So much time and thought goes into how each uniform is deconstructed and then reconstructed it into a truly unique handbag. The many characteristics and different aspects of every uniform make this no ordinary purse; each one is truly one-of-a-kind!
Due to the individual nature of these bags, you can expect to find seams, creases, pockets and possibly flaps on your bag. These distinctive qualities are what make each Limited Edition handbag extraordinary and truly one of a kind!

The Otto was named after one of the original Rosie the Riveter’s, Mrs. Elinor Otto. When WWII began and men were pulled away from their jobs to serve their country, Mrs. Otto was one of the nearly 6 million women who went to work to keep the country moving forward. She worked until 2014 when she retired from Boeing, where she was responsible for working on every single C-17 plane that went through the plant.
The Otto is a special handbag. Not only does it pay homage to an incredible woman who helped pave the way for 21st century working women, it also empowers military spouses today. Each part and piece of the Otto is handcrafted by military spouses across the country, allowing them to earn flexible, mobile income in a transient life with their soldier.
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.

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.
Please note: Due to the nature of the Limited-Edition materials. We are unable to offer warranty repairs on the upcycled military materials portion of the handbag.
