Millett, Grand Rapids, Mich., assignor to Grand Rapids, Grand Rapids Fibre Cord 00., Mich. Application April 13, 1936, Serial No. 74,075 1 Claim. (01. 139-3873) This invention relates to open- mesh bags for strands 1. A plurality of the adjacent strands ‘I extend parallel ‘and form the strip or area 8 of the bag. In the bag illustrated, the warp strands onions and the like. It has been found that such 4 and the weft strands 5 are brown and the warp produce may be most satisfactorily displayed and ‘I are white. This forms a lighter area 8 sold in open mesh bags. In using such a bag 'strands or band on'which a legend or trademark 8 may which fully displays the produce therein and, pro be printed. This band is of open mesh material vides satisfactory ventilation, it has been di?icult and the produce in the bag may be readilyin to amx a trademark or other legend which can spected through the meshes. The closer spacing 10 be clearly seen and recognized without eliminat of the warp strands 1 produces a ?ner mesh on 10 mg the open mesh so as to prevent the full and which the legend or trademark 8 may be printed complete display of the produce in the bag. and it makes the legend stand out more clearly The objects of this invention are: than on the relatively more open mesh of the‘ First, to produce such a bag on which‘ the body portion 3 of the bag. trademark or legend may be satisfactorily dis I have shown the legend printed in red ink 15 played without concealing the produce in the on the area or band 6 and have provided warp bag and without interfering with- the ventilation strands 9 of black outlining the band ‘to provide a margin for the band or area -to improve the ap thereof. ' Second, to'produee such a bag in which a band pearance of the bag. or area of open mesh relatively ?ner than the I have found that in employing the contrasting 20 '20 open mesh of the main body of the bag is pro color warp strands 'l I can obtain the desired vided for the printing of the legend or trademark. result of a contrasting-color ?ner-mesh portion Third, to provide such a bag in which the finer to receive a trademark without varying the color mesh area or band is of a contrasting color. of the weft strands 5 or without varying the Fourth, to provide a method of conveniently spacing thereof, although I prefer on. an ordi 25 and inexpensively producing such an open mesh nary 50-lb. bag to space the weft strands about ag. to the inch and to space the warp strands Further objects and advantages pertaining-t0 seven of the body similarly while spacing the warp details and economies of construction and oper strands 1 about ten. to‘ the inch. Variations ation will de?nitely appear from the description from this, it will be evident, may be made with 30 packaging and vending produce such as potatoes. to follow. A preferred embodiment of my, inven tion is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which: - Fig. 1 is a broken elevation view of a bag em bodying my invention. _ Fig. 2 is a detail view of a portion of the bag 85 shown in Fig. 1. ml'igiii is a sectional view taken on line 3-3 of 8. . The bag I is formed of open mesh material 2. This vmaterial is preferably formed of strands of 40 sulphite kraft stock twisted and woven to form the material of which the bag is formed. The main body portion I of the bag is formed of these paper strands, the warp strands being shown at l and the weft strands at 5. I have ‘found that a most satisfactory bag can be made of the above referred to material in which both the warp strands and the weft strands are spaced approximately seven to the inch. About the center of the bag I provide a band or area 8 of relatively finer 'mesh. This is formed in the weaving of the material of which the bag is made by providing a plurality of warp strands 'I which are of a color contrasting with the warp 55 strands I and the weft strands 5. The warp strands ‘I are spaced relatively closer together ' than the warp strands I which may be described as relatively far apart with reference to the out departing from my invention. The material is woven and folded as shown in Fig. 3 and a line of stitching i0 is provided to seal the edge of the bag. A similar line of stitch ing is provided for the bottom. This construc 35 tion is conventional and has not been described in detail. - I desire to claim the same specifically as well as broadly, as pointedout in the appended claim. Having thus described my invention, what I 40 claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is: An all open mesh bag for produce or the like ' having one side at least formed of a plurality of parallel strands spaced relatively far apart and 45 having interwoven therewith and at right an gles thereto a group of parallel strands of the same size and color as said ?rst mentioned strands and spaced relatively far apart, and another group of parallel strands of the same size as said .50 first mentioned strands but of a contrasting color spaced apart but relatively closer together than the other strands to form on said side of' the . bag a portion of relatively coarse mesh and a v band of relatively ?ner mesh of a contrasting 55 color and with a legend printed‘ on said band.
