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!

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.

The Rye Mini Tote is stunning!!

I have a Tan Kodiak tote that I adore but I was contemplating getting it in another color when I saw the Rye mini tote. Talk about love at first sight!!! My decision was made and I placed my order that day. I LOVE this bag!! It is the perfect size for when I want a more delicate bag but it still holds all of my essentials. The leather is buttery soft and has the richest caramel color!! I wish so much that the Kodiak could be made of the same leather. It is truly stunning!! In the first day of use I had several compliments. The only thing I would even think about changing is the drop of the handles. I love the idea of throwing it over onto my shoulder like my Kodiak. The mini tote cones with the shoulder/crossbody strap. This gives you options, but as I am shorter it doesn’t work as well for me on the shoulder. When I got my first KMM & Co tote, I thought I was done buying bags because it really is everything I wanted. The problem now is that I want it in so many colors!
