  2. My husband has ordered one of the Colonel’s bags and has loved it, so I ordered this desk pad for his Christmas present. It arrived quickly and the personal service when I called to verify delivery date was very appreciated. The pad is beautiful, and he has gotten multiple compliments from co-workers. Thank you for your attention to detail in everything you do! We will continue to be customers!!


  3. I started looking for a replacement for my desk pad. I had considered this item and I do really like buffalo. I just wondered about the price for the size. You know how it is. You often want to have something in your hand to play with for a minute. It helps to make up your mind. I really couldn’t find what I was after, but I had purchased multiple items from the Colonel in buffalo in the past. I took a chance. This is beautiful. It fits nicely on my desk. It enhances my workspace. It is easy to write on even with the texture from the buffalo hide. I am so glad I took the risk. As I continue to be convinced. You can’t go wrong with the Colonel.


  4. Beautiful craftsmanship.


  5. Perfect size, fine craftsmanship, and attention to detail make the Colonel’s No. 17 Desk Pad the perfect accessory to my campaign-style desk.

    The best thing about it, though, just may be that I now tend to keep my desk much less cluttered just so i can show off the pad!

  6. I received this from my wife for my graduation from law school and could not be happier with the quality. It is a fantastic product that not only looks great, but also provides the most comfortable writing surface available. I have used Colonel Littleton’s products for years and I have never been disappointed.

Our Story

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.
