WOVEN FABRIC Filed Oct. 25, 1929 El QUALE Eg. 2 L;

fig. 3


My invention relates to woven fabrics. One of the principal objects of my invention is to provide a woven fabric having a hard, glossy appearance, but which will .be suiiiciently flexible to permit it to be readlly handled and worked into millinery shapes.

Another object of the invention is to provide a fabric having a hard, glossy appearance, but which has suliicient body to prelu vent it from being pulled apart during working of the fabric.

A still further object of the invention 1s to provide a flexible fabric having a stiff, glossy appearance by the use of threads including f l5 relatively stiff, glossy material and relatively softer material. 4 I

Fabrics used for millinery purposes must have body and must also be sufficiently flexible to permit them to be made up into any desired hat shape. The millinery trade has long been at a disadvantage in finding a material which meets these requirements and yet has the hlgh glossy appearance often considered d eslrable. Attempts have been made to use varlous ma- 155 terials, but such materials either have not produced the desired gloss or have been so hard and stili that they could not be properlyv worked and resulted in fabrics that would crease to such a degree that they were .30 not suitable for hat shapes- By my invention, the above-mentioned dificulties attendant upon the use of the materials formerly employed are' overcome, .5- and a fabric is produced which lhas a very "i high gloss and is quite flexible, while at the same time having sufiicient body for all millinery purposes. Other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent from the following specification and drawings:

Fig. 1 is a diagrammatic plan view showing thefabric as woven into a twill;

Fig. 2 is a perspective view showing one of the threads used in my fabric;

ignates weft threads. In the preferred form of my invention, the warp threads l are composite threads formed of strips 3 of suitable material such as artificial cellulose, paper, visca, cellophane, or other materials having similar characteristics, cellophane being preferred, with an interposed filler 4 of rayon, ramie, or other suitable fiber. Fig. 2 shows threads l in detail and with the strips 3 and fibers 4 separated. The warp threads l are preferably from one-half millimeter to oneand-a-half millimeters i width, but the Width used will naturally vary according to the fabric to be woven.

In thepreferred form of'my fabric, the weft threads 2 are preferably of artificial horsehair, although any other threads having the desired qualities of stiffness and flexibility could be used. The drawings show the weft formed of two threads in each shed, but it will be understood that the number of weft threads in each shed might be decreased or increased as desired.

The horsehair threads might be eliminated altogether and both warp and weft formed of threads like threads 1, as shown in Fig. 3.

The Fig. 1 showing of composite threads like threads 1 used as the warp and horsehair threads used as the weft is merely for the purpQse of illustrating the fabric, since the position ,of these threads in the fabric could be reversed. The composite threads, according to my invention, may be employed either in S' the war or in the weft or in both the warp and weg. They may be used, also, in any of the known fabric weaves.

I claim:

1. A aan@ aba@ including a body of aa,

vribbonlike composite threads of artificial cellulose and ber, and stiffenin threads interlaced with threads of said b y at suitable intervals and extending substantially straight 5 through the fabric.

' 2. A fabric including at threads formed of flat strands of artificial cellulose with Eller fibers embodied between the strands and within the strands.

1 3. A fabric ,including lflatjthreads formed of Hat strands of artificial cellulose with filler a f fibers embodied between the strands',- the'v fibers and llers extending substantially straight and arallel throughout their length.
