, FABRIC BAG Fil ed May 31, 1929 Patented Sept. 15, 1931 UNITED STATES- PATENT OFFICE CHARLES H. ARMSTRONG, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, ASSIG-NOR, BY MESH E ASSIGNMENTS, TO J. S. IBEMIS, TRUSTEE, OF ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI FABRIC BAG Appligation filed May 31, 1929. Serial No. 867,555.
This invention is directed to a fabric bag composed in partof a closely woven fabric, such for instance as muslin, associated with a loosely woven fabric, such as dish cloth meshed fabric, secured together in such a way that one side of the bag will be afiorded by the closely woven fabric and the other side by the open meshed fabric. A bag thus constructed is particularly adapted for the shipment of food products, such as nuts, or onions, in that the close or porous fabric affords ample ventilation or aeration for the contents of the bag, while the close meshed fabric affords a suitable surface upon which the name of the producer, or other designating marks or symbols, may be imprinted.
Furthermore, the provision'of the closely woven section prevents undue stretching or distortion of the bag and enables it to maintain its shape more perfectly than would be possible in the case of abag composed exclusively of open or loosely meshed material.
' Further objects and details of the invention will apear from a description thereof, in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, wherein,--
Figure 1 is a side elevation of the close mesh side of the bag;
Fig. 2 is a cross section through the bag; and
Fig; 3 is a side elevation of the open mesh side of the bag.
The bag in the form shown utilizes a rectangular section A of open or porous abric, such as that commonly employed for the making of dish cloths, which section is stitched around the edges to a. section B of closely woven material such as muslin, upon -which may be imprinted a trade-mark C or other suitable designation indicative of the contents of the bag and the name of the producer.
The mouth D of the bag is suitably stitched or formed with a selvage edge as is common in the making of bags, and the mouth of the bag can obviously be closed in any suitable or well known manner.
A bag thus constructed will retain its shape against undue. stretching or distortion, by reason of the relatively unyielding character of the closely woven section, while at thesame time the' open or porous meshed section will afford ventilation, and also afford a considerable degree of-visibility, so that the contents of the bag may, to some extent, be inspected without openingthe bag.
The bag of the present invention is particularly adapted for the sale of choice food products in the original package and under the trade-mark or label of the purchaser.
Furthermore, the open mesh section of the bag, being formed of dish cloth material, may be used for dish washing purposes by ripping outv the seam and separating the bag sections; while the closely meshed section may be used as a dust cloth or for other domestic purposes. 7
Although it is preferred to have the two I sections of equal dimensions and united around the edges in the manner indicated, it is not the intention, unless indicated in the claims, to specifically limit the invention to a bag formed in the manner indicated, since the closely woven and open mesh sections might be otherwise formed and united without departing from the spirit of the invention.
1. A bag composed of two sections constituting opposite sides of the bag, one of the sections being composed of open meshed fabric of relatively coarse texture adapted to permit ventilation and the other section being of closely meshed fabric of relatively fine texture adapted'to permit lettering to be imprinted thereon and to resist distortion in the shape of the bag.
2. A substantially rectangular bag composed of two sections constituting op osite sides of the bag, the sections being 0 substantially equal dimensions, one of the sections being composed of open meshed fabric of relatively coarse texture adapted to permit ventilation and inspection and the other section of closely meshed fabric of relatively fine texture adapted to permit lettering to be imprinted thereon andto resist distortion in the shape of the bag.
In Witness that I claim the foregoing I have hereunto subscribed my name this 24th day of May, 1929.
CHARLES H. ARMSTRONG.
