KMM & Co.'s iconic leather totes just got more affordable! This one-of-a-kind Tan Kodiak mini tote 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.

The Kodiak collection is made up of our softest and slouchiest leathers, with a luxurious pebbled texture and beautiful pull-up. Cut out of supple Kodiak leather, each mini tote features handles (meant for carrying the tote by hand, not on your shoulder) and a detachable shoulder or crossbody strap made of coordinating belting-weight leather.

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 standard or mini size! We always start with a hide of beautiful, full-grain leather. Our team inspects every hide to choose the perfect one to use for the body of 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). 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.

KMM & Co.'s leather tote bags -- including our mini totes -- are made by hand and made to order, and they can take up to three weeks to ship. Need yours faster? Email hello@kmmco.com and we'll see what we can do!

Check out our shipping page for more information on typical processing times. 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!

If you aren't happy with your order, you can return it for free within 30 days of receipt. However, we can't accept returns of items that are customized for you. Check out our returns policy for more details, or email us at hello@kmmco.com if you have questions!

We want your tote to be perfect for you, so we offer a variety of ways to customize your bag! You can upgrade your tote to a gift set, which includes a matching card envelope, key clip, and cord taco. Or you can add a matching leather tassel.

Mini totes do not include a matching leather tag, but you can order one separately if you'd like to further personalize your bag. Or, you can order your mini tote as-is -- it's up to you! Reach out to hello@kmmco.com if you have any questions.

Found it!

I have found the right bag for me! There is a reason Kodiak leather is a top seller. I have a structured tote in another leather-pretty but it's very heavy-doesn't lay soft/slouchy when carried. I got this Scratch & Dent Mini Tote in Tan Kodiak. Yes- there is a hide small dark scratch near the top of the bag & a couple not too obvious blemishes-obviously from the cow-that's okay with me. There is uneven pebbling of the leather-it looks more interesting,has character & I like how it feels. My embossed leather tag from the other tote looks great on this one. I think this bag is amazing-it has subtle variations in color. I'm almost glad it didn't start off looking perfect! I didn't have to worry about "getting the first scratch!" Rub your finger over a scratch & it blends in. As they say-if you're looking for a bag that is going to look perfect forever...this isn't it. I personally can't wait to get the straps broken in-softer-& just let this bag keep gathering more character. I'll carry this bag for a very long time. Thanks KMM for a beautifully crafted bag!

Gorgeous Bag

I purchased the Scratch-and-Dent Tan Kodiak Mini Tote. Shipping was pretty quick and the bag exceeded my expectations. It has just a tiny blemish on it but it blends in with the color and I don’t really notice it. I would definitely buy another bag, the color, finish and quality is great, I think it will be one of my favorites for years to come.
