Wayfarer Women’s Tote – Vintage Brown

No matter where your wanderlust takes you, the Wayfarer purse is a good friend for the journey. I call it the “not too” bag. It’s not too big, not too small, not too heavy, not too imposing and not too fancy. Just like Baby Bear’s porridge – it’s just right. But, don’t let the quiet, classic nature of the Wayfarer confound you . . . it is definitely up to the task.

We make the Wayfarer women’s tote in the Col. Littleton Workshop of our soft dry-milled leather. Inside dimensions of 9” H x 12” W x 4” D provide room for your tablet and lots of other  necessities. Inside, there’s a zippered pocket as well as a divided pocket to house your keys, cell phone, etc. 30″ total strap length and 15” strap drop. Magnetic closure for easy entry and security.

May be personalized with three block initials on purse front oval plate. Product packaging includes protective cotton canvas dust bag.

Let the journey begin.

  1. I was having a stressed day yesterday and my husband suggested we drop everything and drive from lower AL to the Colonel Littleton shop in Lynnville, TN. (We are only in AL temporarily due to grandchildren- we are Tennesseans:)). So I finally got the Wayfarer Tote that I had eyed for months. I love love this bag. On first inspection it seems so simple, but it is truly a standout! The size is perfect and I can access belongings very easily – including a couple of items for the 3 year old! Can’t wait to order more pieces – wallet and a crossbody? Thank you for your pursuit of excellence – American made!


  2. I received my Wayfarer tote today as promised. It is everything I look for in a bag. The craftsmanship is second to none and let’s not forget the smell and feel of the leather!


  3. This tote is a perfect size for me. It is sturdy and can stand on its own, and I am glad that there is a magnetic closure. The shoulder straps are just the right length and the bag is very light. Your craftsmanship is top-notch and I am proud to own something made in the USA.


  4. My wife has had her eye on this bag for quite a while and I decided to surprise her with it on Mother’s Day. Needless to say, she absolutely loves it. She actually shed a tear or two when she opened it. This bag is extremely well made just like all of the Colonel’s products. Between the two of us we now have a total of 5 items from the Colonel and we couldn’t be happier with all of them. The customer service is second to none. I ordered this tote at 2:15 pm on a Wednesday and it was sitting on my front porch at 4 pm the next day with standard shipping. My Colonel Littleton collection will continue to grow.

  5. This is a gorgeous bag, a perfect combination of form and function–beautiful leather rugged enough for everyday errands or going to the dog show, yet polished enough take on a business trip. It holds everything I usually carry including cell phone & charger, 2 sets of keys, wallet, medications, notebook, dog treats, and more without losing its smart look. The service of of the Col. Littleton staff is outstanding.


  6. I fell in love with this Vintage Brown tote the moment I opened the shipping box. This is the purse all other purses aspire to be. This is true leather craftsmanship and artistry. It’s perfect for those who want a tote style but one more purse-sized; it’s roomy yet sleek when carrying. The interior pockets allow for organization unlike most other totes. The straps are long enough to comfortably wear with a heavy winter coat. This tote is both elegant and rugged. I feel unique in a sea of copycat designer purses and am proud to support this amazing American company.

  7. I love everything about this handbag. EVERYTHING! The semi-soft texture, the rich color, perfect construction and craftsmanship, the compliments I get, and yes, the smell. And since I never want to carry any other handbag, it’s extremely versatile! Thank you for this beautiful design, Colonel!


  8. Purchased this in black and can’t wait to use it. The leather is beautiful and soft (but not too soft). The craftmanship is acceptional and isn’t too heavy.

  9. I have had the Wayfarer for several years and it just gets better with use and age. Love having the interior pockets. Always get complements, like “Wow, is that a Colonel purse?”. Workmanship is excellent.


  10. I just bought two of these: a Vintage Brown and a OOAK Saddle leather. They are beautiful, supple, and a perfect fit. I can’t stop looking at them! I waited to buy until the Colonel switched out the nickel plates for the Antique Brass and Shiny Brass. Far classier in my opinion. I expect to be leaving these in my will someday. Highest recommendation!!

  11. Love. Love. Love.
    This will be the bag I carry for a L O N G time! The quality is impeccable and customer service is stellar! This will NOT be my last purchase from Col. Littleton.

  12. My granddaughter and I stopped in a few days before Christmas. We bought two Wayfarer bags a few other items as gifts. Sarah helped us and did a perfect job including charming little Lucy. The bags and other items are first rate. FedEx dropped them at the house as promised on Christmas Eve. We love the Colonel’s stuff as well as his stellar business philosophy. Bill I.


  13. STELLAR SERVICE!!! Short story on this bag. I had picked a couple of different bags and wanted to see them in person before I made my decision. Headed to Lynnville, TN on a Monday morning from Alabama. On the way my husband said you should call the store and see if they have all bags in stock. I called the 1-800 number and Rebecca answered. She explained the store was closed on Mondays. Even though I have been a Colonel addict for a few years now, I never looked at store hours on the website. I called back and spoke with Rebecca again and asked if there were any stores that carry the Colonel products as I’ve only bought them online. She told me that we can come on up and they would open the store for us, since we were on the way. WOW–customer service at its finest! I was shocked and said see you soon! Once I walked in and saw the Wayfayer tote I pretty much knew this was it. Beautiful, classy and outstanding quality. I cannot express how much this meant to us. It was a beautiful ride up to Lynnville and being treated in this way made it a perfect day. Excellent example of STELLAR customer service! Thank you to the Colonel, Rebecca, Sarah (i think who helped us) and the rest of the staff and my generous husband. Thrilled to add this addition to my Colonel Littleton collection!!!


  14. Durable and Stylish
    This bag never fails to garner attention. I have had women stop me and ask what kind of bag it is and where I bought it. Most appreciate the craftsmanship and attention to detail. Thank you Colonel (and my sweet husband!) for this heirloom quality bag.

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.
