The iconic KMM & Co. tote just got a little more affordable! The scratch-and-dent Grey Kodiak tote is a soft and slouchy bag with a pebbled texture. Scratch-and-dent totes have scratches, scars, range marks, variations in color, insect bites, and other imperfections. These imperfections come about either during the life of the cow or sometimes during the tanning process.
Scratch-and-dent bags didn't quite make the cut as full-priced tote bags, 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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
One-of-a-kind totes are final sale and ineligible for returns or exchanges, so please make your selection carefully! We also can't accept returns of items that are customized for you, such as tote bags specially ordered with longer-than-standard handles. 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 email@example.com if you have any questions!
I love this bag! It is roomy enough to hold all of my essentials and still has space for my ipad and a book. All of this without being too heavy or awkward to carry. I ordered this bag with 9” handles and it sits on my shoulder so comfortably. This is my third tote from KMM&Co because once I tried one I had to have it in a variety of colors! I’d like to say I have enough, but something tells me there are more totes in my future. :) One thing I can say for sure is that KMM&Co is the only place I’ll ever need to go for a tote because they have created the PERFECT bag and I couldn’t love it more!
I love it! It’s super soft! The handles are the perfect size! I love that the corners of the bag can go either in or out! This is my second bag from them and I love them both!!
I’m loving my bag, it's imperfections give it character, and feeling of comfort for me. Just my style!
