Our Story


Kyle Martin founded KMM & Co. to design and craft timeless leather goods that get better with use and age. While working at a Ralph Lauren store in college, Kyle fell in love with classic design. He went on to study accessory design at the Savannah College of Art and Design, where he stubbornly ignored sewing machines and laser cutters in favor of crafting every piece by hand. Every KMM piece is cut and sewn by hand, and many are inspired by classic accessories made before fashion was disposable. The flap wallet closure is based on a vintage camera case, and the patina and utility of vintage USPS mailbags inspired the postbag. Kyle’s dream is for KMM & Co. to evolve into a store and working studio that’s a destination for people who appreciate classic design and well-crafted items.
