We sourced this milled vachetta leather from an Italian tannery: one located in the "leather district" of Tuscany. This region of Italy is known for its centuries-old practice of vegetable tanning, the process of tanning leather with natural compounds. This particular leather is vegetable tanned and then drum-dyed for a vibrant, even color and a soft, luxurious feel.
The crossbody bag is the perfect leather handbag for days you want to travel light. Each handcrafted bag offers simple design and classic good looks at their best! This handbag has plenty of space for your essentials, and features a solid brass zipper that will stand up to years of use.
This crossbody bag is made of a full-grain leather that's soft and slouchy, with a grain that's primarily smooth with areas of pebbling. The crossbody bag features the same adjustable (and detachable) crossbody strap that you know and love on our mini totes.
Like every KMM & Co. accessory, your crossbody bag will be handmade and made to order, just for you. Imperfections such as grain variations, range marks, small scratches, and insect bite are normal for full-grain leathers. Due to the unique nature of each hide and dye batch, your bag may be a slightly different shade than the one pictured.
Here at the KMM & Co. studio, we may be known for our leather tote bags and mini totes. We love totes, but we wanted to design a new handbag especially for people who want to travel light and go hands-free. Enter the zip-top crossbody bag!
Each crossbody bag gets its start on the cutting table, where the team hand-selects the perfect side of leather to cut each piece of the bag. There's a front, a back, and a gusset to connect the two.
Next, the solid brass zipper is carefully prepared and set into the bag. It takes a steady hand (and an industrial sewing machine!) to get this step right. Once the zipper is set and tested, the bag gets assembled with strong seams and hand-set copper rivets.
Finally, the adjustable crossbody strap gets cut out of American-made belting-weight leather, then assembled with solid brass trigger snaps and D-rings, and copper rivets. All of the hardware will acquire a patina with age and use, just like the leather!
Every KMM & Co. bag will become what you make it. If you want a leather crossbody 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 handbag that will acquire a patina unique to you and the way you use it, this may be the one.
