My invention relates to an improvement in
curtains, and‘ particularlyito an attachment to
tain by interweaving'them‘with the curtain, and
lace curtains and the like whereby the latter may
are
rod
the
are
‘ ‘be suspended from a curtain rod.

'
At the present time various means are employed
to attach a curtain to‘ a rod.
The most common
means is to fold the top of the curtain down
upon itself a short distance, and fasten this
‘folded end to the body of the curtain to form a
10 sleeve for the reception of the rod. In practice,
when the rod is being threaded through the
sleeve, the end of the rod has a tendency to en
gage the threads of’ the curtain, and thereby
tear the curtain.
15
In overcoming the above objections, I attain
the principal object of my invention whereby I
provide means to greatly diminish the likeli
hood of tearing a curtain when a rod is attached
thereto.
‘20

‘ Another object of my invention is to provide
means forattaching a curtain to a rod whereby
the rod is not visible from the inside of the cur- ,
tain.
A further object of my invention is to provide
25 means for facilitating the adjustment of the
‘ length of the curtain.
'
- Other objects of my invention will be, apparent
arranged in a series of rows to permit the
to engage the proper row or rows to adjust
length of the curtain.’ These rows of loops
in alignment with each other, the purpose
of which will be hereinafter explained.
Between the top of the curtain ‘I and the up
permost row of loops 9 there is formed in the cur
tain a rowv of slots l2, which are in alignment 10
with the loops 9, l0 and II. These loops are
adapted to pass through the slots [2 when the
upper portion of the curtain is folded upon- it
self, as is clearly shown in Figures 2, 4, and 6 of
the drawings. By this construction the folded 15
portion ‘la of the curtain ‘l prevents the rod 8
from being visible from the outside of the cur
tain, as shown in Figure 2, and shields that por
tion of the curtain 11) immediately above the fold,
from the rod 8. Moreover, by this construction 20
the top of the curtain is given a ?nished head
1ng_
.
.
In operation, the curtain 1 is so folded upo
itself as to permit the loops 9 to be passed through
the slots l2. When the curtain rod Bis then 25
threaded through the loops 9, the folded por
tion ‘la of the curtain prevents the rod from
from the following description of the present pre being visible from the outside of the curtain,
ferred form thereof, taken in connection with’ and shields the portion lb from the rod. When

Figure '6 is a cross sectional view of the cur

In the drawings, wherein for the purpose of
5 0 illustration is shown a preferred embodiment of
my invention, 1 designates a curtain made of lace
or similar material. The upper portion of this
curtain is provided with retaining means for the
curtain rod 8 by integrally forming with the
55‘ curtain, loops 9, Ill and II.
These loops are
series of loops Ill, and then through the second
loop of the series of loops 9, and so on until the
rod has been attached to the curtain (Figures
3 and 4) . When further adjustment in the length
of the curtain is to be made, the loops 9 are passed
through the slots [2, and the rod 8 is threaded
through loops 9, Ill and H. These loops are
brought together by so folding the curtain as
to position loops 9 and II opposite each other, and
by plaiting that portion 10 of the curtain to al
low the loops ID to be positioned between loops 9
and II, thereby limiting the movement of the
5
curtain '! and the folded portion lb away from >
the rod 8 (Figures 5 and 6).
50
It is to be understood that the form of my
invention herein shown and described is to be
taken as a preferred embodiment of the same,
and the various changes in the shape, size and
arrangement of parts may be made, without de- 55

parting from the spirit of my invention, or the
. scope of the appended claims.
What is claimed is:
1. A device of the character described compris
ing a curtain to be suspended on a rod, loops se
cured to the inner side of the curtain, said cur
tain' having near its top a series of slots in align
ment with said loops, and being folded up on itself
10
for the passage of said loops through said slots.
2. A device of the character described compris
ing a curtain to be suspended on a rod, aligned
loops secured to the curtain and arranged in
rows, said curtain having near its top a series of
slots in alignment with said loops, and being
15 adapted to be folded upon itself for thepassage
of the loops through the slots, and adapted to be
again folded upon itself to bring into contact
the two uppermost rows of loops for engagement
with the rod.
3. A device of the character described com
20
prising ‘a curtain to be suspended on a rod, alined
loops secured to the curtain and arranged in at
least three rows, said curtain having near its top
a series of slots- in alinement with said loops,
and being adapted to be folded upon itself for
the passage of the loops through the slots, and
being adapted to be again folded upon itself 5
whereby the rows of loops may be brought in -
contact for engagement with the rod by plaiting
that portion of the curtain between the folds.
4. As a new article of manufacture, a curtain
provided adjacent one end edge thereof with a 10
transverse row of relatively spaced slots, and
.below said slots with relatively spaced rows of
spaced loops aligning with the slots whereby the
‘loops of a selected row may be passed through
said slots when the curtain is folded at said one
end, and the loops of the ?rst selected row sub
sequently aligned with the loops of a second se
lected row of loops when the curtain is again
folded upon itself to receive a rod trained through
the aligned loops,
