Inspiration Behind the Name The Otto Handbag by R.Riveter is a tribute to the remarkable Elinor Otto, a pioneering woman who left an indelible mark on history. Elinor Otto, known fondly as the "Last Rosie the Riveter," exemplifies resilience, determination, and the spirit of empowerment. Born in 1919, Elinor was part of the iconic generation of women who stepped into the workforce during World War II, breaking barriers by joining the skilled workforce of riveters. She was an integral part of the homefront effort, contributing to the production of America's iconic warplanes, including the B-17 and the B-29 bombers. Her dedication and craftsmanship helped pave the way for generations of women in traditionally male-dominated industries. The Otto Handbag symbolizes Elinor's unwavering strength and embodies her legacy of tenacity and empowerment. Each stitch and detail in this bag reflects her commitment to quality and excellence. Elinor Otto's story is a testament to the resilience of women, their ability to adapt, and their unwavering strength in the face of challenges. Carrying the name of Elinor Otto, the Otto Handbag stands not only as a testament to her remarkable legacy but also as an inspiration for modern women, embodying the spirit of determination, perseverance, and the empowerment of breaking barriers.
Denim Care and Indigo Disclaimer: Due to the natural characteristics of this fabric, the coloring may rub off on light colored fabrics and upholstery (similar to a new pair of denim jeans). Care should be taken when wearing with light colored clothing. General wear and use will fade the color and gain its unique appearance. Because of the unique properties of denim, please use a specialist for professional cleaning.
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. Please click here to read about how to care for your veg tanned leather.
