CHALLENGING THE STATUS QUO
The women knew they had to do something. How could they solve the employment issue that plagued thousands of military spouses?
"We were starting to see that if we wanted a career in this transient military life, we'd have to create it for ourselves. Not only did we need flexible income, but we needed mobile income to travel along with us as we relocate with our military members. And that's when R.Riveter was born."
After charging two thousand dollars each to their credit cards, Lisa and Cameron purchased a commercial sewing machine and a small supply of leather and canvas. At first, it was a two-woman operation, but as demand grew, so did the team.
AND SO R.RIVETER BEGAN.
The name was inspired by World War II cultural icon Rosie the Riveter who symbolizes the contribution women made to the workforce that helped win the war.
"Rosie the Riveter embodies everything that we stand for. Our mission is a bit more modern, but her spirit and 'we can do it' attitude still apply."
FROM TWO WOMEN IN A GARAGE ATTIC
to a nationwide network of Riveters, our company embodies the time-tested mantra of success through hard work while providing travel hardened military spouses the opportunity to achieve and elevate.
With each Riveter doing their part to assemble the product, the mission is accomplished through the hands of each worker.
The team spirit and community within R.Riveter drives individual and collective success, in the shop or at home.
