Decisions, Decisions! Comparing Crossbody Bags & Totes

Looking for a classic leather bag? You've come to the right place! We make a range of handcrafted bags – but if you don't know exactly what you're looking for, it can be a challenge to figure out which one is right for you!

Now that the fall collection is underway, there are suddenly new KMM & Co. silhouettes to choose among! Here's how the new Crossbody Bag compares to the rest of our collection. 

Leather tote bag, mini tote, and crossbody bag

We offer three bags with crossbody straps

If you like your bags to have crossbody straps, we have lots of options for you! The new Crossbody Bag and the Mini Tote come standard with a detachable, adjustable crossbody strap. (The strap adjusts between 44 inches and 51 inches so that you can customize the fit!) The same crossbody strap is also available as an optional customization for our classic Leather Tote Bags. So you can choose among three bags that can be carried crossbody: the Crossbody Bag, the Mini Tote, and the Tote Bag with the optional crossbody strap.

The new Crossbody Bag is our smallest design

We designed the Crossbody Bag for people who want to travel light. It's the smallest of all of our handcrafted leather bags. (Smaller than both the tote and the mini tote!) Here's how the measurements compare:

  • Crossbody Bag: 14 inches wide, 9 inches tall, 3 inches deep
  • Mini Tote: 10 inches tall, 12 inches wide, 4 inches deep
  • Tote Bag: 13 inches tall, 14 inches wide, 6 inches deep

Leather tote bags can close with a snap

The Crossbody Bag is our first handbag to feature a zip top. (Though we do make a range of classic zip pouches that work well as clutches and as organization inside a tote!) The other bags in our collection can close with a snap. Mini totes come standard with a snap closure, and you can add a snap closure as a customization to any of our classic leather tote bags. 

If you're looking for something streamlined and hands-free, we recommend the Crossbody Bag. If you like the option of carrying a bag with top handles or on your shoulder, you might consider the Mini Tote. And if you need a bag with lots of space, you can't go wrong with the classic Leather Tote Bag.
