Macchiato leather is:

  • Pebbled, with a large grain
  • Structured, but soft to the touch
  • Uniform in color, a little pull-up and a distressed finish

Macchiato totes come standard with tan handles, or you can choose a custom color with the KMM & Co. Secret Menu.

  • Made in America (in our Atlanta studio!)
  • Interior pocket
  • Interior strap for your keys or sunglasses
  • 100% full-grain leather, unlined

The iconic KMM & Co. tote just got more affordable! This bag is made of a sample leather sent to us by an American tannery. It was never released as a regular color, and only a few totes are available in this limited color. The surface of the leather is matte with a very pebbled texture and a small amount of pull-up. This leather makes a structured tote that will hold its shape even when empty. 

These totes have a distressed finish and lots of character. Scratches, range marks, finish aberrations, scars, and other imperfections are very common on this leather. Your tote will acquire a unique patina and show where it's been. Due to the unique nature of each hide and dye batch and variations across each side of leather, 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. 

While we don't stamp names or initials on our leather totes, we do make a range of leather tags that can be embossed with your name, initials, motto, or favorite short quote.

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. However, we can't accept returns of sale totes or items that are customized for you (though regular-price 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! Custom options include:

  • Longer handles, which we'll custom-cut just for you
  • Handles in a custom color, which you can select via the Secret Menu
  • 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!

    Absolute favorite

    I love love this leather. The thickness and squishness , pebbling & color. It’s a bit heavier than the regular kodiak leather but it just has such a scrumptious feel to it.
