The iconic KMM & Co. tote just got a little more affordable! This Navy Kodiak tote -- a soft and slouchy bag with a prominent pebbled grain -- 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. 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 number of 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 -- and just as many to break it in and make it yours. Made with vintage techniques for a modern world, your KMM & Co. leather tote bag will show where it’s been with wear and patina -- and every time you scratch it or fold it or get caught in the rain with it, you make it more unique.
Creating a tote bag involves tools such as needle and thread, blades and flame, even stamps and presses. Each tote bag gets its start on the cutting table, where we inspect every cowhide and choose the right piece of leather for your tote. We cut each tote out of a single piece of leather. There’s nowhere to hide imperfections, so we cut carefully.
Next, we make the handles out of 10-ounce belting leather, which will break in and soften with use. We sew the side seams of the bag on an industrial machine. Finally, we hand-set the tote’s handle, pocket, and interior strap with 16 copper rivets.
Every 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 bag for you. But if you want a tote that looks and feels like real leather, and will acquire a patina unique to you and the way you use it, 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:
- You can add longer handles, which we'll custom-cut just for you.
- You can add a crossbody strap, which is adjustable between the lengths of 41.5 inches and 56.5 inches and can be taken on and off of the bag.
- You can add a gift set, which includes a matching card envelope, key clip, and cord taco that will be made from the same leather as your tote.
- You can add a leather tassel that matches the color of your tote.
Or, you can keep things simple and order your tote exactly as-is. It's up to you! Please 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 ordered the navy color. Perfect for fall and winter, now I would like a spring and summer tote. Perfect size for a purse and carrying items. You won't regret your purchase
Even though scratch-in-dent, mine was on the bottom so couldn’t tell. Very well made only thing I would critique is it would be nice to have the bottom feet on it. But would not hesitate to buy again and it is a life long bag as not a flimsy leather.
Beautiful tote. Don’t really notice “scratch and dent” area at all. It’s perfect. My daughters will probably want it!
This dark navy kodiak tote is wonderful! Thick, soft, luscious, pebbled leather...a true delight!
I ordered the scratch and dent tote and couldn’t be happier! I honestly can’t find a blemish on it. It’s perfect for my everyday carryall. Great product and arrived before promised.
