KMM & Co.'s iconic leather totes just got more affordable! This one-of-a-kind Atlantic Blue mini tote is part of our one-of-a-kind collection. Scratch-and-dent tote bags have scratches, scars, range marks, variations in color, insect bites, and other imperfections. (Range marks and scratches especially are very common on scratch-and-dent Atlantic Blue bags.) These imperfections come about either during the life of the cow or during the tanning process.

Atlantic Blue is a lightweight and slouchy leather with a smooth grain. Each mini tote features top handles (meant for carrying the tote by hand, not on your shoulder) and a detachable shoulder or crossbody strap made of belting-weight leather.

Seconds didn't quite make the cut as full-priced totes, but their imperfections are just cosmetic. In other words, they'll last just as many years as our full-priced totes! We have a few scratch-and-dent totes available in this color, so yours may have different markings than the bag pictured. Please note that all one-of-a-kind totes are final sale, and ineligible for return, exchange, or alterations. 

It takes a lot of steps to make a leather tote by hand, whether that tote is a first-quality tote or a scratch-and-dent bag. When we receive a shipment of leather, we inspect each side and designate it a first or second. When you order a scratch-and-dent bag, we pull a few seconds sides and choose the perfect one for 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). Like the body of the bag, the handles may have cosmetic imperfections. Next 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!

We are able to offer one-of-a-kind totes, including scratch-and-dent bags, at a discount because they are final sale and are not eligible for return or exchange. (Please be sure that you want a scratch-and-dent tote with visible imperfections when you place your order!) Check out our returns policy for more details, or email us at hello@kmmco.com if you have questions!

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.

Love at first sight.

I love the color and smell of this all leather bag. The size is perfect for me since I’m approximately 5 feet tall and 75 years old. I love the variegation of color and contrast of the straps. The stiffness also keeps it upright instead of sagging.

Perfect calm/neutral blue

Amazing color! Still a good neutral. Leather is soft and smooth, but enough structure to stand up on its own. You won’t regret this color!! It’s perfect for all seasons!

Beautiful stressed leather purse

I was pleasantly surprised of how beautiful this purse was designed! I love the design and the color’. I hope to get the matching billfold and passport holder to go with it! It was definitely worth the purchase! I highly recommend this company! Thank you!

Another winner!

This is my 4th mini tote and it again does not disappoint! It is hard to believe that it was a scratch and dent tote because I cannot find any defects at all. The color is beautiful and I love the smooth soft leather that is different from the wonderful kodiak leathers. The color can be used all year and is a nice change from my brown and black bags! The quality of these bags is superb and I look forward to purchasing a regular size tote!
