Inspiration Behind the Name
The Wilson Tote was inspired by Edith Wilson, the first woman who secretly served as acting President of the United States.
In the fall of 1919, when President Woodrow Wilson suffered a paralyzing stroke, his wife Edith began to handle day-to-day responsibilities of the Executive Office. She attended meetings and screened all matters of state, deciding which issues were important enough to bring to her bedridden husband. Edith continued this “stewardship” until the term ended in 1921, unofficially running the country months before women had the right to vote.
The Wilson Market Tote carries on the legacy of a strong, progressive woman whose dedication to her country and her family can inspire women everywhere.

Nylon Care Instructions:
Spot clean with warm water, gentle soap and a soft, damp cloth. Allow to air dry.
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.
