The Distressed Clay tote is a limited-edition leather tote bag that comes as a special bundle deal just for our July 4 sale! This tote is constructed of full-grain leather that's made in America. The bundle includes a tote, an exclusive matching clutch, and a leather tag.

This leather makes a structured tote that will hold its shape even when empty. True to its name, this leather has a distressed finish and lots of character. Scratches, range marks, finish aberrations, and other imperfections are very common on this leather. The surface of the leather is matte with a velvety feel and little to no pull-up. 

Your Distressed Clay leather tote will acquire a unique patina and show where it's been. Due to the unique nature of each hide and dye batch and variations across each side of leather, your bag may be a slightly different color than the one pictured. Every KMM & Co. tote is made in America, right in our Atlanta studio. 

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!

The Distressed Clay tote bundle includes a tote, an exclusive leather clutch, and a leather tag. 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 leather of your tote
