The Oxblood tote is a KMM & Co. classic, a color that we've offered on and off throughout the years (as often as supply allows). This limited-edition tote is made of full-grain leather that has lots of gorgeous pull-up. It's also structured enough that the bag will hold its shape and stand up on its own.

Our Oxblood leather has a slight sheen, and will scratch and distress with use. Occasional range marks and other small imperfections are a natural part of this full-grain leather. Due to the unique nature of each hide and dye batch, your bag may be a slightly different color than the one pictured. 

It takes a lot of steps to make a leather tote by hand -- and just as many to break it in and make it yours. Made with vintage techniques for a modern world, your KMM & Co. leather tote bag will show where it’s been with wear and patina -- and every time you scratch it or fold it or get caught in the rain with it, you make it more unique.

Creating a tote bag involves tools such as needle and thread, blades and flame, even stamps and presses. Each tote bag gets its start on the cutting table, where we inspect every cowhide and choose the right piece of leather for your tote. We cut each tote out of a single piece of leather. There’s nowhere to hide imperfections, so we cut carefully.

Next, we make the handles out of 10-ounce belting leather, which will break in and soften with use. We sew the side seams of the bag on an industrial machine. Finally, we hand-set the tote’s handle, pocket, and interior strap with 16 copper rivets.

Every KMM & Co. leather tote bag will become what you make it. If you want a bag that will look exactly the same after a year of heavy use, then this isn’t the bag for you. But if you want a tote that looks and feels like real leather, and will acquire a patina unique to you and the way you use it, this may be the one. 

KMM & Co.'s leather tote bags are made by hand and made to order, and they can take up to three weeks to ship. Need yours faster? Email hello@kmmco.com and we'll see what we can do! Check out our shipping page for more information on typical processing times.

We want your tote to be perfect for you, so we offer a variety of ways to customize your bag! We can emboss the leather tag that's included with your tote with up to 27 characters, including letters, numbers, and even a few emojis.  (Just type what you'd like in the monogram field when you add a tote to your cart!)

You can choose to add longer handles or a crossbody strap, which will be custom-cut for you. You can upgrade your tote to a gift set, which includes a matching card envelope, key clip, and cord taco. Or you can keep things simple and order your tote exactly as-is -- it's up to you!

Please note that longer-than-standard handles, a crossbody strap, and other modifications are a custom order and make your tote final-sale and ineligible for return or exchange. Select your drop length carefully, as we are unable to make alterations to final-sale items, as per our alterations policy. Reach out to hello@kmmco.com if you have any questions!

Gorgeous bag!

I've had my bag about a month now. The color is beautiful- deep and eye catching. I got the longer shoulder straps and am pleased with that choice. I chose a structured bag on purpose and this one definately stand up by itself, both empty and full. I was worried that it would not be big enough, but it holds plenty. I can fit my laptop (and its not super slim), files, a charging cord, a full size wallet and a small travel pouch comfortably. My only complaint is the straps...I am watching them carefully. They seem to be made of a different grade of leather and are shedding on my clothes, plus are showing a great deal of cracking and fraying. Maybe this is just the leather breaking in?

Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts! The handles are made of belting-weight leather so that they can stand up to years of use. As the leather breaks in, there can be some shedding at the edges of the straps. You can accelerate the process by trimming off any loose pieces along the edges of the straps with a pair of scissors. (After you trim it, shedding typically won’t be a problem again!) If you need help or have any questions, we’re always available at hello@kmmco.com. ❤️

Amazing colours

I don’t have this colour yet but it’s on my list! I have other Kmm totes and am completely in love with them. The options to customize handles and messages are so appreciated. The turnaround time is quick with good communications. Definitely recommend!!

Best tote evva!

From the moment I opened the meticulously packed tote (wrapped in wax paper) and smelled the wonderful leather scent, I knew I acquired a quality product. The leather is super thick and attached with rivets. What got me though was the BEAUTIFUL oxblood red color. It’s so intense! I ordered the 10” strap because I am 5’11” and like to wear it on my shoulder. I’m soooo happy and will enjoy this tote for years to come!

Oxblood is THE BEST

I absolutely love this color! The size is a bit large for an every day purse but I do love it. The color is amazing and the leather is thick and strong. I recommend getting the longer handles for easier toting around on the shoulder. I ordered a second bag just because this color is so pretty. I needed a back up!

Amazing!

I've owned my oxblood tote for about 2.5 years. I used it tons for fall and winter mostly. Just pulled it out of the closet to use now instead of waiting October and am reminded of how sturdy and solid it is. KMM's craftsmanship is impressive. I love that it stands up on its own even when it's barely half full. This leather is gorgeous and has gained great character over the past couple of years. If you're on the fence, you should jump and get one. You won't regret it!
