        Inspiration Behind the Name

        The Whittle is inspired by Mrs. Reba Whittle, a strong, compassionate, and courageous woman who was an American military female prisoner of war in European theater during World War II. Upon graduating from nursing school, Whittle enlisted into the Army Nurse Corps and entered the military as a flight nurse. During the war, the C-47 medical evacuation plane she was on was shot down over enemy territory while traveling to France to retrieve injured soldiers. Whittle was separated from her crew and transferred to a prison camp hospital, where she helped provide aid to prisoners.

        After four months of captivity, Whittle was released in January of 1945. Later that year, she was awarded the Purple Heart for injuries sustained during the crash, she was promoted to the rank of first lieutenant and she also received the Air Medal. Although Whittle was not officially recognized as a POW for some time, the government designated her as a POW two years after her death in 1983. 

        The Whittle handbag represents an incredible woman who was brave, confident, and resilient. Wearing the Whittle should inspire strength in all who carry it.
