Inspiration Behind the Name The Josie Mini Backpack honors American inventor Josephine Cochrane, who designed the first successful hand-powered dishwasher. Born in 1839 in Ohio, Josephine moved to Chicago in 1870 with her husband. After several of her heirloom dishes were chipped during clean up after a dinner party, Josephine sought a better alternative to cleaning china.
Once she received her patent in 1886, she founded a manufacturing company to manufacture her new dishwashing machines. Her invention won the prize for “best mechanical construction, durability and adaption to its line of work” at the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893. Josephine was post-humously inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2006.
The Josie Mini Backpack celebrates Josephine Cochran’s dedication to finding a solution and the uphill battle she fought against gender stereotypes as a female inventor in the 1800s.
