American Handmade | Made by Military Spouses
R. Riveter is a company born out of a sense of military community. As military spouses, there is a pride and a passion that gives our company a unique identity.Our handbags are inspired by a unique lifestyle that brings both challenges and opportunities. The company goes far beyond the creation of unique, handmade purses. R. Riveter was founded on providing inspiration and opportunity to other military wives. Using up-cycled military materials, our handbags bring together elegance and history in a product entirely made by hand. With classic simplicity, rugged design, and modern styling, our military inspired handbags fit any occasion.
It is our mission at R. Riveter to inspire pride and patriotism into the hearts of each customer. We delight in the fact that we are completely ‘homegrown’ and produce high quality, well crafted items. Our collection of handbags will build the foundation of a company dedicated to serving the spouses of our service members.
We are inspired by the challenges of our day and innovations that evolve as a result. Old military materials like duffle bags, wool blankets, and shelter halves are up-cycled with a modern aesthetic producing a kind of character that is totally unique and full of history.
IT IS OUR MISSION TO RENEW THE ROMANCE THAT ONCE WAS AND TO INSPIRE PRIDE AND PATRIOTISM INTO THE HEARTS OF MANY. A NOTION MUCH LIKE THAT EXEMPLIFIED BY ROSIE THE RIVETER, THE CULTURAL ICON FOR WHICH THE COMPANY WAS NAMED.
