    KMM & Co.'s mini tote is perfectly sized for days when you want to travel light. And it's surprisingly roomy for a small tote: Your favorite clutch wallet or envelope clutch will fit inside, along with your phone, your keys, and anything else you need to carry with you!

    Russet is a limited-edition leather with a smooth grain, a soft finish, and a little bit of pull-up. Like every color we offer, Russet is a full-grain leather, and it will acquire a beautiful patina with wear. We also used a unique handle leather for this bag: It will darken in the sun, like our Vegetable Tanned tote and it handles.

    Each mini tote features handles (meant for carrying the tote by hand, not on your shoulder) and a detachable shoulder or crossbody strap made of coordinating belting-weight leather. This style comes standard with a brass snap closure. Inside each mini tote, you'll find an interior pocket on one side, and a strap for your sunglasses and keys on the other. Imperfections such as variations in color, range marks, small scratches, insect bites, and folds in the leather are normal for full grain leathers. 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, whether that tote is a standard or mini size! We always start with a hide of beautiful, full-grain leather. Our team inspects every hide to choose the perfect one to use for the body of your bag. Next, we cut the handles and crossbody strap out of 10-ounce belting leather, which will break in beautifully (and stand up to years and years of use). We sew the side seams of the tote on an industrial machine.

    Then, we hand-set the handles, pocket, and interior strap with a total of 12 copper rivets. Finally, we add a solid brass snap closure, and an adjustable (and detachable) crossbody strap fitted with solid brass hardware. You can take the crossbody strap on and off of your mini tote, and the trigger snaps at the end of the strap clip onto brass grommets hidden inside the tote. (When the crossbody strap isn't on the bag, you can't even tell it was there!)

    Every KMM & Co. leather tote bag will become what you make it. If you want a leather tote 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 will acquire a patina unique to you and the way you use it, this may be the one.
