GARMENT POCKET AND METHOD OF MAKING SAME

RELATED APPLICATIONS

[0001] This application claims priority to U.S. Patent Application No. 16/854,187 filed on April 21, 2020, which claims priority to U.S. Provisional Patent Application No. 62/837,949 filed on April 24, 2019, both of which are incorporated by reference herein.

TECHNICAL FIELD

[0002] The present application relates to leisure-ware clothing, and in particular to garments for use in yoga and/or meditation.

BACKGROUND

[0003] Wellness brand clothing articles are known, for example for use in exercising, yoga and/or meditation. “Athleisure clothing,” as such garments may be called, are aimed at a variety of markets, and implement designs that not only address the visual manifestation of a concept, but also the physical elements required in garments capable of being worn during various levels of activity. Comfort and fit are important considerations, regardless of concept. For garments that involve accessories associated with the garment and concept, fit, and accommodation and integration of the accessories are often not easily achieved.

SUMMARY

[0004] Garments according to the disclosure provide yoga and meditation clothing that implement fit and comfort, and integrate accessories in the form of meditative crystals in a comfort and retention pocket that integrates the crystal accessory in a design that visually matches the meaning and pertinent location of the crystal accessory.

[0005] According to the disclosure, athleisure clothing , such as a meditation or yoga garment, is provided in various styles and fits that include at least one accessory pocket configured to comfortably accommodate and retain meditation crystals or stones in discrete pockets strategically placed at chakra locations within garments where stones may be placed for maximum benefit.

[0006] The at least one accessory pocket comprises an elastic pocket opening in the form of a slit, e.g., a silicone slit in the garment fabric. The elastic pocket opening provides access to a pocket bag, dimensioned to accommodate and retain a chakra crystal. A color strip is implemented interior to the pocket and is at least partially visible from an exterior of the pocket, to indicate a particular chakra crystal or stone that is appropriate to the particular pocket location.

[0007] Particular chakra crystal pocket locations are selected to place chakra crystals in chakra locations corresponding, i.e. proximate in location, to at least one of seven chakra glands. The crystal pockets will be placed over, i.e. proximate to, at least one of the chakra glands, including a Root chakra crystal pocket over the prostate skene gland, a Sacral chakra crystal pocket over ovaries/testis (Gonads), a Solar chakra crystal pocket over the pancreas/adrenal gland, a Heart chakra crystal pocket over the thymus gland, a Throat chakra crystal pocket over the thyroid gland, a Brow chakra crystal pocket over the pituitary gland, and a Crown chakra crystal pocket over pineal gland.

[0008] Color strips corresponding to the foregoing particular chakra crystal or stone and location are implemented interior to the particular chakra pocket, and are at least partially visible from the exterior of the pocket. The color strips, to indicate the chakra stone/crystal appropriate to the particular pocket location, may include: Purple, Dark Blue, Light Blue, Light Green, Yellow, Light Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, or Red.

[0009] Further, multiple pockets may be located over a chakra gland. The pockets may be separate or formed of a single pocket including a divider. As a result, multiple crystals of the same or different type may be placed over a chakra gland without coming into contact with each other.

[0010] The accessory pocket may alternatively be configured to adhere directly to the body proximate to the chakra gland if preferred. A further embodiment of the accessory pocket may be applied as a patch to personal accessories. Additionally, the accessory pocket may include an adhesive for placement by a practitioner on an athleisure clothing article. As a result, a practitioner may locate the accessory pocket in a location more aligned with their personal chakra structure.

[0011] A further embodiment of the accessory pocket may be applied as a patch to personal accessories such as, but not limited to, water bottles, towels, yoga mats, pocketbooks, handbags, and wallets.

