What could be a more appropriate way to mark your place in your Bible, or in any book for that matter, than with an Old Rugged Cross Bookmark.

It’s more than just a place marker.  Each bookmark is strategically cut to show an authentic, natural scar in the leather . . . a gentle reminder of the price that was paid, which helps us keep things in perspective on our daily journey.

Made from our richly textured, full-grain, polished Tobacco Brown American Buffalo with a leather tassel at the top.  Edge coated and edge stitched which are hallmarks of quality construction that add durability and an aesthetically pleasing look to the bookmarks.

Set of three bookmarks comes packaged in a protective cotton canvas drawstring dust bag with the Col. Littleton Cameo Logo.  Handcrafted in the Col. Littleton Workshop, Lynnville, TN USA.

(Not sold individually.)

When it comes to American Buffalo, Colonel says,
“Expect a leather that is unapologetically rugged with more character, nicks, scrapes and variations in color.”

  1. Most meaningful product on this site! I love the scarred leather as a daily reminder of what my Savior went through for me on the old rugged cross. I plan on giving one cross to my son for his graduation, and one cross to my daughter at her recital. And of course, a matching leather cross for mama! So, no matter where we are all at, we can look at them and be together, and reminded of God’s great love for us. Thank you for being an unapologetic company that still has values and convictions. Will definitely be ordering again.

  2. I ordered these crosses when I purchased my bible cover. Beautiful…. The natural scar on each cross is very meaningful and I am able to share that meaning when I have gifted them to those that are struggling with life’s hurts and hangups and habits. What a wonderful way to share perspective on my daily journey along the road less traveled.

  3. The Colonel Littleton Old Rugged Cross bookmarks are a beautiful and meaningful addition to any book collection. Each bookmark is made from full-grain, polished Tobacco Brown American Buffalo leather, and each one features an authentic natural scar that adds character and history to the piece. This detailed Old Rugged Cross design, is a perfect reminder of faith and perspective. The leather is richly textured and the edge coating and edge stitching are hallmarks of quality construction that add durability. The set of three bookmarks comes packaged in a protective cotton canvas drawstring dust bag with the Colonel Littleton logo, which makes it easy to store and transport. These bookmarks are not only functional, but they are also a true work of art. I highly recommend them for anyone who appreciates quality and meaning in their bookmarks.

  4. Great quality, good feel, not as thick as they look online, which I like. I wish they would add the option of Initials on these.

  5. These 3 small bookmark crosses were perfect gifts for my 2 nephews’ First Communion. Beautifully made and a perfect size to fit in their cards. The little note card that came with each of them is a gentle and meaningful reminder to appreciate all living things.
    I also want to say they came very quickly and were thoughtfully packaged.

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.
