Black, brown, and tan are tried-and-true neutrals -- but so is grey! The Storm Grey bag is a structured tote made of leather that will hold its shape, but still feels soft to the touch. It features a pronounced grain, dramatic pull-up, and a light sheen. Paired with belting-weight tan handles, it's the perfect neutral color that will match just about everything in your wardrobe.
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.
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!
The quality of this bag far exceeds anything I've seen in retail stores. Price point is fair for the craftsmanship and level of detail. At 5'8", I chose the 9" straps. Without a jacket, this length fits comfortably on my arm. However, I find it difficult to fit over a winter coat. The straps have relaxed over the past few weeks that I've had the bag, so I am able to wear it over a leather jacket as well. Color is beautiful! The storm grey is versatile and matches everything in my (mostly dark neutral) closet. I love that the bag is structured and stands on its own, wleven while empty. I also love that the leather is a bit more resistant to scratches than the kodiak leathers, as I tend to not baby my bags. Distressing makes the bag look seasoned, but not tired. Would highly recommend.
Perfect Everyday Bag
For me this tote is preferable to the kodiak (I have both) because of the structure of the tote. It does not slouch at all, stands up on its own yet is soft and beautiful leather. I opted for a 9 inch strap drop which is perfect for me at 5 foot 4 inches and leaves room for when I wear jackets. Smells great and the quality is second to none...I've tried them all! Go get one!

Everything about it is just perfect and absolutely beautiful! It surpassed my highest expectations. I opted for the 9” drop handles, crossbody strap and a snap for closure. So happy I followed in my sisters footsteps and purchased this quality KMM & Co. tote!
I just adore my bag! The leather quality is amazing, it feels great to carry and honestly....I don’t know why I waited so long to buy! Everything from opening the box and how lovely it was presented to the little smile I get when I pick it up is just wonderful! Thank you for an amazing artisan crafted item! I’ll be back for more colors!
