  • Soft and slouchy

  • Brass snap closure
  • 100% full-grain leather, unlined

    The scratch-and-dent 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 and grain, insect bites, and other imperfections. These imperfections come about either during the life of the cow or during the tanning process. The most common imperfections for scratch-and-dent Tan Kodiak bags are scratches and range marks.

    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 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.

    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!

    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 hello@kmmco.com if you have questions!

    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.

    Wow’d!!

    This bag is perfection! I LOVE a good crossover bag that isn’t too small like many where you struggle to find things or fit extra items if you’re out and about and need to put things. This one is a perfect size, super multifunctional, the quality is top notch!! There is no way to notice that it’s a “scratch and dent” it’s perfect. When I opened the package my response was “Wow!” I just love it. Price was great too with the extra discount added. Thank you so much! Looking forward to add more pieces of these great bags and accessories.

    I love my bag! It’s the perfect size, and so soft and just amazing. I just wish I would have had it monogrammed.

    Heirloom quality. First class company

    After finding KMM&CO on Facebook, I knew these totes were more than just beautiful, a bag that would be used and last a lifetime. I wanted to try for the scratch and dent for a great deal. I read reviews and viewed tote after tote, choosing the Mimi Tan Kodiak and waited for it to pop up in scratch and dent. My tote arrived exactly 2 weeks from my order placed. One of my most exciting birthday/anniversary gifts to arrive ever. My scratch and dent does have a couple of small scar type scratches on one side, a bit of deeper texture on the other side in one area. These markings make this tote mine and really even more beautiful. The weight of my Mini Kodiak Tote is a bit heavier that what I have been carrying but not too heavy at all. I chose the Mini because this is my purse and it is the perfect size as a purse, the snap for security, the crossbody for me is a most. I placed a second order for the leather tag with my initials monogram on it. After the order was placed I wanted to add something to this tag, I emailed KMM&CO on a Sunday and received a very quick reply. Customer service is wonderful. Maybe this is silly but I feel this bag could one day be something my 18 month old granddaughter would want to carry, bringing back fond memories of our adventures together. Its timeless, its classic, its simply beautiful. I will use this bag for years and years, and years, I love it. ❤

    I am in love with my mini tote. I can’t even find the flaw on it. Top notch quality. So worth the money I spent on it.
