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! It 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 handmade from one of our bestselling leathers. Bison leather is often thicker than cowhide, and is known for its rugged durability and rustic look. (Quick disclaimer: This isn't the tote for you if you want a pristine look!) The crossbody bag features the same adjustable (and detachable) crossbody strap you know and love on our mini totes.

Petrol Blue Bison is soft and slouchy, with the big grain and pebbled texture we typically associate with Bison leather. It has dramatic pull-up, the characteristic that enables the leather to lighten in areas of wear and stress, and will acquire a patina unique to you and the way you carry your leather tote. 

Due to the unique nature of each hide and dye batch, your bag may be a slightly different color than the one pictured. Imperfections such as range marks, small scratches, occasional insect bites, and folds in the leather are natural characteristics of all full-grain leather, including Bison leather. It will show scratches and wear, and acquire a patina unique to the way you use your bag.

+ HOW IT'S MADE

 Here at the KMM & Co. studio, we may be known for our leather tote bags and mini totes. But we wanted to design a new handbag especially for people who want to travel light and go hands-free.

The 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 the 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.

KMM & Co.'s crossbody bags are all made by hand and made to order. They can take up to three weeks to ship.

We want your crossbody bag to be the perfect everyday bag, so we offer some matching accessories you can add as extras. You can upgrade your crossbody bag to include a gift set, with a matching card envelope, key clip, and cord taco. Or you can add a matching leather tassel.

Crossbody bags do not include a matching leather tag, but you can order one separately if you'd like to further personalize your bag. Or, you can order your crossbody bag as-is – it's up to you! Reach out to hello@kmmco.com if you have any questions.
