  • Publication number: 20080105508
    Abstract: A two-in-one handbag has different color patterns in two different closed positions. The handbag's two connected halves have inner rectangular facades and have outer arcuate facades having multiple horizontal segment, the first and second halves each having a substantially D-shaped cross-section. Flaps alternately cover the contiguous horizontal segments have outer sides of a first color and undersides of a second color so that a different color pattern emerges in the first closed position as compared to the second closed position. After the handbag is opened normally into two halves, it can continue to be opened when the halves continue to be rotated away from each to reach the second closed position by rotating the first outer arcuate facade along an entire surface of the second outer arcuate facade or vice versa. Each half's compartment is covered by a zippered cover to store objects. Reinforcing closure devices include magnets, snaps, Velcro.

  • Patent number: 7246643
    Abstract: A transformable purse system that includes a base, multiple purse covers, multiple handle options, and alternatively multiple decorative clip options. The covers wrap around the purse base such that the ends of the base are left exposed and the end of the cover forms a lid. The decorative clips may be attached at the point where the lid fastens to the purse. The covers may be attached with hook-and-loop fasteners such that they are easily interchangeable without removing the contents of the purse. The straps may similarly be attached using hook-and-loop fasteners and rest in grooves in the base ends, and may be further secured in place using rods at the top of the base ends.

  • Patent number: 6880685
    Abstract: A light-weight side gusset for a bag includes a formed composite frame having a peripheral raised region and a depressed central region. An opening through the depressed central region forms a relatively narrow border portion around the inner periphery of the raised region. A central panel corresponding in configuration to the outline of the depressed region is attached to the border portion of the depressed region to cover the opening therethrough. The composite frame is made up of a moldable substrate, e.g. ethyl vinyl acetate foam, an outer layer wear-resistant material, e.g., high-denier nylon or poly/nylon combination, and, preferably, an inner adherent layer, e.g., the loop half of a hook-and-loop fabric. Methods of manufacturing the composite frame, a gusset including such frame, and a bag including such gusset are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20040187987
    Abstract: A shaped resilient foam insert and a method of maintaining a shape and reducing wrinkling and creasing of a handbag during storage are provided. The method includes opening the handbag to expose an interior cavity thereof which is formed by walls of the handbag. The interior cavity has a first set of dimensions and the shaped resilient foam body (insert) is disposed within the interior cavity. The foam body has a second set of dimensions with at least one dimension of the second set being greater than one dimension of the first set so that the foam body applies an outward force against walls of the handbag so that the handbag maintains its shape during storage and the walls are supported during storage so as to help prevent wrinkling and creasing of the handbag.
