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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions!
Just the right size. Goes with everything. Comfortable to carry.
I was worried that this bag might be bigger than I needed because as you all know the bigger the bag the more stuff you carry. It is the perfect size and I couldn’t be happier. It is so easy to find what your looking for in an instant and it seems more organized than my last purse that had numerous zipper compartments. The quality of this bag is amazing and it’s made right here in the good old USA. That is a win win in my book!!
I am so happy with my new bag! The leather quality reminds me of the purse my dad bought me 50 years ago. I carried it forever. So happy is a wonderful bag and a wonderful memory.
The Bag I’ve Always Wanted
I received my tote recently and I can honestly say, I was thrilled with the quality and beauty of the bag! It is everything I hoped it would be and more. I love it. I am proud to carry it. I also love the functionality of the tote. It is large enough for all my essentials without being bulky. And it smells so nice. All in all, I am more than satisfied with my KMM and Co. tote!
I love this bag! It’s a great size. The leather is so soft. The handles stay on your shoulder. I highly recommend
