Did anyone watch when R. Riveter handbags debuted on QVC on September 26th?
I didn't catch all of it but looked like they never did a tour inside any of the bags? Very surprised by that, isn't that a given? Would definitely help with the shopping process lol. They looked really nice, love the concept, but out ot my price range lol.

I saw it.  To me I find the inside of handbags just about all the same.  A big hole with pockets.  They probably focused on the outside with all the silly things (like a dog tag) that spikes the price.  All just a passing fluff.

I purchases a R.Riveter handbag (Hobo) from their website 3 yers ago.  The concept beyind the company seemed to make a lot of sense.

 

The handbag is beautiful, very well made and I continue t use it daily.

Regardless of their mission or who they are, which might resonate with many, but not so much with me, I find their bags lack much in the way of style and are overpriced for what they are. When I buy a handbag it's for the handbag, not for the company behind the handbag and hence the brand is not on my list of 'must haves'...

I purchased the Otto from the RR website because I got 15% off and no tax, free ship, which they offered on QVC. I got the all black. Is it expensive for canvas and leather, yes. But I love it, light weight, love all the pockets, the leather is sumptuous. The inside of the back is a wide black strip on white so everything is easy to see and get to. All the outside colors have this same interior from what I can determine. Each piece of the bag is made by a different riveter and it is wonderful to see that and read each of their stories. It is a great way to support our military spouses, get an American made product and get a great, sturdy, good looking bag. I have used it every day since I got it weeks ago and will co tinur to do so. Best bag I’ve purchased in some time.

I bought one of their bags years ago when they first came out; I loved their background as military spouses, and I loved that the bags are all handmade in the US (still are). Good for them for being a vendor here.

 

Their handbags and accessories are very utilitarian, but excellent quality IMO.

@Sunshine45  I think it was you who mentioned something about these bags in a thread (now deleted) over the weekend. Would you mind saying it again here?  They're going to be a special of some kind?

 

Thanks in advance.

@Sunshine45  Thanks.  I have one of their bags.  I didn't see them when they were on before. While I got a good deal at the website, it wasn't as good as the one offered here. So I'll be watching July 3.
