  1. Received this handbag a few days ago. I must say the craftsmanship is superb and the leather is beautiful. Already my go-to handbag. Will enjoy for many years to come.

  2. I received this bag as an early Christmas gift. It is beautiful and well-constructed. It is small enough to use when I need my hands free, yet large enough to hold my essentials. It holds my keys, wallet, pocket notebook, phone and pens with room to spare. As always, it was packed beautifully enough to match the quality of the bag. Here is the best part of my story. I asked for a Wayfarer Tote for Christmas just a few hours after my husband had secretly ordered this bag. When he heard my request, he called Colonel Littleton to cancel the first order and make a second order for the other bag. The woman he spoke to was friendly and helpful. She said she could definitely cancel the first bag, or he could give me both. He laughed and agreed that I would enjoy both. I owe this wonderful lady a big thank you.

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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

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 steerhide 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.

Our Craftsmanship

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.
