The Oxblood tote is a KMM & Co. classic! We've offered leather totes in this gorgeous color 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.

If you aren't happy with your order, you can return it for free within 30 days of receipt. However, we can't accept returns of items that are customized for you, such as tote bags ordered with longer-than-standard handles, a crossbody strap, or any other additions or modifications. 

Check out our returns policy for more details, or email us at hello@kmmco.com if you have questions! 

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!) Other options include:

  • Longer handles, which we'll custom-cut just for you
  • A detachable crossbody strap, which features brass hardware and is adjustable between the lengths of 44 inches and 51 inches
  • A brass snap closure (exactly like the the brass snap closure on our mini totes)
  • The addition of a gift set, which includes a matching card envelope, key clip, and cord taco made from the same leather as your tote
  • A leather tassel that matches the color of your tote

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!

Loved it at first sight. The smell of the leather, the feel and the craftmenship

Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better...

…I bought my 2nd KMM&Co bag, the Oxblood tote. I cannot even describe how beautiful the leather is. The color is deep and rich and glossy. The bag isn’t slouchy and holds it’s shape, but it’s still soft and pliable. Pictures do not do it justice. Love that you can customize the strap length. Again, the craftsmanship, quality and customer service is unmatched! Already planning to purchase a third tote. These may last forever, but you really cannot own just one. Love KMM&Co!

Beautifully unique and holds everything

This bag is large, beautiful, and great for those of us who carry a lot day to day for personal and business use. I was sent images of the brands available, and communication was excellent! 2 improvements I’d recommend: - The snap closure would look nicer in copper to match the handle rivets. The shiny brass color doesn’t match well. - 4 metal “feet” on the bottom of the bag would add an extra bit of luxury.

Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts! Unfortunately we’re not able to use (or even buy) copper snaps. Copper is a very soft metal, and a copper snap would deform over time. And we’ve actually tried adding feet — they look great but the totes are a lot more stable without them.
