The Tan Kodiak tote is our softest and slouchiest bag, with a luxurious pebbled texture and beautiful pull-up. It's a KMM & Co. bestseller for a reason! The color of the tan kodiak leather varies significantly between dye lots -- check out the GIF above to see a representative range of tan kodiak totes! 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. The Tan Kodiak tote will show scratches and wear, and acquire a patina unique to the way you use your bag.

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 to other locations, too! Just let us know what you have in mind!

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!

Incredible quality

Ok. I almost never leave reviews. But I received my bag today and it is absolutely perfect. And much prettier than I expected. The color is beautiful. And it smells amazing! I’ve owned tons of Coach, Gucci, Dooney, and even a Louis V. This bag shames them all. I’m done buying those others. This I will carry for a lifetime. Customer service was excellent as well. Thank you KMM! Nice work!

The softest bag in America!!!

I absolutely love my bag! I could not wait to carry it. I bought it as a birthday gift to myself and it is so worth it. It goes with all of my clothes and shoes because of the classic style. I added a multi-color boho tassel to the leather tag with my initials to add some personal flare. I am using my own LV wallet and it is perfect! I am so happy!
