the bottom of the bag a which is of' the usual type used-in grocerystores and the like, is fixed a satchel-like handle I). The handle I) is out out of a piece of material of substantially rectangular shape corresponding in length with that of the bag bottom. The piece is folded along its longitudinal middle upon itself; as shown in Fig. 2. The sections adjacent the fold are eemented together on the lines 7, see Fig. 1,

located between the longitudinal edges of said piece. The portions 03 and 6 extending beyond said line will thus form a dihedral angle, and these portions are cemented to the bag bottom on the opposite sides of the fold thereof. In this way such portions d, 6, provide reinforcement for the bottom of the bag not only increasing its strength but also preventing the cutting of the bag fabric atthe bottom when tied with twine after being filled. The section of the piece extending from the bag bottom, that is the part b, is cut out to provide a hand-hold c. The folds f and 9, having reference to Fig. 2, are creased so that the section 6 extending from the bag bottom is adapted to be folded against either side of the bag bottom to facilitate the standing up of the bag.

I claim:

1. The combination with a foldable bag of the square-bottom type, of a handle aflixed to the bag bottom and composed of a piece of material'folded at its longitudinal middle upon itself, the sections adjacent the said line, whereby the section exteng from fold being cemented together to a line parthe bag bottom 1s adapted to be folded against allel with and lyingbetween the longitudinal either slde of the bag bottom when the bag is edges of said piece, the portions of said piece to d up.

5 extending beyond said line forming a dihe- JAMES dral angle whose faces are cemented to the bag bottom on the opposite sides respectively of its fold, to reinforce the bag bottom and. the section of the piece extending from the bag bottombeing cut out to provide a handas hold.

- 2. The combination with a foldable bag of the sqiiare-bottom type, of a handle aihxed to the'bag bottom and composed of a substantially rectangular piece oi material corso responding in length with that of the bag bottom, the piece being folded at its longi- 9 tudinal middle upon itself, the sections adjacent the fold being cemented together to ace line parallel with and lying between the e e longitudinal edges of said piece, the portions of "said piece extending beyond said line forming a dihedral angle whose faces are cemented to the bag bottom on the opposite sides respectively of its fold, to reinforce the 99 bag bottom and the section of the. piece extending from the bag bottom being cut out I to provide a hand-hold.

3, The combination with a foldable bag of the square-bottom'type, of a handle affixed I 95 to the bag bottom and composed of a piece of material folded at its longitudinal middle upon itself, the sections adjacent the fold being cemented together to a line parallel -5 with and lying between the longitudinal m9 edges of said piece, the portions of said piece extending beyond said line "forming a dihedral angle whose faces are cemented to the bag bottom on the opposite sides respectively a of its fold, to reinforce the bagbottom, the

section of thepiece extending from the bag bottom being cut out to provide a hand-hold and the handle piece being creased along said line, whereby the section extending from the bag bottom is adapted'to be folded 110 against either. side'of thebag bottom when the bag is stood up.

4. The combination with a foldable bag of the square-bottomtype, of a handle affixed to the bag bottom and composed of a substantially rectangular piece of material corresponding in length with that of the bag bot tom, the piece being folded at its longitudinal middle upon itself, the sections adjacent the l 2 fold being cemented together to a line parallel with and lying between the longitudinal. edges of said piece, the portions of said piece extending beyond said line forming a diheo0 dral angle whose faces are cemented to the 125 bag bottom on the opposite sides respectively of its fold, to reinforce the bag bottom, the A section ofthe piece extending from the bag bottom\ being cut out to provide a hand-hold and the handle piece being creased along 3 9f
