The iconic KMM & Co. tote just got a little more affordable! This one-of-a-kind Atlantic Blue tote -- a soft and lightweight tote with a gorgeous blue hue -- is part of our one-of-a-kind collection. Scratch-and-dent totes 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 sometimes during the tanning process.
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 couple of Atlantic Blue seconds in stock, so yours may have different markings than the one 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 belting-weight 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, backstitching carefully for extra reinforcement. (We always avoid a seam along the bottom of the tote for structural integrity.) Then, we add the interior pocket, handles, and interior strap with copper rivets, hand-set to withstand decades of use.
Your 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 tote for you. But if you want a tote that looks and feels (and is!) heirloom-quality, and will acquire a patina unique to you, this may be the one.
KMM & Co.'s leather tote bags are made by hand and made to order, and they can take up to three weeks to ship. Need yours faster? Email email@example.com and we'll see what we can do!
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 scratch-and-dent totes at a discount because they are final sale and ineligible 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 shipping and returns policy for more details.
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 snap closure (exactly like the the brass snap closure on our mini totes)
Or, you can keep things simple and order your tote exactly as-is. It's up to you! Please note that longer-than-standard handles, a crossbody strap, and other modifications are a custom order and make your tote final-sale and ineligible for return or exchange. Select your drop length carefully, as we are unable to make alterations to final-sale items, as per our alterations policy. Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions!
The atlantic blue is a beautiful dark teal color. Blown away by the craftsmanship and quality of the bag! Thank you KMM!
I love this tote! The quality is outstanding, and the color is beautiful! I highly recommend this bag.
I bought this tote listed as having imperfections - “ scratch and dent”. Well- it arrived and I can’t find an imperfection/scratch or dent! It looks as good as the other tote I had ordered! The Atlantic Blue is a beautiful color and the leather is soft and slouchy.
This is my first KMM & Co tote, and I am absolutely in love! It is beautiful! With the variations in color, the flaw is not noticeable. I also love the matching clutch wallet I got to go with it. Thank you KMM & Co for making such wonderful pieces! It is my first, but it will certainly not be my last!
I love shopping KMM & Co! This was the first One-Of-A-Kind bag I purchased. I saw was, because I have now purchased 2 One-Of-A-Kind bags. And I purchased this one because I love the mini I purchased as soon as the Atlantic Blue came available, again. The flaw in this tote is minimal and with the variegated color of the leather, its not even noticeable. My mini has now been in use for over 2 months, and it looks perfect. I can't wait to stuff my Atlantic Blue tote for my next road trip. Thanks KMM & Co!
