We’re joining forces with Jeep once again.
As Rosie the Riveter rose to prominence as a symbol of female empowerment during the 1940s, the original Jeep stepped into the spotlight as an example of American ingenuity and ruggedness. Now, 80 years and two previous collaborations later, R.Riveter is teaming up with Jeep once more for a new line of limited-edition bags and accessories.
Each of our collaborations with the iconic Jeep brand has been designed especially for women who know they must experience adventures to find out where they truly belong. And our new collection includes a stamped reminder of that sentiment. Each bag, tote, or pouch includes this iconic quote by author Sue Fitzmaurice:
The Adeline pouch set is perfect for storing make-up, tech accessories, and other small items while on the go. Stick this duo in your tote, backpack, or travel bag, and keep everything you need organized and easily accessible. You’ll never have to dig through your purse to find your headphones again.
This set includes two pouches – one small pouch with a gold clip and one large pouch with a black wristlet. You can keep them together with the clips or separate them and carry the large pouch as a clutch. This duo is versatile and easy to clean.
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
The Adeline honors Adeline Van Buren, a trailblazer in travel in the United States. Born in 1889, Adeline and her sister Augusta set out on a cross-country motorcycle journey to prove a point. They rode 5500 miles in 60 days, from Brooklyn to Los Angeles and down into Mexico, in protest of not being allowed to join the military dispatch service during World War I.
The sisters dedicated their motorcycle journey to proving that women were capable of doing the job as well as a man. While considered icons today, Adeline and Augusta were arrested several times during their journey for wearing “men’s clothes” and were often criticized for their feat. The Adeline pouch set celebrates their dedication to advancing women’s rights.
