The Purple Kodiak tote is a soft and slouchy bag, with a luxurious pebbled texture and beautiful pull-up. It's a purple version of our Tan Kodiak tote, which is by far and away our bestselling leather tote bag. Your Purple Kodiak tote will show scratches and wear, and acquire a patina unique to the way you use your bag.

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.

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! Check out our shipping page for more information on typical processing times. All orders ship free within the continental United States. We can ship internationally, too!

If you aren't happy with your order, you can return it for free within 30 days of receipt. However, we can't accept returns of items that are customized for you, such as tote bags ordered with longer-than-standard handles, a crossbody strap, or any other additions or modifications. Check out our returns policy for more details, or email us at hello@kmmco.com if you have questions! 

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 hello@kmmco.com if you have any questions!

The most AMAZING bag EVER!

I received the purple Kodiak tote as a birthday gift from my husband. I am a self proclaimed bag lady and am always searching for the perfect bag but have recently gotten tired of brand names, fashion fads, and the poor quality often associated with many known outlet brand designers. When I unwrapped this bag I was elated!!!! It is chic, sturdy, timeless, and beautifully made with a craftsmanship that it is almost absolete these days. This is my day to day bag, my work bag, and my stylish mama bag all in one! It is by far the most beautiful bag I have ever owned and I can not wait to grow my KMM & CO collection! Buy this! I promise you you will not be disappointed!

Absolutely amazing!

I have been eyeing these bags for literal MONTHS, especially the Kodiak bags. The second I saw that these new colors were available, I had to jump on it! I have to say, the quality of this leather is second to none. I’ve had leather bags in the past but nothing as soft as this! And the color is a beautiful, deep wine, just as pictured. It’s even more beautiful in person. I got the 9” drop for the handles and it’s perfect. I recommend the gift set with this! You’ll have this gorgeous bag, and a place for everything else in matching leather. Hands down, this is the best bag I’ve ever owned and I can’t wait to see it wear in. Best of all, it arrived on my birthday! :) Go get one!
