LAUNDRY BAG Filed Dec. 5, 1934 Elma/r1101,

(3. E Lwib'ell Patented May 12, 1936 UNITED STATES PATENT OFF-ICE LAUNDRY BAG Charles E. Luttrell, Greenville, S. 0. Application December 5, 1934, Serial No. 756,153 3 Claims. (01. -1)

My invention relates to laundry bags.

An important object of the invention is to provide a laundry bag which will afford suitable ventilation for the soiled articles therein.

A further object of the invention is to provide a laundry bag so constructed that the articles of apparel or the like may be readily and conveniently inserted therein and which is adapted to be manipulated so that such articles cannot fall out of the bag.

A further object of the invention is to provide a laundry bag so constructed that the same has a large holding capacity, and when empty may be collapsed into a flat formation so that it may be folded into a, small form for shipment.

A further object of the invention is to provide a laundry bag of the above mentioned character having means for suspending the same in a manner to permit of the ready and easy insertion of the articles into the bag through the opening or slit in the front thereof.

A further object of the invention is to provide a laundry bag having an-element or elements in its bottom serving as ventilating means and also as holding elements to be engaged by the fingers so that the bag may be readily-inverted for emptying the same.

A further object of the invention isto provide a bag of the above mentioned character formed offew parts and which is extremely simple in construction and cheap to manufacture.

, Other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent during the course of the following description.

In the accompanying drawing forming a part of this application, and in which like numerals are employed to'designate like parts throughout the same,

Figure 1 is a perspective view of a laundry bag embodying my invention,

Figure 2 is a longitudinal section taken on line 2-2 of Figure 1.

Figure 3 is a horizontal section taken on line H of Figured, and,

Figure 4 is an enlarged central longitudinal vertical section, similar to Figure 2, showing the bottom of the bag, parts broken away.

In the drawing, wherein for the purpose of illustration is shown a preferred embodiment of my invention, the numeral 5 designates the bag as a whole, which is preferably formed of a woven fabric, although it may be formed of any other suitable material. This bag comprises a back 8 and a front 1, which are preferably longitudinally tapered and increased in width downwardly and have their lowerends rounded, but the invention is in no sense restricted to this precise shape. The back 6 and front 1 are arranged in opposed relation and the back 6 is longer than the front 1 so that its upper end extends beyond the upper 5 end of the front 1, such upper. end being folded downwardly upon itself for affording a hem .8. The lower end of the hem and the upper end of the front 1 are stitched together and to the back 6 by a transverse line of stitching 9. The 10 is preferably provided with a a point equi-distantly spaced from its ends toward its free ends and decreases in width toward such free ends. This strip constitutes the sides I i and bottom l3 of the bag. The strip I2 is arranged between the back 6 and front 1 adjacent 20 to their marginal edges-and is secured to the back and front by marginal lines of stitching I4 and IS, the marginal edges preferably having bindings i6. The fabric strip I2 is preferably longitudinally creased at its central longitudinal axis, 2 as indicated at IT, so that the sides Ii and bottom I3 will readily fold inwardly upon this line of creasing, whereby the empty bag may be readily collapsed in a fiat formation, thus enabling the same to be folded or rolled into a flat form 0 for shipment.

The front 1 is provided with a longitudinal opening or slit l8 adapted to be opened and closed by a sliding fastener i9, ordinarily known as a zipper. Any suitable type of sliding fastener 35 may be used such as shown inPatent 1,902,416. The opening or slit preferably extends for about one-half of the length of thebag at the central longitudinal axis of the front 1.

n In order that the soiled clothes or the like 40 stored within the bag may be suitably ventilated, both the back 6 and the front 1 are provided with a suitable number of eyelets 20, the openings of which place the interior of the bag into. free com-' munication with the atmosphere. These open- 4 ings or eyelets are preferably arranged near the marginal edges of the back and front, in spaced relation, as shown. In the bottom I 3, I preferably provide one or more larger eyelets 2|, for ventilation purposes, and for also receiving the 50 finger or fingers so-that a grip may be readily had with the bottom of the bag to invert the same or the like, when desired. These larger eyelets are preferably disposed upon opposite sides of the line of folding I1. 56

Means are provided tosuspend or support the bag so that the front I is held in a generally flat relation, such means comprising a rod 22, passing through the hem 8 and having up-turned ends 23, provided with eyes or loops 24. A flexible supporting element or chain 25 is provided with snaps 26 for detachable engagement with the loops 24 and a ring 21 or the like is connected within the supporting element or chain and this ring is adapted for arrangement upon a stationary support element. By disconnecting either snap 26 from the eye 24, the rod 22 may be readily withdrawn from within the hem 8 and thereby separated from the bag. This is done after the bag has become filled and when it is desired to send the same to the laundry.

The strip l2 preferably terminates at or near the hem.

When the bag is empty it may be readily collapsed by the sides H folding upon the crease 11 so that the back 6 and front 1 will lie in close reation. The bag may now be'folded upon itself any suitable number of times to provide a relatively small compact form, for the purpose of shipment, or it may be rolled upon the rod 22.

When it is desired touse the bag, the ring 21 is mounted upon a. stationary supporting element and the bag is suspended from the rod 22 and the front 1 supported in a generally flat condition. By opening the sliding fastener IS; the slit or opening 18 may be opened and the articles of apparel or the like readily passed through the slit or opening into the bag. As the bag fills, the sides ll open or unfold along the lines l1, thus provid v ing a bag of suitable large capacity. The eyelets 20 and 2! provide suitable ventilation. When the sliding fastener I9 is closed the articles of c'othing or the like cannot improperly escape from the bag.

It is to be understood that the form of my invention herewith shown and described is tobe taken as a preferred example of the same and that various changes in the shape, size and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of my invention or the scope of the subjoined claims. -Having thus described my claim is:

1. A laundry invention, what I bagincluding a front, back, and side strip for forming sides and a bottom, the front having an opening formed therein and extending longitudinally thereof, the side strip tapering toward its upper ends and secured to the front and back and being foldable longitudinally, a sliding fastener for closing the opening, means for forming a hem at the upper end of the bag, a rod held within the hem, and means to support the rod.

2. A laundry bag including afront, back, side strip for forming sides and a bottom,'the side strip tapering toward its upper ends and secured to the front and back and being foldable longitudinally, a substantially rigid element secured to the top of the bag for supporting the same and extending throughout the width of the front and back, the'front having an elongated opening formed therein extending longitudinally of the same beneath the rigid element, a sliding fastener to close the elongated opening, and means to support the rigid element.

3. A laundry bag having a front and back, the front having a longitudinally extending slit for the passage of the articles, said bag having its upper end closed and provided adjacent to such closed upper end with a transverse hem, a. rod removably mounted within the hem and adapted to be generallyhorizontally arranged in use for supporting the bag with its front generally transversely fiat, said rod projecting at its end beyond the hem and bent intoeyes which project laterally beyond the rod and serve to limit the longitudinal movement of the hem on the rod when the hem is supported thereon, a suspension element connected with one eye and having detachable connection with the other eye, and a sliding fastener to close the slit.
