  1. Beautiful! This doesn’t begin to describe the #21B Ashley Crossbody I received as a gift from my daughter and son in law! I only like to carry my phone, wallet and keys and this bag is perfect for just that. During the week I have a heavy tote I carry to work so when I am off, this small crossbody is the break I am looking for. I love the the two tone color! I feel I can where it all dressed up or with my jeans very comfortably. When in a rush, it slips into my tote till I get to my destination. The quality of the craftsmanship is perfection. But I must add, the packaging was a delight! I sat down and read everything the Colonel had to say like I was reading a good book! Thanks for the coaster (on my nightstand) and the moon pie!


  2. Received the Ashley Crossbody as my retirement gift. Can I tell you I’m in love with it! I’ll compare it to a simple black dress classy. I look forward to many years of carrying it and I can pass it down to my granddaughter. How neat would that be.


  3. I received this purse as a gift from my son-in-law. (I have a perfect, thoughtful one.) I have been enjoying it for a while now. I have used crossbody purses for several years because after have rotator cuff surgery on both shoulders, I can not carry a lot of weight with a purse. The Ashley is wonderful. I love the softness, the light weight, the look. It is a classy look that will forever be in style. The shoulder strap is so soft and supple, you almost forget it’s there.
    There’s sufficient room for all my essentials. Perfect son-in-law also gave me the little wallet that matches. This bag checks all my boxes that I need and want. Feels like it was made for me. Thanks Colonel. Elaine


  4. If you like carrying small bags, this is a great one to have. It’s more than a clutch yet it will not allow you to carry too much. I’ve gone from getting the bigger-the-better bags to not wanting to carry anything at all. Then I decided I needed to carry something so started with clutches, moving to “just a tad” more. I have to give my husband credit for really paying attention to this aspect of my “needs”. But the Ashley two-tone is quality leather and beautiful. There’s no gusset at the bottom to set it down or spread for room. The necessities from your pocketbook slip nicely inside and you look stylish without the fear of laying it down and forgetting to pick it up or adding weight to your posture or comfort.


  5. I have the Wayfarer bag that I have carried every day (4 years old) and wanted a smaller bag for shopping and short trips out and about. This bag is perfection (as is the Wayfarer)! I get compliments on my Wayfarer all the time and I’m certain I will this one as well. Love the quality, uniqueness and style. Well done and thank you for the quick delivery!!! The Moonpie was a nice touch as was the coaster. No customer service like the Colonel’s so thank you.

  6. No words! Not a single thing in this uniquely beautiful shop I wouldn’t love to have! But I settled on this simple,yet elegant bag as my first choice to start my Colonel Littleton collection — and starting with early 2018 Christmas shopping already!Something here for EVERYONE! The ladies were very hospitable,friendly and helpful! If you’re EVER in the area STOP! You won’t regret it!


  7. I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of my purse today, and thought I would tear into the box once it got here. But that didn’t happen. Instead, as I opened the outside shipping box, I slowed down because of the amazing packaging – and enjoyed every minute of it! (As did my husband and envious oldest daughter looked and listened as I read each little card.) From the personal stories about moon pies to the fun little coaster (that already has a home on my desk)it is hands down – the BEST packaging of any product I’ve ever received! Now – about the purse… what’s not to love?! The smell of the beautiful leather, the unique and beautiful craftmanship of the design, the size, the feel, the hardware – it is MORE than I imagined! I’ve been purchasing leather for some time now from a different company, and this is my FIRST product from the Col. Littleton… and it will NOT be my last! I am so impressed and thrilled with my purchase! And as I’m scanning the website again, I’m wondering if my hubby may regret buying this one for me. 😉 I’m just sad I didn’t find the Col. years ago!

  9. I am a proud owner of the No. 9 tote and absolutely love it! I recently purchased the Ashley handbag because I wanted a smaller option. The combination of black and brown provided a flexible option that I was looking for. On a recent trip to Salt Lake City, I carried the Ashley because that I could hang it across my body and have hands free to pull luggage and hold my small carry on. The purse held a small billfold, my phone, and sunglasses making it easy to reach my ID and phone for fast checkin. As always, people commented on my beautiful purse. I was only too glad to tell them where they could also purchase quality leather items!


  10. This purse looks fantastic in the pictures, but even better in person. I came across the Colonel Littleton brand through an online article and immediately took to the feel of the brand. Then, I saw the workmanship of the products…I’d been looking for a smaller purse and promptly ordered this one. Someone from the company contacted me within 24 hours and personally apprised me of my order’s progress in the friendliest way. When I received my order, the packaging was truly exceptional. I’ve truly never seen its equal in presentation – such charm and quality. I’m not sure I’m ever going to be buying handbags anywhere else again!

  11. I love this bag! I also got my initials on the front. Go into the store if you can and you will leave as friends. The store makes you believe in America.


  12. Love this bag, brought it back to Florida! Such an original piece. I also got my initials on the front of the bag. Handcrafted in the USA! If you have a chance, visit this store. You will take away a piece of America and the “salespeople” in the store will become your friends.


  13. I love this bag!! My husband purchased it for me as a late Christmas gift (I was undecided on which one I wanted). It is beautifully handcrafted and I love my initials embossed on the front flap. Can’t wait to show if off! A perfect choice for my first Colonel Littleton bag.


  14. I received this purse from my husband and I just LOVE it. so well made. I have received so many compliments over the past several days. I can’t wait to come to the store and have it embossed! This is an heirloom piece – will definitely hold up for years to come. I have purchased many gifts from this website for family — and they have always been pleased. It is quite fun to be on the receiving end of something so well crafted!

Our Story

Our Warranty
Our Warranty

We are committed to producing quality, handcrafted products that showcase our time-honored standards of excellence and deep respect for the Americana tradition. Col. Littleton products go through rigorous testing and numerous quality inspections before being shipped to our customers. Should you receive a Col. Littleton product that is defective in materials or workmanship, you can count on us to make it right. Our guarantee is limited to the cost of the product itself. It also does not cover normal wear and tear. We feel if you just plain “wore it out,” you got your money’s worth. Also, we cannot be responsible for an item which has suffered through alteration, damage due to improper cleaning, improper use, mishandling or accident. If we made a mistake in personalizing your product or if the product is defective in materials or workmanship, of course we’ll replace it. Otherwise, personalized products are not returnable.

Our Leather

Leather is a passion for me. There are more kinds of leather and leather processing out there than you can shake a stick at. You can mold leather into just about any shape or form. You can make every hide look just alike. You can dye it green, blue or even pink. You can apply a finish, coat it, spray it or make it look slick and shiny. That’s not what we’re about at Col. Littleton. To me the beauty is in the naturalness of the leather. People always comment to me about the special “feel” of our leather and how it becomes even more beautiful after it has some wear on it. It’s all about our leather process. When you buy Col. Littleton leather goods, you’re buying, for the most part, full-grain American vegetable-tanned steer hide that has received a minimum of alteration. We don’t apply a finish to hide character markings. The way I see it, every marking tells a story and covering them robs the piece of its life and character.

I see a real resurgence in the country today for products made in America. Our focus is to design and create products that speak to the time-honored traditions that have made this country great such as handmade craftsmanship, authentic rich leathers and quality workmanship. There’s a nostalgic feel about the products we make . . . most of them could have been made 100 years ago and many are made using turn-of-the-20th-century methodology and machinery. Our products are true Americana; forged as our forefathers intended by people who care and take pride in making a beautiful product.
