This invention relates to the head-bands used in headwear, such as men’s hats and caps. The object of the invention is to provide a headband which is cool and comfortable in use, 5 and is more effective than the conventional type of leather head-band in precluding the percola tion of sweat and grease from the head and through the band to the hat. In order to fully describe the invention refer 10 ence is made tothe accompanying drawing which depicts a preferred form thereof in various stages of manufacture, and in which Fig. 1 is a perspective View showing the face strip and backing strip sewn together, Fig. 2‘ is a cross-sectional view through the strips of Fig. 1, Fig. 3 is a fragmentary perspective view of the construction of Figs. l and 2, after folding, Fig. 4 is a fragmentary perspective view of the 20 construction of Fig. 3, after the attachment of a sweat strip, and Fig. 5 is a fragmentary perspective View of the completed band after folding to ñnal position. The drawing exaggerates somewhat the thick 25 ness of the various strips and folds, in order to more clearly illustrate the construction. The head-band includes a face strip I to con tact the head of the wearer and which is formed of a strip of cotton-backed satin, or other suitable 30 textile material such as silk, silk and cotton, or rayon silk. This face strip l is impregnated with a waterproof solution consisting of the following ingredients, in approximately the proportions specified: 35 Parts Copal varnish ______________________________ _„ l Mineral turpentine ________________________ __ 8 Whitelead ___________________ „_, ___________ __ l Pigment if and as required o After impregnation the face strip I is dried an-d a backing strip 2, of flannelette or other suitable absorbent material such as woolen cloth, is laid on the “right” surface of the face strip» (see Fig. 45 l) and is stitched thereto at 3, along that edge which is the upper edge of the band when in place in a hat. The face strip I is then folded along its upper edge, as shown in Fig. 3, swing ing the backing strip 2 to its “wrong” side, and 50 covering and concealing the line of stitching 3. The backing strip may be impregnated with shellac or lacquer to give it greater rigidity, but as this treatment destroys its absorption proper ties, is not generally adopted. 55 As shown in Fig. 4, a rubberized fabric sweat strip 4, having a stiifening core 5, is then stitched along the lower edge of the “right” side of the face strip I, by a line of stitching 6 which also secures the lower edge of the backing strip 2. The lower edge of the face strip I is then folded to bring the sweat strip 5 to the wrong surface of the completed band, as shown in Fig. 5, thus removing the line of stitching 6 to that surface, and providing an overhang of face strip I which covers and conceals this line of stitching. 10 The constructed composite band is then ironed , to flatten the folds and to give a good appear ance to the face strip. The complete band is in serted into and secured in the headwear in known manner. 15 It will be observed that there are no lines of stitches on the “right” side of the completed band, thus improving the appearance, and min imizing the contamination of the hat by grease and sweat by means of “wick feeding” through the stitches. Further, the backing strip and face strip are not adhered together, except along their edges, which facilitates the passage of air between these units for ventilation` purposes. The backing strip 25 2 absorbs moisture and minimizes the passage of such moisture to the material of the hat. The backing strip 2, though preferably extend ing completely around the head band, may, if de~ sired, be limited to that region of the band 30 adapted to contact the forehead of the wearer. I claim: 1. A head band for headwear comprising a tex tile face strip to contact the head of the wearer and treated with waterproof solution, an absorp 35 tion backing strip disposed on the “wrong” sur face of the face strip and secured thereto ad jacent the upper and lower edges of the face strip, and a waterproof sweat strip secured to the face strip adjacent the lower edge thereof, fur 40 ther characterized in that the face strip is folded to overlie and conceal the row or rows of stitch ing- attaching the backing strip and sweat strip to the face strip. 2. A head band for use in headwear, including 45 a facing strip of waterproofed textile material to contact the head of the wearer, and an absorp tion strip of fabric disposed on the “wrong” side of the facing strip and secured thereto at its upper and lower edges, the upper portions of the 50 facing and absorption strips being inturned in opposite directions to conceal the raw edges. 3. A head band for headwear comprising a fac ing strip of textile material treated with a water proof solution and having its upper edge folded 55 2 2,106,075 over to the “wrong” side, a backing strip of mate rial of absorptive character having its upper edge folded over and secured to the folded over por tion of the facing strip, and a sweat strip of rub berized fabric attached along one edge to the lower portion of the facing strip on‘ the» “right” side thereof, said facing strip and backing strip being folded outwardly and upwardly on a line located above the attached edge of the sweat strip so that the sweat strip is disposed on that side of the backing strip which is remote from the facing strip.
