The Cypress tote is a limited-edition leather tote bag by KMM & Co. This tote is constructed of full-grain leather that's made in America. It features a gorgeous, soft texture and moderate pull-up.

With a vibrant color that will match just about everything in your wardrobe, Cypress is a slouchy leather tote. (It feels very similar to our signature Kodiak leathers!) This leather will show scratches and wear, and occasional range marks, finish aberrations, and other imperfections are a natural part of this full-grain leather.

Your Cypress tote will acquire a unique patina and show where it's been. Due to the unique nature of each hide and dye batch, your bag may be a slightly different color than the one pictured. Every KMM & Co. tote is made in America, right in our Atlanta studio.

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, and can take up to three weeks 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)

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!

Very thick and heavy

Received my brown cypress with custom dark brown handles. It’s super thick , squishy and a bit heavy. It has some natural stretch marks and highs & lows. Very pretty and high quality. Customer service also superb. Owner personally emailed me to confirm my order.

Dream Bag

I actually stumbled across KMM&CO on fb after looking at another similar, well-known leather goods company. The KMM bag featured was the gorgeous Cypress Valentine bundle. It was exactly what I had been looking for, literally the bag of my dreams. I had to have it, and sent it to my husband to show him what he was getting me for Valentine's Day. It shipped out exactly 3 wks later and arrived quickly, I'm in Fl. It is EVERYTHING! Seriously y'all, I could not have hand-picked a more perfect bag. Rich color, buttery soft full-grain leather, amazing quality and weight, the smell, handcrafted in the US, I could go on and on. Even the accessories were equally amazing. I have not carried another bag since, and designer bags are my thing; Dooney, Coach, Brighton, Michael Kors, I have them all. None compare. I've already ordered another tote and more accessories, and have my next 3 purchases planned. Amazing company and customer service. Could not recommend any more.

Cypress is absolute perfection!

My cypress tote is stunning and full of character. You cannot beat the feeling of this leather! The only downside with this order was that I did not receive the correct tag for my bag, but customer service is already working to fix that!
