The Atlantic Blue tote is back! We've reordered this iconic color from the tannery, and both totes and mini totes are now available for preorder. Atlantic Blue makes a soft and slouchy bag, with a smooth grain and beautiful pull-up. The blue color is visible on both sides of the leather, so the suede interior is also blue! This leather is lightweight and comfortable to carry, perfect if you want a bag that won't weight you down. This tote features handles made of belting-weight leather.

Your Atlantic Blue tote will show scratches and wear, like all full grain leather, and will acquire a patina unique to the way you use your bag. Due to the unique nature of each hide, 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 this leather.

It takes a lot of steps to make a leather tote by hand. Each tote gets its start on the cutting table, where we inspect every side of leather and choose the perfect piece – with lots of natural character – for your tote. There's nowhere to hide imperfections, so we cut carefully.

Next, we cut the tote's handles out of belting-weight leather, which will break in with use. We sew the side seams of the bag on an industrial machine, backstitching carefully for extra reinforcement. (We always avoid a seam along the bottom of the tote for structural integrity.) Then, we add the interior pocket, handles, and interior strap with copper rivets, hand-set to withstand decades of use. 

Your 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 tote for you. But if you want a tote that looks and feels (and is!) heirloom-quality, and will acquire a patina unique to you, this may be the one. 

Your leather tote bag is made by hand and made to order. Please note that preorder bags may take a little longer than the standard three-week window to ship. It's worth the wait, we promise! (See our shipping page for more details.) Everything is made in and ships from our studio in Atlanta. All orders over $50 ship free within the United States. We can ship to other locations, including APO and FPO addresses, too.

If you aren't happy with your order, you can return it for free within 30 days of receipt. We can't accept returns of items that are customized for you (but totes ordered with longer-than-standard handles but no other modifications are now eligible for return or exchange!) See our full return policy

We want your tote to be perfect for you, so we offer a variety of ways to customize it! We can emboss the leather tag with up to 27 characters: letters, numbers, or a few emojis. (Just type what you'd like in the monogram field in your cart!)

Other custom options include:

  • Longer handles, which we'll custom-cut just for you
  • A detachable crossbody strap, which has brass hardware and adjusts between 44 inches and 51 inches
  • A brass snap closure (the same brass snap closure on the mini totes)
  • A matching gift set: a card envelope, key clip, and cord taco 
  • A leather tassel that matches the color of your tote

Please note that a snap closure or a crossbody strap are a custom order and make your tote final-sale. Totes ordered with longer-than-standard handles but no other modifications are eligible for return or exchange.

If you add a crossbody strap or snap closure, choose your drop length carefully, as we are unable to make alterations to final-sale items. (See our alterations policy.) Reach out to if you have any questions!

Beautiful color, holds everything for a long day and am so glad I ordered it with the 10 inch straps. So glad I was able to get this “blue” before it became unavailable. LOVE IT!!!
