Leather Checkerboard Rug in American Buffalo

This One-of-a-Kind piece will add a touch of classic ruggedness to your home or office.

“It’s not often that you have an opportunity to own something as unique and special as this American Buffalo Leather Rug. I can assure you, there is not another one exactly like it in the whole world.”

– Colonel

This leather checkerboard rug was handmade in our Lynnville, TN Workshop by specially skilled craftspeople using our polished American Buffalo in two contrasting colors. The leather hides used to create this unique product arrived with all of the character and markings inherent with American Buffalo. Most manufacturers cut around or discard hides that contain natural wear, such as barbed wire scratches or other markings.

But at Col. Littleton, we get excited when a hide comes in with natural markings, because we love leather with character. These hand-selected hides go straight to Colonel who uses them to design stellar products you won’t find anywhere else. Who else does that? In this particular case, Colonel personally selected each of the squares that were used to construct this leather rug.

Our naturally-tanned, full-grain leather has heart and soul and over time develops a character, warmth, patina and suppleness not often found in other products. Fully backed with leather and edge stitched for a more finished look.

Overall Dimensions:  6 ft. 4 in. L x 3 ft. 5 in. W

Made in the USA.

Our Story

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.

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.
