The Purple Kodiak tote is a soft and slouchy bag, with a luxurious pebbled texture and beautiful pull-up. It's a purple version of our Tan Kodiak tote, which is by far and away our bestselling leather tote bag. Your Purple Kodiak tote will show scratches and wear, and acquire a patina unique to the way you use your bag.
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 variations in color, range marks, small scratches, occasional insect bites, and folds in the leather are natural characteristics of these totes. They all come about either during the life of the cow, or sometimes during the tanning process.
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 take up to three weeks to ship. (Check out our shipping page for more information on typical processing times!) All orders over $50 ship free within the continental 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 items that are customized for you, such as tote bags ordered with a snap closure or crossbody strap. But totes ordered with longer-than-standard handles but no other modifications are now eligible for return or exchange!
Check out our returns policy for more details, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org 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 44 inches and 51 inches
- A brass 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 a snap closure or a crossbody strap are a custom order and make your tote final-sale and ineligible for return or exchange. (Totes ordered with longer-than-standard handles but no other modifications are now 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, as per our alterations policy. Reach out to email@example.com if you have any questions!
I ordered this bag for my wife as an anniversary gift after she gave me a little hint of what she wanted (the link to the bag). She loved the bag.
Everything about this tote is absolutely amazing .... I’m in love
Love my new Purple tote.
I have been looking at these totes for some time. One day my hubby asked what I wanted for our anniversary. So I decided to give him a little hint, the link and color ideas to KMMCO. Well I received my tote. I LOVE the bag. It's amazing. Exactly what I have been looking for in a bag for years. Now I have had many different designer purses. But my main requirements are leather, quality craftmanship, durable for everyday life. I have always handed down my handbags to my girls when I no longer wanted them. This one is staying with me! Thank you KMM! I love my tote bag. It is perfect!
Olive and purple Kodiak
Both are absolutely fabulous. More then what I was expecting. Was bored at work and this company flashed up on the internet. I am so happy. Next purchase will be the black kodiak. The craftsmanship is wonderful and I know the more I use them the better and softer they become. ✌️
Purple leather bag
I love the bag! Well made, great size and very professional looking.