[0012] The above summary has outlined, rather broadly, some features and advantages of the present disclosure in order that the detailed description that follows may be better understood. Additional features and advantages of the disclosure will be described below. It should be appreciated by those skilled in the art that this disclosure may be readily utilized as a basis for modifying or designing other structures for carrying out the same purposes of the present disclosure. It should also be realized by those skilled in the art that such equivalent constructions do not depart from the teachings of the disclosure as set forth in the appended claims. The novel features, which are believed to be characteristic of the disclosure, both as to its organization and method of operation, together with further objects and advantages, will be better understood from the following description when considered in connection with the accompanying figures. It is to be expressly understood, however, that each of the figures is provided for the purpose of illustration and description only and is not intended as a definition of the limits of the present disclosure.

DETAIFED DESCRIPTION

[0020] The detailed description set forth below, in connection with the appended drawings, is intended as a description of various configurations and is not intended to represent the only configurations in which the concepts described herein may be practiced. The detailed description includes specific details for the purpose of providing a thorough understanding of the various concepts. It will be apparent to those skilled in the art, however, that these concepts may be practiced without these specific details. In some instances, well-known structures and components are shown in block diagram form in order to avoid obscuring such concepts. As described herein, the use of the term“and/or” is intended to represent an“inclusive OR”, and the use of the term“or” is intended to represent an“exclusive OR”.

[0021] Garments according to the disclosure provide athleisure clothing, such as yoga and meditation clothing, that implement fit and comfort, and integrate accessories in the form of meditative crystals in a comfort and retention pocket. The comfort and retention pocket integrates the crystal accessory in a garment and pocket design that visually matches the meaning and pertinent location of the crystal accessory.

[0022] According to the disclosure, a meditation and yoga garment is provided in various styles and fits that include at least one accessory pocket configured to comfortably accommodate and retain meditation crystals or stones in discrete pockets strategically placed at chakra locations within garments where stones/crystals may be placed for maximum benefit.

[0023] Garment fabric, for athleisure clothing according to the disclosure, that may be used for meditation and/or yoga, may be made from an inner shell, made for example of heavyweight poly-spandex knit, content: 76% polyester, 24% Spandex. Outer (or inner) layer panels may be selectively located and formed of wicking materials, such as stretch mesh lace constructed of 93% polyester and 7% Spandex. It should be appreciated that more or less than two layers may be implemented as a function of the garment. Similarly, other materials may be implemented depending on the nature and function of the garment (e.g., cover-ups may be made of loose-fitting cotton, processed bamboo or hemp, rather than polyester and/or Spandex materials that may be used in athleisure exercise garments). Accessory pockets as described herein may be implemented in garments having any of various numbers of layers, and made of various other materials, without departing from the scope of this disclosure.

[0024] As illustrated in FIG. 1, the accessory pocket 100 comprises an elastic pocket opening or slit 102 for access and closure of a pocket according to the disclosure. In an embodiment, the elastic pocket slit may be implemented in the form of a silicone slit adhered to an outer shell fabric 104 such as the garment fabric. The silicone slit 102 may take the form of a strip 106 of silicone material, e.g., of a width of approximately 3/4 inch, printed over (or otherwise adhered to) the outer shell fabric 104. The slit 102 may be laser cut through both the silicone strip and underlying shell(s) material. It should be appreciated that other flexible material may be used to implement a flexible slit that flexes to receive a stone or crystal through the slit, such as other polymeric materials, thin film rubber or the like, and that the slit may be other than laser cut through the silicone strip (e.g., by scissor, knife or other mode of manual or machine cutting). Similarly, rather than flexible, resilient opening and closure, the pocket slit may be implemented with other passive or active closure mechanisms, including but not limited to hook and pile, plastic or polymer zipper mechanisms, re-sealable synthetic (or organic) fiber fastener tape, extruded arrowhead-and-channel interlock systems, or the like.

[0025] The elastic pocket opening or slit 102 provides access to a pocket bag, 108 formed behind and beneath the pocket slit 102. The pocket bag 108 may be dimensioned to accommodate a chakra crystal or stone.

