R. Riveter Gives Back
While striving to empower military spouses through mobile and creative career opportunities, R. Riveter also makes an effort to partner with like minded Non-Profit, Veteran Owned & Military Spouse founded organizations.
R.Riveter's mission to empower military spouses across the started with a simple idea: to enable spouses to earn mobile, flexible income. Through a unique manufacturing process, independent contractors are able to achieve this goal, by crafting components for R.Riveter handbags and accessories in their homes, no matter where they are located in the United States. R.Riveter’s dreams of helping even more military spouses and families has led to another idea—a program to help grow other military spouse businesses.
We are proud to launch R.Riveter's Military Spouse Entrepreneurship Award. Inspired by our own journey, the opportunity is meant to empower American military families by helping them finance their entrepreneurial endeavors.
A percentage of proceeds from each sale in The R.Riveter Marketplace will go towards the Award. Each year R.Riveter will host a competition, selecting two winners to receive a $2,100 award. These military spouse business owners will also have the opportunity to sell their products on R.Riveter’s Marketplace. Application details will be posted on www.rriveter.com soon.
In the meantime, enjoy shopping The R.Riveter Marketplace, a curated collection of American Made and mission-driven makers!

Support Tags For A Cause
Every R. Riveter handbag comes accessorized with a support tag that serves as a symbol of patronage. The tags are hand-dyed yellow, by Military Spouse Riveters, in support of our military service members and their families.
As a symbol of our support, we began crafting additional hand-made support tags for the following causes.
After seeing the devastation Texas endured after Hurricane Harvey, we crafted a new support tag, hand-dyed RED, to show our solidarity for hurricane victims in Texas.
100% of profits from every Texas Support Tag sold went to the American Red Cross to support people affected by Hurricane Harvey.
As a symbol of support and strength for Breast Cancer survivors, patients and their family and friends, we hand-crafted a new support tag, hand-dyed PINK.
