Patented Aug. 4, 1931 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE JESSE STAM, OF BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, ASSIGNOR TO FAIRGLOUGH & GOLD, INC., 01 BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, A CORPORATION OF MASSACHUSETTS CURTAIN Application filed December of a portion of the curtain, according to each embodiment;

Fig. 4.- is a sectional view on line 4-4; of Fig. 3; and

Fig. 5 is a sectional view on line 55 of Fig. 3.

Referring to the drawings, and to the embodiments of the invention illustrated therein, and having reference at first to Fig. 1, there is shown a woven curtain of the scrim or marquisette type, having a hem 10 along one of its vertical or longitudinal edges, and a hem 11 along one of its horizontal or transverse edges. In the form shown in Fig. 2, the curtain has two hems along its vertical :0 or longitudinal edges, and a hem 11 along one of its horizontal or transverse edges.

In each form, the principal portion or body of the woven fabric is an open mesh weave, composed of weft threads 12 (see Fig. 3),

85 and a warp composed of warp threads 13.

The warp threads are in pairs (see Fig. 4), and the threads of each pair embrace a weft thread 12, then cross each other, then embrace another weft thread, and so on, thus 4 producing a plain groundwork, or background, for the ornamental pattern now to be described.

The novel characteristic of the pattern is that it is complete within the space bordered 4 by the hems,-that is to say, no portion of the pattern extends into the hems. This being so, the curtain is far more attractive and saleable than a curtain in which the pattern extends into the hems. This is accomplished by the use of extra warp threads 14 3, 1930. Serial No. 499,651.

and extra weft threads 15, terminating short of the hems. Each extra warp thread, as herein shown, is composed of a pair of heavy threads laid side by side, and filling the space between two adjacent main warp threads 13. In like manner, each extra weft thread 15, as herein shown, is composed of a pair of heavy threads laid side by said, and filling the space between two adjacent main weft threads 12.

Each extra warp thread is laid over one weft thread, then under the next weft thread, and so on to the end. Each extra weft thread, however, is embraced by one pair of main warp threads, then by another pair of main Warp threads, and so on to the end.

It is the relative lengths of the extra warp and weft threads which determine the pattern. In the particular pattern shown by way of example, there are two of the extra warp threads which extend throughout the vertical or longitudinal portion of the pattern, and there are two of the extra weft threads which extend throughout the horizontal or transverse portion of the pattern. The remaining extra threads are of various lengths. The threads are cut to produce the desired pattern, which of course may take various forms within the scope of my invention.

In the example shown, the horizontal and vertical portions of the pattern cross each other adjacent the corner of the curtain, but,

as hereinbefore stated, within the field bordered by the hems. As shown, the extra warp threads are not interwoven with the extra weft threads, but are simply laid across them.

It should of course be understood that the manner of weaving, as well as the pattern, may be varied within the scope of my invention.

Having thus described two embodiments of the invention, but'without limiting myself thereto, what I claim and desire by Letters Patent to secure is:

l. A curtain comprising a woven fabric having a hem along one of its longitudinal edges and a hem along one of the transverse edges, said fabric comprising a set of spaced, main, warp threads extending throughout the length of the curtain, a set of spaced, main,

weft threads extending throughput the width of the curtain, a set of relatively heavy, extra, warp threads in the spaces between said main warp threads, adjacent a lon 'tudinal edge and terminating short of sai transverse hem, and a set of relatively heavy, extra, weft threads in the spaces between said main, weft threads, adjacent a transverse edge and terminating short of said longitudinal hem.

2. A curtain comprising a woven fabric having a hem along one of itslongitudinal edges and a hem along one of its transverse edges, said fabric comprising a set of main, weft threads mutually spaced and extending throughout the width of the fabric, a set of main, warp threads, spaced in groups and extendin throughout the length of the fabric and 0 which the grouped threads embrace the said weft threads and cross therebetween, a set of relatively heavy, extra warp threads each comprising a plurality of threads simultaneously interwoven with said main, weft threads in the spaces between said groups of main warp threads, adjacent a longitudinal edge and terminating short of said transverse hem, and a set of relatively heavy, extra weft threads each comprising a plurality of threads in the spaces between said main weft threads adjacent a transverse edge and simultaneously embraced between the crossings of said groups of main warp threads.

3. A curtain comprising a woven fabric having a hem along one of its longitudinal edges and a hem along one of its transverse edges, said fabric comprising a set of main, weft threads mutually s aced and extending throughout the width of the fabric, a set of main, warp threads, spaced in groups and extending throughout the length of the fabric and of which the grouped threads embrace the said weft threads and cross therebetween, a set of relatively heavy, extra warp threads each comprising a plurality of threads simultaneously interwoven with said main, weft threads in the spaces between said groups of main warp threads, adjacent a longitudinal edge and terminating short of said transverse hem, and a set of relatively heavy, extra, weft threads each comprising a plurality of threads in the spaces between said main weft threads adjacent a transverse edge and simultaneously embraced between the crossings of said groups of main warp threads, certain of said extra weft and extra warp threads extending through the same portion of the fabric with said extra weft threads overlying said extra -warp threads on the same face of the fabric at the crossing points thereof.

4. A curtain according to claim 1 in which certain of the extra weft and extra warp threads extend through the same portion of the fabric with said extra weft threads overlying said extra warp threads on the same face of the fabric at the crossing points thereof.

5. A curtain according to claim 1 in which said extra warp and extra weft threads each comprise a plurality of threads simultaneously interwoven in said fabric in the spaces between said main warp and main weft threads, respectively.

6. A curtain according to claim 1 in which said sets of extra warp and extra weft threads comprise sections of discontinuous threads in alignment with, but spaced from, one another in the spaces between said main warp and main weft threads, respectively, thereby providing selective longitudinal and transverse filling of said spaces to produce a design.

7. A curtain according to claim 1 in which said sets of extra warp and extra weft threads comprise sections of discontinuous threads spaced from one another in the spaces between said main warp and main weft threads, respectively, and also continuous threads extending substantially the en: tire length and width of said fabric exclusive of saidhems, respectively, thereby providing selective longitudinal and transverse filling of said spaces to produce design sections having longitudinal and transverse continuity, respectively.

8. A curtain comprising a woven fabric having a hem along one of its longitudinal edges and a hem along one of the transverse edges, said fabric comprising a set of main, warp threads extending throughout the length of the curtain, a set of main, weft' threads extending throughout the width of the curtain, a set of relatively heavy, extra, warp threads between said main warp threads, adjacent a longitudinal edge and terminating short of said transverse hem, and a set of relatively heavy, extra, weft threads between said main, weft threads, adjacent a transverse edge and tenninating short of said longitudinal hem.

9. A curtain comprising a woven fabric having a longitudinal finished edge and a transverse finished edge, said fabric comprising a set of main, warp threads extending throughout its length, a set of main, weft threads extending throughout its width, a set of relatively heavy, extra, warp threads between said main warp threads adjacent a longitudinal edge and terminating short of said transverse finished edge, and a set of relatively heavy, extra, weft threads between said main, weft threads adjacent a transverse edge and terminating short of said longitudinal finished edge.
