Repeating pattern for an embossed paper product

- Fort James Corporation

The sole FIGURE is a top plan view of a repeating pattern for an embossed paper product embodying our design.

The pattern of the claimed design may be applied to either a single or multi-ply paper product. In the FIGURE, the outer broken line border depicts the embossed paper product to which the pattern is applied, and indicates that the paper product continues indeterminately in one or more directions. The dot-dash-dot broken lines represent a single repeat unit of the claimed design, which repeats uniformly throughout the length and width of the paper product. The broken lines and the dot-dash-dot lines are for illustrative purposes only and form no part of the claimed design.
