Beautiful Blooms: Honoring Service Members and Military Spouses

Even here at R.Riveter, April showers bring May flowers.  


This month we’re honoring those who have sacrificed for our countries—from service members to military spouses. We can never thank them enough for their hard work and commitment. 

Celebrate their dedication to our country every day with our new floral embroidered Otto handbags. 

The Special Edition Otto Bag for National Poppy Day 


An international holiday, Poppy Day is dedicated to the remembrance of fallen service members and the support of those still living that donned our nation’s uniform. The American Legion, the nation’s largest veterans service organization, established a new holiday in the United States by asking Congress to dedicate the Friday before Memorial Day as National Poppy Day.  

This year, on May 26, we ask you to join us in wearing a red poppy to honor those that have served our country. And our new embroidered Otto handbag is perfect for the occasion.   

We’re partnering with The American Legion Family ALA for National Poppy Day to bring you our signature Otto handbag in Navy canvas embroidered with bright red poppies. 

The Special Edition Poppy Otto bag includes rich brown leather accents, an adjustable crossbody strap, and functional handles. Water-resistant canvas, brass feet, and multiple interior and exterior pockets keep your items safe and organized.  

Style 01: The Otto, Classic Navy with Poppy embroidery.

Since World War I, the poppy has served as a symbol for memorializing the loss of many during wartime, and our Special Edition Poppy Otto is a heartfelt way to carry on the tradition of honoring those who have made unthinkable sacrifices for our freedom.  

 The Special Edition Wildflower Otto 


We like to think of wildflowers as the unofficial mascot of military spouses worldwide. These beautiful little blooms represent strength, individuality, and resilience—three traits we often attribute to military spouses.  

Military spouses have the strength to weather the many ups and downs of military life, they maintain their individuality because they must often be on their own, and they build resilience through every change, every move, and every lesson learned.  

Our Special Edition Wildflower Otto encourages all of us to bloom where we are planted—something that military spouses must do with every duty station change. The fatigue canvas bag is accented with eye-catching purple and orange wildflowers. And Riveter Tan leather trim adds a touch of tradition and class to our signature design.  

Style 02: The Otto, Fatigue with Wildflower embroidery.

Ready for everything from running errands to traveling the world, our Special Edition Wildflower Otto celebrates military spouses everywhere.  

Celebrate service members and military spouses in style 

Here at R.Riveter, we’re on a mission to honor the military community and to empower military spouses with long-term employment opportunities.  

Each R.Riveter handbag takes a journey across the country before arriving at your doorstep. Components are crafted by independent military spouses in their homes around the nation, and shipped to R.Riveter's FabShop to be assembled into a one-of-a-kind product. 

Shop our Special Edition Poppy Otto and Wildflower Otto today. Like fresh spring blooms, these bags won’t be available for long.
