The scratch-and-dent Olive Kodiak tote -- a slouchy tote with a pebbled grain and a warm olive green hue -- 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. These imperfections come about either during the life of the cow or during the tanning process, and the most common ones on scratch-and-dent Olive Kodiak bags are scars and range marks.
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.
While we don't stamp names or initials on our leather totes, we do make a range of leather tags that can be embossed with your name, initials, motto, or favorite short quote.
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 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 email@example.com if you have questions!
We want your tote to be perfect for you, so we offer a variety of ways to customize it! Custom options include:
- Longer handles, which we'll custom-cut just for you
- Handles in a custom color, which you can select via the Secret Menu
- A detachable crossbody strap, which has brass hardware and adjusts between 44 inches and 51 inches
- A brass snap closure (the same brass snap closure on the mini totes)
Or, you can keep things simple and order your tote exactly as-is. It's up to you! Please note that scratch-and-dent totes are 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!
I love it! Such a great neutral color. Leather feels amazing. This was one of several I ordered.
I recently purchased a Scratch and Dent Olive Kodiak tote and it is stunning. The only thing “wrong” with it is that there appears to be what looks like a little splatter of stain on the upper corner of the backside. It is very faint and not really noticeable. Nothing that detracts from the bag at all! I love the subtle olive green color…it’s just beautiful, what more can I say?
I am so happy with my olive Kodak tote. It is just perfect !!! Love the color. I have the smaller one as well. Love them both but really like the bigger better. Thank you.
