Brown Kodiak leather is:

  • Pebbled and oil-tanned
  • Soft and slouchy
  • Dimensional, with moderate pull-up
  • Made in America (in Atlanta, Georgia!)
  • Interior pocket
  • Interior strap for keys or sunglasses
  • Brass snap closure
  • 100% full-grain leather, unlined

    The scratch-and-dent Brown Kodiak mini tote is part of our one-of-a-kind collection. Scratch-and-dent Brown Kodiak tote bags have scratches, scars, range marks, variations in color, grain anomalies, insect bites, and other cosmetic imperfections. These imperfections come about either during the life of the cow or during the tanning process and don't affect the integrity of the bag.

    The Kodiak collection is made up of our softest and slouchiest leathers, with a luxurious pebbled texture and beautiful pull-up. Cut out of supple Kodiak leather, each mini tote features top handles (designed for carrying the tote by hand) and a detachable shoulder or crossbody strap made of coordinating 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 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 return 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.

    This bag is gorgeous! It’s the perfect size and dimensions. Not too big not too small. I love the deep rich color and the beautiful brown pull-up. The only thing I wish I could add was an exterior pocket on the back of the bag to hold my phone. Hoping they will have an “exterior pocket add-on” as an option in the future.
