About our Earthly Twilight Collection
The Earthly Twilight Collection explores the stages of the sun and what its position can make us feel. Twilight is the moment when the sun is resting just below the horizon before it rises or after it has set. It leaves us with a soft glow and powdery hues. This quiet moment brings about optimism for the day that will come or the resetting and leaving behind the worries of a day that has passed.
It is when we can hear the smallest of creatures rejoicing to one another and sets the tone for the day that will follow.
Inspiration behind the name
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.
