The Atlantic Blue tote is our first limited-edition bag of 2020! It's a soft and slouchy bag, with a smooth grain and beautiful pull-up. The blue color is visible on both sides of the leather, so the suede interior is also blue! This gorgeous full-grain leather makes a tote that's lightweight and comfortable to carry, perfect if you want a bag that won't weight you down. This tote features handles made of belting-weight leather.

Your Atlantic Blue tote will show scratches and wear, and will acquire a patina unique to the way you use your bag. Due to the unique nature of each hide, 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!

Love

Love my tote. I had this one customized with crossbody, the crossbody strap is really long & needs more holes for adjustment. But that doesnt mean I dont love it. Thanks KMM for another fabulous bag.

WOW WOW WOW! This tote stands alone ahead of all others. It's fantastic; the size, straps, the interior pocket & strap is perfect. For me, the color is a bit different than the pic. I was very pleasantly surprised though. It has a bit of a green hue to it, looking turquoise-like. The smell is AMAZING! A great choice for ME. Thank you KMM & Co.

Love my blue tote!

I love the Atlantic Blue color! I own 3 of the Kodiak totes. The leather is so soft and smells great. I chose the 10” drop which gives plenty of room for shoulder wear. I’ve received quite a few compliments on it. KMM & Co makes fabulous leather totes!