[0026] For example, the pocket bag in an illustrative embodiment may be approximately 2.25 inches wide by 3.00 inches in length. The pocket bag may be formed by securing edges of elastic pocket material onto the back (interior side) of the shell material 104. The pocket material may be padded on the inside or be of a thickness that minimizes the presence of the accessory against the wearer’s body. A color strip 110 may be configured to adhere into the interior of the pocket bag 108, For example, the color strip 1 10 may be dimensioned to be approximately 2 inches by 2.75 inches and to be adhered to the pocket bag material. The color strip may be adhered to the interior of the pocket bag material before the pocket bag material edges are secured to the interior side of the shell material 104. Alternatively, the color strip may be a particular color printed, dyed or otherwise disposed on the interior of the pocket bag material as a part of the pocket bag material interior.

[0027] The color strip 1 10 is implemented interior to the pocket and is at least partially visible from an exterior of the pocket, for example through the slit 102. The color strip provides a color code for location of an accessory corresponding to the location. In this embodiment the color strip 1 10 is a color to indicate a particular chakra crystal or stone that is appropriate to the particular pocket location. That is, the color strip corresponds to the particular chakra crystal or stone that is to be located in that particular pocket location that corresponds to that particular chakra gland/location. The color strips, to indicate the chakra stone/crystal appropriate to the particular pocket location, may include: Purple, Dark Blue, Light Blue, Light Green, Yellow, Light Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, or Red.

[0028] FIGS. 2-14, illustrate various designs of garments, having accessory pockets in selected location(s) on a garment panel. Particular chakra crystal pocket locations are selected to place chakra crystals in chakra locations corresponding to at least one of seven chakra glands. The crystal pockets are located to place a corresponding chakra crystal over or proximate to at least one of the chakra glands, including a Crown chakra crystal pocket (interior purple) proximate to the pineal gland, a Third Eye (or Brow) chakra crystal pocket (interior dark blue) proximate to the pituitary gland, a Throat chakra crystal pocket (interior light blue) proximate to the thyroid gland, a Heart chakra crystal pocket (interior light green) proximate to the thymus gland, a Solar plexus chakra crystal pocket (interior yellow) proximate to the pancreas/adrenal gland, a Sacral chakra crystal pocket (interior orange) proximate to ovaries/testis (Gonads), and a Root chakra crystal pocket (interior red) proximate to the prostate skene gland.

[0029] FIG. 2 illustrates a long bra wrap garment 200, and shows a front and back of the garment. The wrap garment includes two accessory or crystal pockets, 202 and 204, in this embodiment. In particular, this embodiment may include a Solar plexus crystal pocket 202 (i.e. interior yellow) and a heart chakra crystal pocket 204 (i.e. interior light green).

[0030] FIG. 3 illustrates a bra top garment 300, and shows a front and back of the garment. The top 300 garment includes one accessory or crystal pocket, 302, in this embodiment. In particular, this embodiment may include a heart chakra crystal pocket 302 (i.e. interior light green).

A sweatshirt garment (not shown, but essentially analogous to the tee garment but with long sleeves in a shirt form), could be similarly configured with all but the Throat chakra crystal pocket because the sweatshirt does not extend to the thyroid gland region, so would only accommodate three pockets on its front, specifically the Heart chakra crystal pocket proximate to the heart (i.e. interior light green), the Solar plexus crystal pocket, and Sacral chakra crystal pocket (i.e. interior orange). [0038] FIGS. 12 and 13 illustrate chakra pocket placement for Crown and Third Eye chakra crystals, in a hooded sweatshirt or soft-shelled jacket garment. In particular, these figures illustrate a Third Eye (or Brow) chakra crystal pocket 1202 (interior dark blue) proximate to the pituitary gland, and a Crown chakra crystal pocket 1204 (interior purple) proximate to the pineal gland. It should be appreciated that, although not shown in FIGS. 12 and 13, the hooded sweatshirt or soft-shelled jacket garment therein may be configured with all 7 chakra pockets, positioned as described and illustrated herein with respect to FIGS. 2-1 1 (some of which may be hidden, for example, behind a front flap of the jacket).

