About our Spring 2021 Emerge Collection
Like anything relating to growth, there’s a natural progression during a transition. There comes a point when it’s time to take a leap and to trust that the work you put in will catch you. Our first step—serenity, has brought us to a place where we are centered and at peace with who we are and where we are going. The next step is to emerge. Emerging can mean so many things from adding onto the things in our lives or completely leaving some things behind. If they don’t serve you, why are you still paying them any mind?
Emerge is defined as “moving out of or away from something and coming into view; to become apparent, important, or prominent.”
The Emerge Collection inspires boldness and wakes you from your complacency. Leave the habits that don’t serve you behind. It’s time to emerge from the old you.
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.
