Red Kodiak Mini Tote

$225.00

  • Made in America (in Atlanta, Georgia!)
  • 10 inches tall, 12 inches wide, and 4 inches deep
  • Fixed handles with a 5-inch drop length (for carrying your tote by hand)
  • Detachable shoulder or crossbody strap adjustable between the lengths of 44 inches and 51 inches
  • Interior pocket and interior strap for keys or sunglasses
  • Brass snap closure
  • 100% full-grain leather, unlined

On a quiet Saturday at the KMM & Co. studio, we had an idea. We took our bestselling standard tote, shrunk it down to a mini size, and added a crossbody strap and snap closure. The result? Our new mini tote! It's perfectly sized for days when you want to travel light. And it's surprisingly roomy for a small tote: Your favorite clutch wallet or envelope clutch will fit inside, along with your phone, your keys, and anything else you need to carry with you!

Kodiak is our softest and slouchiest leather, with a luxurious pebbled texture and beautiful pull-up. The Red Kodiak mini tote is made of beautiful red Kodiak leather. Each mini tote features handles (meant for carrying the tote by hand, not on your shoulder) and a detachable shoulder or crossbody strap made of coordinating belting-weight leather.

This style comes standard with a brass snap closure. Inside each mini tote, you'll find an interior pocket on one side, and a strap for your sunglasses and keys on the other. Imperfections such as variations in color, range marks, small scratches, insect bites, and folds in the leather are normal for Kodiak leathers. 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, whether that tote is a standard or mini size! We always start with a hide of beautiful, full-grain leather. Our team inspects every hide to choose the perfect one to use for the body of your bag. Next, we cut the handles and crossbody strap out of 10-ounce belting leather, which will break in beautifully (and stand up to years and years of use). We sew the side seams of the tote on an industrial machine.

Then, we hand-set the handles, pocket, and interior strap with a total of 12 copper rivets. Finally, we add a solid brass snap closure, and an adjustable (and detachable) crossbody strap fitted with solid brass hardware. You can take the crossbody strap on and off of your mini tote, and the trigger snaps at the end of the strap clip onto brass grommets hidden inside the tote. (When the crossbody strap isn't on the bag, you can't even tell it was there!)

Every KMM & Co. leather tote bag will become what you make it. If you want a leather tote 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 will acquire a patina unique to you and the way you use it, this may be the one.

KMM & Co.'s leather tote bags -- including our mini totes -- 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 over $50 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. 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! You can upgrade your tote to a gift set, which includes a matching card envelope, key clip, and cord taco. Or, you can add a matching leather tassel.

Mini totes 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 mini tote as-is -- it's up to you! Reach out to hello@kmmco.com if you have any questions.

What a gorgeous Tote!

I am thrilled with my mini tote. It’s very comfortable to carry and holds more than I had hoped for. The red color is deep and luxurious looking. Thank you! Worth the wait.

Sporty bag

Nice size! Well made. I like that it comes with some extras. Cross body strap is a nice option that is included.

Nice

Love that it’s unlined. Haven’t used it much because we can’t get out much these days. Good size for a ‘purse’, not a big tote.

Report Back After Carrying Red Mini Tote Exclusively For Over One Week

A bag can be beautiful and you will love it out of the box, but after carrying it for a week, you may decide that it is not for you. When you unbox a bag, you are of course attracted to the beauty of its style. You notice everything about it. But you know that a bag is really working for you when you don’t even notice that you are carrying it. When a bag is not working for you, you notice everything — that it is too heavy; that it hurts your shoulder when you carry it for too long; that you have to fumble to open it when you are carrying too many things; that it is too hard to open when you need your keys right away; that it has too many pockets and you forget where you have put things; that you can’t just drop something inside when you are in a hurry and find it later; that you are always scrambling to find things; that it is cumbersome to lift when you are in your car; that, no matter how you set it up, your bag never seems to be organized. When your bag is working for you, you hold it in your hand, transfer it to our shoulder, open it to put things and take things out — without even thinking that you are carrying the bag. It feels almost like part of your body. A bag that doesn’t work will sit in your closet no matter how beautiful it is. A bag that you don’t even know that you are carrying will stay in your hand, or on your shoulder, day after day after day. After carrying it exclusively for one week, I can report that my Red Mini Tote is working out so well that, again and again, I forget that it is even there. Thank you so much for providing me with this beautiful bag that I don’t even notice that I am carrying.
