CROSS-REFERENCE OF FREE STANDING AND PACKAGING BAG

This is a new one of a kind packaging bag with such features of having the ability to Free Stand and fold for storage purposes.

The current packaging bag cannot free stand with the ability of maintaining an open mouth, and its shape. To use the average Free Standing Bag having to use machines and manpower is mandatory for handling the bulk cargo, which is a waste of manpower, an inconvenience for operations and unhygienic. Current Free Standing Bags have little to no use out of them, which limits industrial fields.

With all of the above in mind my new invention serves the purpose of providing a new packaging bag that can free stand and fold conveniently for storage.

Attaining the physique of our new Freestanding and Folding Bag requires the use of several separated but flexible frame sticks covered in the top and sides of the body. The frame sticks are made from steel or highly strong nylon. In which holds the body of the bag in a prism shape.

The working theory of the new bag is listed as follows: When being used to package the cargo in bulk the frame sticks share the similarity of an umbrella, which is of keeping its shape with out manpower and/or machine making it easy to operate and convenient to use. When the bag is transporting flowers or plants, it needs to have several grommets to keep the bag excellently ventilated.
