About The Rose
Size and Fit
The ultimate everywhere option, The Rose converts from tote to backpack to balance life’s work and leisure moments. Made from lightweight water-resistant nylon, The Rose features a durable, wipe-clean exterior and removable straps that adjust for maximum comfort. The interior is roomy enough to store all the tools you need to change the world, with interior patch pockets and a key strap. The front woven panel reminds us of how interconnected we are as a community and that our actions can positively impact others, with the 4 qualities of gravitas (strength, kindness, resilience, fearlessness) making up the center diamond.
Proudly made in New York City’s Garment District, each backpack provides a NYC seamstress with a half day of work. 100% of the cost to produce this bag goes directly to our community, touching 58 people’s lives: fabric cutters and seamstresses (32%), fabric and trim stores (30%), patternmakers and designers (20%), warehouse and office staff (18%).
“So we must stand together to resist, for we will get what we can take – just that and no more.” - Rose Schneiderman, who fought for better workplace conditions for NYC women following the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire of 1911
