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
Copal varnish ______________________________ _„ l
Mineral turpentine ________________________ __ 8
Whitelead ___________________ „_, ___________ __
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.
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.
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
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
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.
