s'oiaims.

This invention relates to improvements in santudinal edges but not the central areas of the top itary napkins.

It is a well known fact in this art that the present type of sanitary napkins, in which the cellulosic substance is in direct contact with the body, cause considerable irritation or chafing.

- The principal object of this invention is to produce a napkin made of highly absorbent material, and having around the edges strips of a very soft and non-irritating material such as soft flannel or the like.

In the accompanying drawing I have illustrated two preferred forms of this invention, in which Fig. l is a perspective view of the pad assembled.

Fig. 2 is a view of the pad without the protecttive strips.

Fig. 3 shows the protective strips.

Fig. 4 is a modification in which the pad may have two cut-away portions forming a recess for the protective strips.

Fig. 5 is another modified form in which one complete protective, sheet may be placed Ion top. of the absorbent pad with a cut-away portion in the middle.

Referring now to Fig. 1, (10) illustrates the usual pad. 11 and 12) are protective strips formed of a materialdissimilar to the pad (10) and adapted to be in direct contact with the body.

0 (13) represents the gauze now used in the manufacture of all sanitary napkins.

Referring to Fig. 4, the pad (10) may have recesses (14 15- adapted to receive the protective strips (ll-12) and securely hold the said protective strips (11-12) inposition.

In Fig. 5, instead of using two separate protective strips it may be preferable to use one com= plete sheet of material similar to that referred to in ref. characters (11-12) I claim 1. As an article of manufacture, a sanitary napkin comprising in combination a pad of absorbent material, separate strips of a relatively thin soft non-irritating material covering longi-' or bottom surfaces of the pad, and a covering surrounding said pad and said strips.

2. As an article of manufacture, a sanitary napkin comprising in combination a pad of absorbent material and separate strips of a. relatively thin soft non-irritating material partially covering the pad adjacent edges thereof but not covering the central areas of the top or bottom surfaces of the pad, and a covering surrounding a; said pad and said strips.

3. As an article of manufacture, a sanitary napkin comprising in combination a pad of absorbent material, relatively thin soft non-irritating material of a lesser area than the total pad 10 area. covering the pad adjacent longitudinal edge portions thereof and substantially covering the longitudinal side edges of the pad to present nonirritating contact surfaces, said napkin presenting absorbent top and bottom surfaces, and a covering surrounding said pad and said material.

e. As an article of manufacture, a sanitary napkin comprising in combination a pad of material, said pad being absorbent throughout its entire cross section, relatively thin soft non-irritating material of a lesser area than the total pad area covering the pad adjacent longitudinal edge portions thereof and substantially covering the longitudinal side edges of the padto present nonirritating contact surfaces, said napkin presenting absorbent top and bottom surfaces, and a'covering surrounding said pad and said material.

C 5. As an article of manufacture, a sanitary napkin comprising in combination a pad of absorhent material, separate strips of relatively thin soft non-iritating material each of said strips being wider than the pad is thick and folded to embrace-iongitudinal edge corners of the pad and cover longitudinal edge surfaces and adjacent 'longitui'linal edge portions of the side surfaces. of the said pad but not the central top or bottom areas of-said pad, and a covering surrounding said pad and said strips.
