R. Riveter – Handbags made in USA – Kickstarter

R. Riveter | American Handmade Challenge by Cameron Cruse + Lisa Bradley — Kickstarter. This is a new Kickstarter (crowdsourcing) project that, I find, is very worthwhile. It is called R. Riveter, after Rosie the Riveter, the iconic female riveter during World War II whose slogan was ” We Can Do It!” R. Riveter is a small company of military spouses who make handbags out of used military materials.

R. Riveter’s mission is unique – it is to employ military spouses, because if you didn’t already know this, the military moves families around all the time, the average stay at one location is 2 and a half years which makes sustainable employment very difficult. Because of this, the company is sort of movable and very flexible with its hours as the spouses often have to attend to their own children at the same time. See the above link and the video for more on this story.

At this time, R. Riveter has raised over $20,000 towards its goal of $35,000. The deadline is October 17, 2014. So, contribute and spread the word.
