American Handmade | Made by Military Spouses
R. Riveter was created to provide mobile and flexible income to military spouses. The one of a kind handbag company was born out of a mix of frustration, passion, and creativity and designed to help chip away at the heart of military spouse employment woes. Manufacturing, an increasingly technical and outsourced process, for R. Riveter, has become a renaissance of the American dream stitched together and embedded in our hand dyed leather and canvas bags and accessories.
The R. Riveter story has been created chapter by chapter by the hand of each individual military spouse involved in the company. Purse parts are made by military spouses from wherever the military relocation takes them, making each R. Riveter bag a symbol of the American spirit. All of the pieces meet at R. Riveter central fabrication shop in Southern Pines, NC. There, they are assembled into the final, one-of-a-kind product, which is named after an influential military spouses. When you purchase a handbag from R. Riveter, you hold in yout hands a collaboration of strength, humility and patriotism, with each military spouse leaving behind a little piece of herself in each authentic edition.
