The Navy tote is back! We love navy blue here at KMM & Co. HQ, but the perfect blue leather is difficult to source. So we were very excited to learn that one of our favorite American tanneries produces this gorgeous leather! A structured tote bag that will hold its shape, the Navy tote has a smooth grain and a light sheen.

This leather has moderate pull-up (the characteristic that causes the leather to lighten in areas of stress and wear) and will show scratches and wear. Range marks, grain variations, small scratches, and other imperfections are a normal characteristic of this full-grain leather. 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 hello@kmmco.com 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 hello@kmmco.com 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 hello@kmmco.com if you have any questions!

So happy

This is my 4th KMM & CO tote and I love them all. I wanted a darker tote but not black. The navy tote delivers! Don’t be afraid of carrying a bag that has some color. This navy blue tote is stunning. You will not regret it

Birthday gift

I purchased this tote for my daughter’s birthday. At first I thought it was just too expensive. But I rethought my decision and made the purchase. My daughter is just super pleased with the construction of this lovely tote and uses it in her profession.

Fantastic!

I’ve been looking for a classic well-made leather bag that wasn’t just another bag for awhile, and started following KMM a few years ago. I finally bought one in Navy and I am so happy I did. It stands up on its own, gorgeous color, leather quality is outstanding: you won’t regret this purchase.

Wow! Gorgeous color!

I own 4 KMM & Co. totes and this one just might be my favorite! I ordered this one with 9 inch handles and it's perfect for me. The way the color shines outdoors in the sun is gorgeous! If you're thinking about adding the Navy to your collection, or as a first time purchase, you will be thrilled you did.
