Meet the Sapphire mini tote: a limited-edition leather tote in a light, bright blue! The leather has lots of character and natural imperfections, spots, scratches, range marks, and variations in dye and color. This mini tote is a soft and slouchy leather bag, with a smooth grain and a little pull-up. It features handles made of belting-weight leather. Like all KMM & Co. leather totes, your mini tote will be handmade and made to order.
The mini tote comes standard with a brass snap closure. Inside each mini tote, you'll find an interior pocket on one side, and a strap for your sunglasses and keys on the other. Imperfections such as variations in color, range marks, spots, small scratches, insect bites, and folds in the leather are normal and very visible on this leather. Due to the unique nature of each hide and dye batch, your bag may be a slightly different color than the one pictured.
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.
