:Alameda - Women of Industry collection:

The Alameda Collection is a tribute to the women who entered the industrial workforce during World War II. The Collection is named after the Naval Air Station Alameda, which employed many women in aircraft assembly during wartime.  One of the women working at Alameda was Naomi Parker.  A photo of Ms. Parker operating a machine press became the inspiration for J. Howard Miller’s 1943 “We Can Do It!” poster that famously depicted the now iconic “Rosie the Riveter.”

 Each piece in the collection contains components that have been cast directly from the leather of vintage welding gloves and other safety gear. The women of Alameda have long since put down their rivet guns, welding torches, and hammers, but their stories continue to inspire generations of women and girls.
