Things customers love about the KMM & Co. bucket bag:
1. Gorgeous full-grain leather
From Cypress to Kodiak and beyond, the bucket bag is made of beautiful full-grain leathers. That's the highest quality leather made, with all the natural grain and character of the leather intact.
2. Handcrafted drawstring closure
A bucket bag isn't complete without a handcrafted drawstring closure. And great design is as much about what you leave out as what you include: This bag is made without the grommets that typically discolor or cause excessive wear on a drawstring.
3. Comfortable, two-ply strap
Whether you want to carry it crossbody or on one shoulder, the bucket bag's cushy two-ply strap adjusts to the right length with solid brass buckles. The strap also has gorgeous topstitching – one of our favorite details on a bag full of great details.
How the bucket bag measures up:
Not too big and not too small, the bucket bag is a great everyday handbag. It has an adjustable strap for carrying on one shoulder or crossbody, plus a single compartment that can fit all your essentials.
• 10 inches in height
• 9 inches in width
• 9 inches in depth
• Strap adjusts from 32 to 44 inches
• About 1.5 pounds in weight
"This bucket bag is the best design out there. Such amazing quality. I've literally sold my other brand buckets and just have KMM & Co. ones now. Love them."

How the bucket bag gets made
Each bag is handmade in the USA (in our Atlanta studio)! First, we cut the pieces of your bucket bag from a hand-picked side of full-grain leather. We hem the top edge for a clean and classic finish.
Next, we stitch the body pieces of the bag together. Then, we make the drawstring closure: a perfectly proportioned leather cord with an easy-to-slide keeper and elegant (yet fun!) leather tassels.
Finally, we make a squishy, luxurious, two-ply shoulder strap. The strap shows off our new coordinating thread, one of the many details that set a KMM & Co. bag apart as an heirloom.

Ask away! FAQs about the bucket bag
How much does a KMM & Co. bucket bag hold?
The bucket bag has a slightly larger capacity than a KMM & Co. mini tote. It can carry your book, a small tablet, a water bottle, some snacks, a large wallet, keys – the list goes on. (Don't forget snacks!)
What if I need a longer (or shorter) strap?
No problem, we can make sure the strap is the right length for you! Just send us a message and we'd be happy to make a shorter strap or to craft a strap extender to ensure a perfect fit.
How suitable is the bucket bag strap for all-day carrying?
The bucket bag strap is VERY comfortable! To make a strap in the same leather as the body of the bag, we designed a two-ply strap that's soft, squishy, and meticulously topstitched. It takes skilled hands and lots of time to make it this way – but we're up for it.
What kinds of markings can I expect with full-grain leather?
Full-grain leather retains all of its original grain and character, including any imperfections. You might see range marks, grain variations, small spots or scratches, folds, or color variation. They're all a beautiful part of the leather's natural character.
