Meet the Harriet. Our newest shopper - a thoughtful approach to extreme function that you’ll use all day, every day. This perfect tote is updated with additional pockets for organization, our signature leather bucket bottom with protective brass feet, zip top closure, and longer shoulder traps for an easy carry.
The front of the Harriet is finished with our R. Riveter Story Tag, proudly representing the Riveters across the country who have worked on the bag.
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:
Harriet Chalmers Adams (1875 –1937) was a renowned American Adventurer. She traveled over a hundred thousand miles, wrote and photographed her adventures and captivated audiences all over the world for publications like the National Geographic, the NY Times and Harpers.
Harriet also worked as a war correspondent during WWI – and was the only female journalist permitted to visit the trenches. She traveled as a fearless trailblazer – but she also helped launch the Society of Woman Geographers in 1925 to help pave the way for other females in the industry.
Maintenance of R. Riveter Leather:
We love using real genuine leather in our handbags because they just get 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.
