The Crazy Horse tote is a true KMM & Co. classic made of beautiful oil-tanned leather. It's our heaviest and most structured tote ‚ÄĒ i.e., it‚Äôs our stiffest bag ‚ÄĒ and will hold its shape even when it's empty. (It‚Äôs not the tote for you if you‚Äôre looking for a soft or slouchy bag!) This tote's most beloved quality is its dramatic pull-up, which gives the leather its high-contrast look.¬†

We've updated the Crazy Horse tote with the same belting-weight handles that you'll find on other KMM & Co. totes. In addition to its high-contrast coloring, Crazy Horse totes often exhibit signature imperfections like range marks, and the leather will show wear and scratches. Due to the unique nature of each hide and dye batch, your bag may be a slightly different color than the one pictured. 

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 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 to other locations, too! Just let us know what you have in mind!

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 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 41.5 inches and 56.5 inches
  • A¬†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 if you have any questions!

CRAZY over my Crazy Horse Tote!

I am not one to spend this amount of money on a purse/tote because I can be hard on them and I buy one and then I don't like it. I have been looking at these totes for a few months now and finally decided to purchase. I have to say now that I have the tote in hand, KMM & Co. makes an excellent product. Thick leather and great craftsmanship. My Crazy Horse Tote is just beautiful - very pleased!


Super Amazing!!!!

Timeless Tote

Just received my tote today and I am so in love! Needed a new bag for work but I think I will be taking this everywhere with me. The neutral colors and structure of this bag make it a minimalist’s dream. The quality is amazing, I feel like I will have this forever and it will only look better as it ages. This bag is more like a work of art.


Just as pictured

I was worried the bag wouldn't be as gorgeous as in the pictures, but I was not disappointed! I love structured bags that stand up and don't slouch, and this bag does just that. I wish it had more pockets inside but that's the only possible gripe I can come up with. I can tell this bag will last a long time and only get more beautiful as it wears.
