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 in North Carolina to be assembled into a one-of-a-kind product.
While we love a good handbag, there's just something so functional and freeing about a wristlet. Newsprint gets its name from the bold contrast of ink on paper - reminding us of the stories we read, write and share. The “just ever so slightly off-white” grey with the black topstitch is a nod to the powerful sophistication of the classic newspaper.

In the heat of WWII, 20-year-old Naomi Parker Fraley went to work at the Naval Air Station in Alameda, CA. She was assigned to a machine shop, where her duties included drilling, patching airplane wings, and riveting. It was in this shop where a newspaper photographer captured a photo of Fraley working, hair tied up in a telltale polkadot headscarf. This photo was likely the inspiration of an American wartime propaganda poster produced by J. Howard Miller for an electric company, intended to be an inspirational image to boost worker morale. The poster was never meant for public display, and had been all but forgotten during WWII. In the early 1980's, a copy resurfaced and "Rosie the Riveter" became a symbol of female strength and empowerment.
The Naomi Zipper Clutch will forever remind women everywhere that we too, can do it.
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.
