Introducing Market Totes: The Large Tote Bags You've Been Waiting For!

Introducing Market Totes: The Large Tote Bags You've Been Waiting For!

New season, new designs! The Spring 2021 collection is starting to launch, and the item that's made the biggest splash so far is KMM & Co.'s new market tote. 

Here's what you need to know about this brand-new design, including how it compares to our bestselling leather tote bags.

The Market Tote is for you if you like LARGE tote bags!

The market tote is significantly larger than our classic tote bags. One of our classic totes is 14 inches wide and 13 inches tall, with a 6-inch gusset. By contrast, the market tote is 20.5 inches wide at the top of the tote, 13 inches wide at the bottom of the tote, and 12.5 inches tall, with a 7.5-inch gusset.

The market tote has significantly more space than a standard tote. It can hold files, your laptop, or even your essentials for a weekend getaway. And unlike our classic totes, the market tote is wider than it is tall – perfect for those who prefer an East-West orientation to make the most of the space in a tote bag this large.

An exterior pocket keeps your essentials handy

When we designed the market tote, we added our most-requested feature: an exterior pocket. The outside pocket on this bag measures 11 inches wide and 7.75 inches tall. That means plenty of space for whichever items you need to keep close at hand. (That might be your phone, it might be your snacks; we're not going to judge!)

In addition to the exterior pocket, the market tote features an interior pocket and an interior strap for your sunglasses, and a d-ring for your keys, as well. We're big believers in having a place for everything – and keeping everything in its place – when you pack your tote each morning.

You can choose the handle length that works best for you

As with our classic leather tote bags, you can choose among a range of different handle lengths when you order a market tote. The standard drop length is the same as the crowd-favorite standard handles on our classic totes. Or, you can upgrade to longer handles with a 9-inch or 10-inch drop length.

We measure drop length from the top of the handle to the top edge of the tote, with a ruler or tape measure held perpendicular to that top edge. You can measure the handles of a bag that you already own to figure out which length would be most comfortable. Or you can just email us at We'd be happy to help!

The Market Tote is part of KMM & Co.'s Spring 2021 Collection, and is available in a range of our permanent-collection colors. Visit the Market Tote collection to see all 12 colors – and let us know which one is your favorite!
