No. 17 Desk Pad in American Buffalo
American Buffalo and American Steerhide meet at the corners of the No. 17 Desk Pad in a harmonious blend of rugged refinement.
The No. 17 Desk Pad offers great protection for your desk top and a touch of rugged elegance to your office décor, while standing up to the challenge of years of use.
“If you have searched for a new desk pad, my guess is that most of them you’ve seen are devoid of style and, frankly, downright boring. They are likely not special . . . neither are they representative of your surroundings; and sometimes, they’re not even real leather. Our No. 17 Desk Pad goes well beyond utilitarian necessity to enhance, complement and professionalize your surroundings.”
– Colonel Littleton
Construction and Extras
There’s nothing like the smell of new leather to add to the ambiance of your office at work or at home. Colonel has made this handsome desk pad in deep, rich, full-grain, wonderfully textured Tobacco Brown American Buffalo and trimmed it in our traditional Vintage Brown American Steerhide to give it a nice contrast in color and a good sense of design.
The side you don’t see is also quite nice, as Colonel has lined it in our full-grain American leather. Add a touch of distinction by having your desk pad engraved with three initials on the oval, solid brass plate. Dimensions are 18”T x 24”W x 3/8”D. It comes packaged in a protective cotton canvas, drawstring dust bag with the Col. Littleton Cameo Logo.
Made by our skilled artisans in the Col. Littleton Workshop, Lynnville, TN USA.
When it comes to American Buffalo, Colonel says,
“Expect a leather that is unapologetically rugged with more character, nicks, scrapes and variations in color.”
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.
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.
