About our Earthly Twilight Collection
The Earthly Twilight Collection explores the stages of the sun and what its position can make us feel. Twilight is the moment when the sun is resting just below the horizon before it rises or after it has set. It leaves us with a soft glow and powdery hues. This quiet moment brings about optimism for the day that will come or the resetting and leaving behind the worries of a day that has passed.
It is when we can hear the smallest of creatures rejoicing to one another and sets the tone for the day that will follow.
Inspiration behind the Name
The Dot is named for Dorothy Braden who was a high school physics and french teacher until she heard that the Army was looking for college-educated southern teachers. The details of the position were vague and the strange interview was held in a random hotel room, but according to her she was "up for anything at that point."
In just a few weeks, Dot learned Japanese and became an expert cryptographer. She even knew that the Japanese had surrendered before President Truman did. This job was very hush-hush, so Dot and her coworkers were threatened with espionage punishable by life in prison.
In 2017, after the NSA declassified everything, Dot was eventually convinced to tell her amazing story which can now be enjoyed for generations to come.
The Dot is a special handbag. Not only does it pay homage to an incredible woman, it also empowers military spouses today. Each part and piece of the Dot is handcrafted by military spouses across the country, allowing them to earn flexible, mobile income in a transient life with their soldier.
Maintenance of R. Riveter Leather:
We love using real veg tanned leather in our handbags because they just better with age. If you happen to get scratches or water marks, you can usually get the bag looking new again with just a little maintenance.

Canvas Care Suggestions:
When spot cleaning the canvas, we suggest using a brush or sponge with water only to wipe it off soiled area. We do not recommend using anything other than water as it could discolor canvas material.
