The Olive Kodiak tote is a soft and slouchy bag, with a luxurious pebbled texture and beautiful pull-up. It's an olive green version of our Tan Kodiak tote, which is by far and away our bestselling leather tote bag. Your Olive Kodiak tote will show scratches and wear, and acquire a patina unique to the way you use your bag.

Due to the unique nature of each hide and dye batch, your bag may be a slightly different color than the one pictured. Imperfections such as variations in color, range marks, small scratches, occasional insect bites, and folds in the leather are natural characteristics of these totes. They all come about either during the life of the cow, or sometimes during the tanning process. 

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. All orders ship free within the continental United States. We can ship internationally, too!

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!

Awesome tote!

The leather is so beautiful and smells amazing. This tote definitely will last a lifetime. I chose olive Kodiak tote and it’s exactly what I thought it would—even better! I also purchased the extra accessories, the tassel, and an extra heart tag. I love that my initials are on it and that I could personalize it.

The Almost Perfect Tote!

Great tote & the quality and craftsmanship are excellent! Well worth the price. The leather is so soft and the color complements any outfit. I'm so glad I got the 9" handle and snap closure. This bag is large enough to carry all my stuff without being too big. What would make it the perfect tote? A small outside pocket like you have on the larger tote bags. :)

Beautiful.

I’m still breaking it in but I am enjoying it so much already. I know top quality leather takes some time to soften snd conform to the user. This is definitely high quality leather and workmanship,

The tote I've been looking for!

I've been searching for a great leather tote for years now. Have tried a lot of brands (everything from LV to Portland) and always found the quality a little lackluster. Saw a friend recommend KMM & Co. on Facebook and am over the moon that I clicked! This is the best tote I've ever had. The size is so practical, and I love how simple and timeless it looks.
