TOWEL Filed Nov. 17, 1951 ATTORNEY Patented Aug. 15, 1933 TOWEL Bethine A. Martin, New York, N. Y.

Application November 17, 1931 Serial No. 575,679

4 Claims.

The object of my invention has been to provide an improvement in towels which shall have, among other advantages those of enabling one to obtain, with a towel made of relatively soft material, friction comparable to that obtainable with a towel made of rough or harsh material, and thus to stimulate the circulation of the blood, and especially to obtain this result upon the back; of enabling the towel to be used as a jumping rope, and of affording convenient means for hanging a towel upon a hook, without injury to the fabric of the towel, and to such ends, my invention consists of theimprovement in towels hereinafter specified.

While I have chosen, for purposes of illustration, the best embodiment thereof known to me, my invention is capable of embodiment in many different forms, and it is not to be confined to the illustrative form, but is to be understood 0 as including every towel having substantially the same elements as those specified in the claims, and all equivalents thereof which perform substantially the same functions in substantially the same way to obtain the same result.

In the accompanying drawing, Fig. 1 is a side view of a towel embodying my invention. Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional View on the line 2-2 of Fig. l, and Figures 3 and 4 are respectively a side elevation, and a sectional view on the line 4-4 of a towel embodying my invention.

In the said illustrative form of my invention, I have shown a towel A, sufficiently large for bath purposes, having a cord B attached to its upper edge, preferably by having the fabric of the towel folded over the cord and its edgesewed to the body of the towel. In the present instance, I have shown a double strand of the cord so secured in the upper edge of the towel and extending beyond the end of the towel and forming a loop at each end. The two strands of the cord are preferably made to lie side by side in the plane of the body of the towel. In the use of my towel, the bather takes hold of the cord by the loops, or, if the cord does not extend beyond the ends of the towel, by the fabric of the towel at the ends of the cord; and

end of the towel to form handles.

fabric of my towel be composed of cotton, or

other similar relatively soft material.

By having the plurality of strands of the cord lying in a plane parallel with the fabric of the towel, an area of appreciable width can be 6 pressed against the back without cutting in so much as might be the case if but a single strand of cord were used; although the advantages of my invention would inhere to a considerable extent in a towel having but a single strand.

It is not uncommon for bathers before or after going into the water to skip rope; and by wrapping my towel around the cords and holding it by the loops, a very fair jumping rope is formed. Various changes can be made in the form of my invention which I have illustrated without substantial departure from its principle. For instance, the cords might run through the center of the towel or other portions, than its edge. It will be seen that my invention results in a towel having a considerable number of desirable advantages.

I claim:

1. The combination of a towel, a cord embedded in and enclosed by the fabric of the towel and 30 projecting beyond each end of the towel to form handles.

2. The combination of a towel, a cord enfolded by the towel and projecting beyond each 3. The combination of a towel, a doubled cord enfolded in the towel and projecting beyond each end of the towel to form handles.

4. The combination of a towel, and a relatively heavy cord fastened lengthwise adjacent the edge of the towel and extending beyond the ends of the towel to form handles.
