What kind of leather do you use?

A few items, primarily belts, are made with our stronger, stretch resistant full-grain Italian Bridle Leather. We also have a special collection of luxurious American Alligator products.
Who designs your products and are your leather products really made in America?
All of our products are designed by the Colonel himself, and yes, all of our leather products are made in a small town in America – Lynnville, TN, USA.
Do you accept custom orders?
Even though we do not offer custom orders, Colonel loves to hear new product ideas. Feel free to reach out with any new product or product-modification ideas!

What is Full-Grain Leather?
Our products are made in the USA of the finest leathers, thread, hardware and other materials. Full-grain leather is the strongest, highest-quality leather available for use. It refers to the topmost layer of the hide where fibers are the strongest. Our full-grain, vegetable-tanned leather is a natural leather. Since it has not been overly-processed, it retains the character and markings on the surface of the hide such as scars and wrinkles and is expected to have variances in shade, color and texture consistent with the external characteristics of natural leather. This natural leather ages with a beautiful patina and carries with it the marks of your life and daily journey. This process makes each Col. Littleton piece as unique and individual as the person who carries it.
What is vegetable tanning?
Vegetable tanning is a process that uses natural tannins extracted from plant-based materials such as bark, leaves, and fruits instead of synthetic chemicals. It is a traditional and natural method of tanning leather that has been used for centuries and produces a durable and high-quality material. The process takes longer and requires more labor-intensive steps compared to synthetic processes like chrome tanning. Vegetable-tanned leather has a unique appearance and develops a distinctive patina over time. It is also considered to be eco-friendly and sustainable compared to other tanning methods as it uses natural, renewable resources and does not release harmful chemicals into the environment.
Product Care Information
Natural Variations – Our products are made in the USA of the finest leathers, thread, hardware and other materials. They are not mass produced but handcrafted in small batches from full grain leather and other natural materials which are expected to have variances in shade, color or texture consistent with the external characteristics of natural leather.
Brass and copper have been chosen by fine craftspeople for centuries. Our products that feature brass or copper can be expected to develop a rich patina with use and age. This is a natural progression and should be expected. These product variances, consistent with the use of natural materials, are all part of our plan to give you a unique product that will grow old gracefully and develop character and beauty as time goes by.
How do I store my products?
Col. Littleton products are designed to last for generations with proper care.. When storing your Col. Littleton leather goods for an extended period of time, we advise keeping them in the cotton canvas dust bag they came in and storing them in a cool, dry place. We would also advise you to treat your leather products with the conditioner contained in our Leather Care Kit, which has been specifically formulated to condition our natural, vegetable tanned leather. This is especially important if you live in a hot, dry climate which is generally not kind to fine, natural leather goods and could promote dryness and cracking without proper conditioning.
How often should I use Leather Care on my product?
There is no set rule for how often you should condition your leather products. Climate and use will both affect how quickly the leather requires conditioning. When the leather starts to look dull and dry or has unwanted surface scuffs and scratches from use, that is usually an indicator that it is time to condition. Our Leather Care Kit, which has been specifically formulated to condition our natural, vegetable-tanned leather, is available for purchase and has the tools you need to keep your leather looking beautiful for decades.
How do I clean my leather products?
With proper care, Col. Littleton products are designed to last for generations. For best results, treat the entire item for a uniform look. Our leather care is not a spot cleaner. Marks from ball-point pens, oil stains, etc. are pretty much “there.” However, use of our leather care can help blend them, as well as other surface scuffs and scratches, into the background making them less noticeable. In time, they will become part of the beautiful patina and aging process typical of natural leather. To clean your leather goods, we advise first using a dry cloth to remove any dust or dirt. Then using a soft cloth, apply the leather cleaner that comes in our Leather Care Kit to the entire surface, massaging it into the leather. When the conditioner has had a chance to dry, use a soft bristled brush to buff the leather, bringing back its shine and beauty. Our leather conditioner has been specifically formulated to condition our fine, natural leather. Please do not use regular soap and water to clean your leather products. Doing so will remove the natural oils in the leather, causing discoloration and possibly shortening the lifespan of the product. See Colonel’s short video presentation on cleaning your leather products HERE.
Is your leather waterproof?
No, as with most natural vegetable-tanned leather, our products are not waterproof. Water and other liquids will stain the leather. Please do not use regular soap and water to clean your leather product. Doing so will remove the natural oils in the leather, causing discoloration and shortening the lifespan of the product.

How do I contact you?
Is Colonel a real colonel?
He gives about three answers to this question:
- He is an honorary Colonel in Tennessee and Kentucky.
- He will jokingly tell you that there are only three Colonels – Colonel Sanders, Colonel Tom Parker and Colonel Littleton.
- Back in the day, every small town had a widow somebody, and a Colonel so and so. He became Lynnville’s small-town Colonel.
Our customers often ask “Is the Colonel real?”. We can assure you he is real. He is at the Col. Littleton Office & Workshop basically every day. He designs and stands behind the products we produce. If you have an opportunity to visit our retail store in Lynnville, you may get a glimpse of him in the store or walking up the sidewalk in front of the store.
