and various applications without departing from Itis advantageous in the manufacture of bags the essential features herein disclosed. It is embodying my invention as shown in Fig. 3, that its dimensions be so proportioned that the element I B when spread fiat should measure exactly the front of the bag. Then the components I and 15, the front and back of the bag l6, their respective linings and any longitudinal partitions (not shown), could all be out together in one operation; effecting a material saving in production.
In luggage or larger size hand bags, where it is desirable to have many compartments, I embody my invention in a construction illustrated in Fig. 4, wherein additional members III are in--.;
cluded by joining one member ID to another, by stitching the ends of parts l2 and I3 respectively of one within the remote pleats 2| of the partition portion I I of the other, to form additional collapsible and extensible compartments 24, and fiat pockets 22.
In the construction in accordance with my present invention, of a symmetrical bag having but two adjacent collapsible compartments, I use a. member as shown in Fig. 2, wherein the pocket portion 23 extends in a direction opposite to that of the pocket portion l3, whereby when such a member is sewn within a bag IS, a flat pocket is formed on either side of the partition portion l I; one pocket with the front of the bag and the other with the back of the bag being thus formed in alternate relation.
1. In an article of the type described, a bag body and a pair of members, each of which comprises a pleated portionintermediate and substantially perpendicular to fiat end portions, secured within the bag body to form'adjoining collapsible compartments therein; the end portions of one of said members lining opposite sides of the bag portion within one of the compartments and the end elements of the other of said members being respectively secured within pleats of the pleated portion of the first member, whereby the end portion of the second memberform pockets with opposite sides of the bag body.
2. In an article of the type described, a bag body and a pair of members,'each of which com prises a pleated portion intermediate and substana central pleated portion between body and a member tially perpendicular to flat end portions, secured within the bag body to form adjoining collapsible compartments therein and whereby each of the end portions of said members form pockets with the bag body; the end portions of one of said members being respectively secured within the pleats of the pleated portion of the other of said members.
3. In an article of the type described, a bag body and a member, comprising a pleated portion intermediate and substantially perpendicular to flat end portions, secured within the bag body; each of end portions being secured at its ends only, whereby the pleated portion parti- 1 tions the bag body'to form compartments therein,
and each of the end portions form pockets with opposite components of the bag body.
-4. In an article of the type described, a bag body and a member, comprising an accordion pleated central portion and perpendicularly extending end portions in substantially parallel planes, secured within the bag body; each of the end-portions being secured at its ends only, whereby the pleated portion partitions the bag body to form adjoining collapsible compartments therein, and each of the end portions lineopposite sides of the bag body to form pockets therewith.
5. 'Inan'article of the type described, a bag body having end gussets, and a member having integral end portions; each of the end portions being secured at its ends only, one end to the bag body and the other end stitched in a gusset seam line, 'the pleated portion. partitioning the bag body to form adjoining collapsible compartments therein.
'6. In an article of the type described, a bag comprising substantially perpendicular portions secured within the bag body, each of said portions being secured at its ends only, whereby the bag body is partitioned to form compartments therein by one of the portions and whereby a pocket is formed by the other of said portions with a component 01' the bag 7 body.
