    Abstract: A fabric-based electronic device sleeve with a stiff directional nap lining the interior of a pocket. The directional nap (or plush) of the fabric is oriented to permit easy slidable insertion of an electronic device into the sleeve's pocket, with static friction forces between the directional nap and the device preventing the device from slipping out on its own or falling from the sleeve when held in a downward direction. As a user removes the electronic device from the sleeve, a gentle pull upon pinching the device between thumb and index finger overcomes the static friction forces between the device and the directional nap lining to permit easy removal and access.

  • Publication number: 20130071050
    Abstract: The food drainage bag is a flexible drainage bag fabricated from a fine-mesh material having non-stick properties. The bag is utilized to drain excess liquid from frozen or fresh food items. Liquids can be made to drain more quickly from the foods simply gently by squeezing the bag. Alternatively, foods may be allowed to drain naturally if desired. The bag is easily cleaned and may be folded for storage or positioned on a hook to dry when not in use. The interior of the bag may be treated with a non-stick, non-toxic material to further enhance its non-stick properties.

  • Publication number: 20130028541
    Abstract: A storage bag for holding objects and materials is disclosed. The storage bag includes a pair of outer sheets and an inner sheet. The outer sheets are coupled by three seams. The storage bag has a cavity between the outer sheets and an opening. The inner sheet is mounted between portions of the outer sheets near the opening. The third sheet extends across the outer sheets between a pair of seams. The inner sheet has three layers that are coupled to each other. A first layer is coupled to one of the outer sheets by another seam and a third layer is adapted to be heat bonded to the other outer sheet. A weak bond area is formed between the third layer and the outer sheet. The weak bond allows the storage bag to be easily opened. A method of manufacturing the storage bag is also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20120294554
    Abstract: A transporting bag structure is provided, which includes: a bag body, including an opening and an accommodating space; and a channel pipe, connected the accommodating space and an outside space. A first end of the channel pipe is exposed out of the bag body. A second end of the channel pipe is located inside the accommodating space. A gas and a fluid flow into the accommodating space to form a gas layer and a fluid layer. The channel pipe penetrates the gas layer and enables the second end to be immersed in the fluid layer. The channel pipe is closed by being pressed in a segmented manner due to pressure differentials of the layers, so that the gas of the gas layer is not able to flow back out of the accommodating space via the channel pipe, and the fluid of the fluid layer is unable to flow back.
