Rye 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 that is 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

The Rye mini tote is the newest addition to our permanent collection. This leather is lightweight and light in color, with lots of character and natural imperfections, scratches, and range marks. This is a buttery-soft and very slouchy leather bag, with a smooth grain. It features handles made of belting-weight leather. Like all KMM & Co. leather totes, your Rye mini tote will be handmade and made to order.

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, spots, small scratches, insect bites, and folds in the leather are normal and very visible on 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, 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.

This is the only bag I use!

I am obsessed with this purse. I bought the large bag in a camel color. It goes with everything and I love the side strap inside for my glasses and my keys , the look of the bag and size and the SMELL...amazing! I just bought my sister another one for her birthday after she had complimented mine a couple times! I’m about to order another one for me for Christmas! You will not regret your order as the quality and the feel of the leather!

So Buttery Soft!!

I am in love with my new Rye Mini tote Crossbody! It is beautiful! The leather is incredibly soft and buttery feeling. It is a floppy leather, that I absolutely love! The hardware is very sturdy and the crossbody strap is comfortable. I am very pleased and plan to get a Tan bag next! Thank you KMM & Co;)

Love Love Love

So happy to receive my Rye Mini Tote. As I am from Singapore, it took a while for me to receive my order. It is definitely worth the wait as it is like love at first sight. Love love love how smooth and soft the leather feels. The handles and strip are very sturdy and believe they will soften over time. The hardware are high quality. Beautifully design to last forever.

Perfect bag

I originally tried a Madewell bag in a similar size and shape and it was too structured and preppy for me so I went looking for something else and so happy I found this company! Definitely happy to support a smaller business that hand makes their bags. The quality of my bag is amazing!! The leather is so soft and I know the bag will continue to get even more beautiful with time. It does seem slightly darker in person than the photos online but I don’t care. The size is so perfect, I’m even using it as my diaper bag right now, fits an extra outfit for her and a few newborn diapers along with my phone, sunglasses, etc. Would definitely by another bag from this company!

The perfect large tote

I’ve always carried small purses so for me, the mini tote is large. I love it though. I love the color, feel, and smell. I bought the matching tassel, medium, and large pouches. I plan to use this tote for many years to come.
