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:
Meet Margot. This is your tote. It’s the perfect one arm, over-the-shoulder commuter bag that you can transition straight to poolside when the time comes. Margot's interior is open and generous with space, and the exterior slip pocket keeps your essentials right where you need them.
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
Named after Margaret Hardenbroeck DeVries Philipse (c. 1630-c. 1690).
Margaret Hardenbroeck DeVries Philipse (c. 1630-c. 1690) or as we call her, “Margot”, exemplified strong, independent female authority. She was educated, independent and entrepreneurial in the 17th century, when women were not typically those things.
She fought for women’s rights under Dutch law and eventually migrated to NYC where she continued to dominate as a business owner in the shipping industry and as an advocate for women’s marital rights.