[0039] FIG. 14 illustrates a yoga cover-up garment 1400, and shows a front and back of the garment. The yoga cover-up garment includes three accessory or crystal pockets, 1402, 1404 and 1406, in this embodiment, with two pockets in the front 1402 and 1404, and one in the back 1406. In particular, this embodiment may include a Heart chakra crystal pocket 1402 (i.e. interior light green), and a Solar plexus crystal pocket 1404 (i.e. interior yellow) located in the front. This embodiment may also include a Throat chakra crystal pocket 1406 (interior light blue) proximate to the thyroid gland in the back of the garment 1400.

[0040] Although particular garments are illustrated herein, with particular pocket locations, it should be appreciated that pockets may be located on the front and/or back of garments according to the disclosure. Further, more or fewer chakra pockets may be implemented in any given garment. For example, although the hooded sweatshirt or jacket described herein illustrates Crown and Third Eye chakra pockets, the garment may accommodate other accessory pockets as a function of the area(s) covered by the garment.

[0041] It should be appreciated that wearers of garments according to the disclosure may need to be aware of imbalance in their body and/or energy, and place crystals near the chakra with the intention of healing and balancing chakras of the wearer. FIG. 15 generally illustrates chakra gland relationships. It should be appreciated that chakra locations do not need to be precise or colors exact or as disclosed herein, in order to be within the scope of this disclosure.

[0042] FIG. 16 illustrates steps in a process 1600 for creating an accessory or crystal storage pocket according to the disclosure. In a step, 1602, flexible and resilient material such as silicone is adhered to the outer shell fabric (again, other pocket access and closure mechanisms may be implemented). A pocket slit may then be cut, in a step 1604, through the flexible and resilient material and shell to provide access to the pocket. Edges of a pocket bag may be secured to the interior of an inner shell of the garment, in a step 1606, to construct the pocket bag behind and accessible through the pocket slit. It should be appreciated that the pocket bag may be secured by any of various attachment mechanisms including adhesives, sewing or other threaded attachments, claps, mechanical fixtures (removable or non-removable) or the like. Accessory or crystal color may be adhered to the interior of the pocket bag, in a step 1608, again by any of various adhering approaches as described herein (such as dying of interior fabric, placement of a color strip, use of a fitted color fabric, or the like). It is desirable that a portion of the color strip be visible via the pocket slit, as described. It should be appreciated that the foregoing steps do not need to necessarily be performed in the order described, and one skilled in the art will appreciate that the order is not essential.

[0043] According to the disclosure, stones or crystals are such that they have different messages and energy associated with the stones/crystals. It should be appreciated that such spiritual nature may be associated with different shapes, colors, and/or textures, other than as described herein.

[0044] Other crystals associated with crystal energy healing may drive the inspiration of the clothing/garments, and placement of pockets and color strips for corresponding stones/crystals. Each article of clothing may have a target theme and the stones and intentions will revolve around the theme, for example a protection theme may help to protect the personal energy field, to protect the environment around the wearer, to cleanse stagnant or negative energy, and/or to transform negative energy into positive energy, helping you to build up an emotional resilience. Different colors and/or textures may be implemented accordingly.

[0045] FIG. 17 illustrates a further embodiment of a process 1700 for creating an accessory or crystal storage pocket or patch according to the disclosure. In a preliminary additional step 1710, a frame may be provided, such as being applied to the outer shell fabric where the pocket bag is to be formed. The remaining steps in the process 1700 for creating an accessory or crystal storage pocket according to the disclosure are largely as described hereinbefore with respect to FIG. 16, resulting in a structure largely as described and illustrated with respect to FIG. 1. The frame may be used to provide support and structure to the pocket bag as described hereinbefore or a stand-alone pocket patch as described hereinafter. For example, when the pocket bag is intended to be a stand-alone container, the frame ensures stability and structural support for the pocket bag. As a result, the pocket bag may be adhered directly to a practitioner’s body, to athleisure wear and/or to personal items.

