HEAD COVERING Filed Jan. 19, 1942 MA m: HARD/N6- Patented Dec. 7, 194? UNITED smite ren t 3 Claims.
This invention relates to head coverings, and more particularly to improvements in head coverings of the turban type adapted for wear by women.
Heretofore, head gear of the turban type has been provided in various forms which all have substantially the same shape and appearance on the head of a wearer. This sameness of appearance, especially to women, is monotonous; and in an attempt to overcome this objection, ornaments of various kinds have been used. How ever, the actual shape of the turba is not changed, and the use of different ornaments from time to time is expensive and inconvenient. Clearly, this is objectionable as turbans are generally employed because of their convenience of application and relatively inexpensiveness.
It is, therefore, an object of this invention to provide a head covering of the turban type which is of simple structure, inexpensive and provided with means to enable it to be formed into a plurality of different shapes without requiring alteration or the use of naments of any kind.
A furtherobject is the provision of a head covering of the turban type formed from a single piece of fabric and having a plurality of pockets adapted to receive elongated pads which enable the device to be wrapped into a plurality of different shapes.
These and other objects are attained by the novel construction and arrangement of parts described in the following specification and shown in the accompanying drawing forming a part thereof, in which:
Fig. l is a view of the turban on a head prior to wrapping.
Fig. 2 is a rear view showing the initial step in wrapping the turban.
Fig. 3 is a front view showing the initial wrapping step.
Fig. 4 is a front view showing the next step in wrapping.
Fig. 5 is a front view after the turban has been wrapped.
Fig. 6 is a side view of the turban after wrapping.
Fig. '7 is a rear view of the turban after wrapping.
Figs. 8 and 9 are respectively side and front views of the turban after it has been wrapped to provide a different shape.
Fig. 10 is a plan view of the turban partially broken away.
Referring to the drawing, the head covering,
device in the form of a turban is shown to comprise a main body I, formed from a single piece of fabric or similar material, and gathered at 2 to form a head receiving pocket 3. Extending from and integral with the body I are streamers 4, each of which is provided intermediate its length with a longitudinal pocket 5 receiving a longitudinal cylindrical like pad 6. The streamers 4 taper from the body portion I.
It will be noted that the streamers 4 are relatively narrow and not in the form of bands. Each streamer 4 is substantially tubular throughout the greater part of its length, thus forming the pockets 5. By means of the extended tubular form of the pockets 5, the pads B can be shifted to a plurality of positions in the pockets, thus enabling the formation of several different shapes.
In applying the head covering, the body portion 1 is placed on the head with the streamers falling from the rear of the head as shown in Fig. l. The streamers are wrapped across each other upwardly and towards the front of the head as indicated in Figs. 2, 3. The streamers are then twisted once around each other, see Fig. 4, and the pads 6 in the streamers are then brought downwards on both sides of the head as indicated in Figs. 5, 6, '7. The streamers are then tied together in the rear of the head or tucked beneath th folds of the head covering at the rear, as may suit the fancy and convenience of the wearer, there obviously being numerous ways of disposing of the loose ends of the streamers.
By moving the pads 6 to different positions in the pockets, the pads being of less length than the pockets, a large variety of shapes can be formed. In Figs. 8 and 9, are shown views of a shap which can be formed by knotting the pads 6, after the streamers have been twisted as shown in Fig. 4.
Another shape can be formed, for example, by removing one pad, and using the remaining pad to form a sort of crown over the central portion of the front of the head.
From the above description it will be seen that there has been provided an economical and convenient head covering of simple structure which can be formed into a plurality of desired shapes without alteration. The device is especially desirabl for working women who find it necessary to economize. With a single head covering as above described, a woman is able to appear with a head dress of different shape each day.
The above description is illustrative and not restrictive of the invention, of which, obviously modifications can be made without departing a head, tapered streanieis extending from the body portion, said streamers being in part tubular and forming pockets therein, and elongated pads positioned in said pockets, said pockets being of greater length than said pads.
3. In a head covering of the turban type, a main body portion adapted to fit over a head, a pair of relatively narrow streamers extending from the body portion, at least one of said streamers being tubular to form a pocket, and an elongated pad positioned in said pocket.
