The scratch-and-dent Storm Grey tote -- a structured tote with a distressed, matte finish and gorgeous pull-up -- 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.
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 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 email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions!
This is my 2nd bag and I absolutely love it!! It is very different from the other colors and is a real Standout!! This is a scratch and dent which I love, because my bag is even more unique!!
I love everything about this beautiful handmade tote...the color is gorgeous, rich, texture so soft I love touching it. I’m so glad I added 10 inch straps as I am an artist and will carry sketch book or watercolor paper in it (art) at times. I love the darker strap color with the grey. So sophisticated looking!! Truly a work of art! I added words to my tag “Simply Beautiful “ And my initials to remind me how much I love simply beautiful things ..to create that way in my art and decorating/design.
I ordered 2 kmm & co totes just from the Facebook ads and reading the reviews. I was not disappointed, Hands down the best leather bags I have , and I have A lot of bags. The quality is exceptional , leather amazing, the smell is awesome !! Thank y’all so much for doing such a good job on these bags ( and Accessories ) ❤️
