We've Got the Blues! 💙 (All the Blue Totes, That Is)
Feeling blue? It's no secret that blue is many people's favorite color – and it's a favorite for several members of the KMM & Co. staff, too! So really, it's not surprising that we stock several kinds of blue leather here at the KMM & Co. studio.
Want to know how all of our blue leather totes compare? Get all of the details below!
The Classic: Navy Kodiak
Navy Kodiak is the blue leather tote we've been making the longest – it's a KMM & Co. classic at this point! Like all Kodiak leathers, Navy Kodiak is soft and slouchy, with a luxurious pebbled texture and some pull-up. The navy color is deeper on the top side of the leather and a touch brighter on the suede side, which makes for a beautiful and vibrant blue on the interior of a Navy Kodiak bag.
The Crowd Favorite: Atlantic Blue
Atlantic Blue made its debut last year. We LOVE this color, but we were still surprised to see it shoot up the charts to become one a bestseller in 2020! Atlantic Blue is a lightweight leather with a smooth grain. Depending on both the dye lot and the light source, you might see greenish or greyish hues under the blue. Atlantic Blue also has a moderate amount of pull-up for a dimensional color.
The Newcomer: Petrol Blue Bison
Petrol Blue Bison is the latest addition to the blue leather tote lineup at KMM & Co. This limited-edition color will only be available for a short time (don't wait if it's calling your name)! This leather is made of Bison hide, which is known for its prominent grain and rugged durability. Petrol Blue Bison has undertones of green, which combine with the bright blue pull-up for a statement-making color.
The Bright Hue: Aegean Blue
Aegean Blue is the brightest and lightest color in our lineup of blue leather totes. Not quite a pastel and not quite a neon, Aegean Blue is difficult to describe – but a true showstopper. The color reminds us a bit of tropical seas or pristine swimming pools! (Is our wanderlust showing yet?) This leather is lightweight, with moderate pull-up that makes the color dimensional.
The Luxe Edition: Navy
Navy is a recent addition to the KMM & Co. permanent collection. It's the perfect counterpoint to Navy Kodiak: Where Navy Kodiak is slouchy, Navy is structured. Where Navy Kodiak is pebbled, Navy is smooth-grained. And where Navy Kodiak has subtle pull-up, Navy draws you in with high-contrast pull-up. This leather feels luxuriously soft to the touch despite its structure – it's the best of both worlds!