[0046] For example, as illustrated in a further embodiment shown in FIG. 18, an accessory pocket 1800 may be formed as a stand-alone pocket or patch. The outer shell fabric 1804 is a stand-alone piece of fabric. The accessory pocket 1800 formed as a stand-alone pocket or patch may include a film frame 1812 to provide support to the accessory pocket’s structure. The accessory pocket 1800 once formed using the steps described above, and in further detail in FIGs. 16 and 17, may be adhered to a piece of athleisure wear or a personal possession by a practitioner. The practitioner may also directly adhere the accessory pocket 1800 to the practitioner’s body to maximize proximity to their chakra location. As a result, the practitioner may align the accessory pocket 1800 with their personal chakra structure for a more personalized experience. In a still further embodiment, the stand-alone accessory pocket 1800 may be configured to adhere to personal accessories. In this way, a practitioner may carry their chakra crystal and/or other personal effects even when not wearing the above-described athleisure wear. The stand-alone pocket or patch embodiment may be applied to a water bottle, a swim towel, a bag such as a handbag or golf bag, a phone case, jewelry, shoes, and/or other personal accessories. As a result, a practitioner may keep the chakra crystal close by at all times during normal daily activities. The presence of the chakra crystal, as discussed elsewhere in the disclosure, promotes the health of the practitioner.

[0047] A family conscious practitioner may also apply an embodiment of the chakra pocket/pouch to home goods such as candles, night lights, home furnishings, phones, humidifiers/dehumidifiers, beds and associated sheets/pillows, and books to promote wellness while in the home. In a further embodiment, the chakra pouch may be applied to children’s toys such as a plush teddy bear, blanket, night lights, toy cars, dolls, playsets, and bath toys such as rubber duckies. During holidays such as Halloween, the chakra pocket/pouch may be applied to costumes, for example a pirate outfit may feature at least an embodiment of the pouch on the toy sword and/or eyepatch or pirate hat. An astronaut costume may feature an embodiment of the pouch on the helmet. Thereby allowing a celebrant of the holiday to promote their health even while indulging in sweets and an overabundance of food.

[0048] Additional embodiments may be designed for use around the home, for example on a bath towel or oven mitt. Further embodiments may be designed for adhering to sports equipment such as golf bags, swimsuits, tennis rackets, badminton rackets, shuffleboard pucks, lacrosse sticks, baseball gloves and mitts, golf clubs, and soccer cleats. As discussed above, a practitioner may also adhere an embodiment of the crystal patch to items around their home and/or in their family’s lives to ensure the wellbeing of the household. Further embodiments of the disclosure may be adhered to other articles such as vehicles, doors, a mailbox, a desk, and exercise equipment to ensure maximized transmission of the chakra energies throughout the practitioner’s life experience. [0049] In an embodiment, the pocket bag 108 may be alternately sized and used to accommodate personal belongings in place of or in addition to the chakra crystal or stone. The pocket bag 108, in pouch, pocket, or patch embodiments, may be used to contain, alone or in addition to a chakra crystal, gemstones, minerals, crystals, rocks, charms of various metals and other materials, beads, pearls, and worry dolls. The pocket bag 108 may also be sized to hold personal effects such as glasses, wallet, phone, keys, identification materials, and music players.

[0050] Some examples have been discussed above but should not be construed as an exhaustive list. The health of a practitioner is promoted by the presence of the chakra crystal and the crystal pocket/pouch/patch of the disclosure is intended to facilitate an easy method of keeping at least one chakra crystal near or on the practitioner’s person as often as possible. The present disclosure seeks to promote the health of the practitioner by allowing the practitioner the ability to adhere the patch to objects they interact with to ensure their wellbeing and optimized health.

[0051] Although the present disclosure and its advantages have been described in detail, it should be understood that various changes, substitutions and alterations can be made herein without departing from the technology of the disclosure as defined by the appended claims. For example, relational terms, such as“above” and“below” may be used with respect to components. Of course, if the component is inverted, above becomes below, and vice versa.
