The Ida Mini envelope card holder keeps all your cards and cash organized without the bulk of an oversized wallet. Perfect for use with a smaller handbag or clutch, the Ida Mini fits ID cards, credit cards, and business cards. It’s also a useful option for networking and work events – keep all the business cards you collect in one place.
Made of supple leather, the Ida Mini card holder comes in black, brown, and tan leather. We’ve got the perfect shade no matter your purse or preference. This versatile and useful accessory snaps closed with a brass fastener and features a gold-stamped R.Riveter logo on the flap for a touch of elegance.
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 Ida Mini envelope card holder is named after Ida Cook, a romance novelist who helped smuggle Jewish people out of Germany during World War II. Born in 1904 in England, Ida Cook wrote and published 112 romance novels during her lifetime.
Ida and her sister, Mary Louise Cook, used the funds from her writing to help 29 people escape Germany. Both opera buffs, the pair flew to Germany repeatedly under the pretext of attending the opera, where they then arranged for safe passage for the refugees. Some suspect that the sisters were also spies for the British government, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
We’re honoring Ida Cook for her bravery and her commitment to helping those in need.
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.
