The Cognac tote is one our favorite limited-edition leather tote bags. It's made of full-grain leather with a gorgeous smooth grain. Our Cognac leather has a light sheen and faint pull-up. It scratches and ages beautifully. This tote is structured enough to stand up on its own, even when it's empty.
Range marks, stretch marks, and other 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.

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 email@example.com if you have any questions!
It’s an amazing purse. I love it. Space for everything. Love the leather Extremely happy
I had very high expectations, and the tote exceeded them. Perfect size (I’m 5”2 and a lot of totes of this type are too big for me), perfect leather, very sturdy, the straps don’t slip off my shoulder, - and everything about this purse shows how much love and care was put into making it. I am very happy with it, and already purchased leather conditioner to take good care of it for years to come.
Couldn’t be happier
I am so happy with my purchase. I LOVE my Cognac Tote! The quality and look is perfect!!!!
