The Ada is the ultimate day-tripper – this bag is ready for work or pleasure. A Roomy interior clad with 2 interior slip pockets and one zipper pockets means you can pack it full but keep those essentials right where you need them when you need them. The brass, luxury zipper closure secures the main compartment. Our classic black and natural stripe liner keeps the inside of the Ada feeling as chic as the woman who carries it. The front exterior zipper pocket spans the entire width of the bag and includes a smaller interior slip pocket for additional organization.
The 18 oz cotton canvas, boosting a water-resistant finish, is paired with full grain leather base and trim, finished on all sides, and topped off with brass hardware for a refined, authentic experience. The leather base with brass feet keeps your bag upright and off the ground.
The Ada comes equipped with 2 shoulder straps for a close to the body carry and a detachable and adjustable (1 inch) matching leather crossbody strap – for hands free when those day adventures call for it.
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.
INSPIRATION BEHIND THE NAME
Ada Lovelace was a mathematics wiz at a young age. By the tender age of 17, she was working alongside incredible scientists and intellectuals. (Talk about intimidating.) As she translated mathematician Luigi Menabrea’s work, she added notes of her own which described a method for calculating an algorithm, or in other terms, she basically was first to write the code for computer programming. Not to mention she did this in 1843. This code had the possibility to carry out other functions planned in advance (hello modern day technology!).
Without her out-of-the-box thinking and dreaming, we might still be using computers solely to crunch numbers.
R.Riveter’s vegetable tanned leather and cotton canvas are carefully selected for durability and longevity. Our materials are made to preserve natural characteristics, which will wear uniquely with age. Some color transfer on light colored clothing is possible due to the natural dying process.
For day-to-day care, leather can be dusted with a dry, lint-free cloth to prevent dirt and dust build up. For long-term leather care, we recommend the use of R.Riveter’s Leather Care products, which consist of a leather salve and polishing cloth, specifically designed for the use on R.Riveter leather.

Canvas & Liner Care:
Spot clean stains with a clean, damp cloth and mild soap or detergent, using a blotting motion.
Disclaimer: Due to the nature of dyed natural materials, crocking of fabric is expected and normal.
