No. 9B Tote – Personalized, American Made, Full-Grain Leather

The No. 9B Tote carries a lot – plenty of room for your laptop, tablet, portfolio… and all the other stuff you can’t leave home without. And the feeling of America’s best leather – dry-milled to supple, soft perfection – is hard to beat. It may be the best feeling (and smelling) purse you’ll ever carry. 

There’s an inside zippered pocket as well as a divided pocket for easy access to your phone, keys and other essentials. Unlike many other totes, this one has got a magnetic snap closure to keep contents secure.

Tote Construction & Extras

We make this tote at the Col. Littleton Workshop in Lynnville TN, USA using vintage brown, dry-milled steerhide leather. First, the leather is tanned in a small Tennessee tannery. Then it’s tumbled in half-a-century old wooden barrels to achieve its incredibly soft and supple feel. You’ll find this go-to purse patinas beautifully; its character improves with age and use over the years. 

  • Tote dimensions: 12″ H x 12″ W x 4″ D
  • Inside zippered pocket 
  • Inside divided pocket 
  • Magnetic snap closure
  • May be personalized with three initials on the brass oval plate
  • Warranted

I just received my No. 9B Tote and I am in love with it! It holds everything I need and I could sit around and smell the leather all day! My husband and I WILL be back!!


  2. Bought my wife this tote for Christmas. She was elated. Perfect for travel to wineries in California! We visited the store in Lynnville and loved it! More leather in our future!


  3. I bought this tote for my wife’s Christmas gift. She’s not seen it yet but is going to love it! I could spend all day in the store. Colonel, you’ve created the finest leather products I’ve ever seen. Simply incredible designs! I can’t wait to make a purchase for myself the next time I’m in town.


  4. I was staying at my friends farm in Cornersville and came to Lynnville to look in your store. Bought this purse and several other thing along with it. I am from Johnson City, Tn and love meeting the Colonel and all his very nice workers. I love the quality of all the work. Thank you so much. Polly Torbett


  5. Drove 3 hours to visit the Col. Littleton store and was not disappointed. We’ve looked at other leather bags and none were the quality of this. The old saying is still true, you get what you pay for. This one will last and be handed down from generation to generation.


  6. I love my Tote!!! The quality is unmatched. We visited the store and received the most outstanding service. We also purchased a wallet and hat like The Colonels. So proud they are providing beautiful, quality products and MADE IN USA, Lynnville, TN!!!! Thank you!! This will not be our last purchase!!


  7. My husband bought the No.9 tote for me for our anniversary. I absolutely love it! This is the first Colonel Littleton item we have purchased but I am sure there will be more. There is no comparison to the high quality of workmanship in this bag.


  8. I ordered this tote with personalization and it was delivered the next day!! The tote is very high quality and is packaged very nicely. I appreciate the attention to detail that Colonel Littleton provides. I would rate this tote as an excellent buy!

  9. Just another winner! From pocket knives to totes and the wallets, tags, journals and all between! Just outstanding!
    The staff!: Golly don’t you know they get tired of having to personalize all of those emails? Kudos to all of those sweet ladies!!!!
    Hey! Moon pies! Only reason I order from the Colonel! LOL
    Not only fun to deal with such an outstanding company but the products, without exception, are above top drawer!
    The Colonel would fit in well with west Texan’s!

  10. There are few things in life that give me as much joy as giving someone a gift. Over the past year I purchased a 1942 attache, 3#25 portfolios and 1 #9 journal as gifts for coworkers and friends. I love these gifts for their quality and care that goes into each one. All of these were so appreciated and will be passed down and used for many years. With all the excitement around these gifts none compared to my wife opening her #9B tote Christmas morning. She uses it every day and I don’t think she has ever loved a gift I have given her as much as this. Thanks to Colonel Littleton for creating quality products and to Sarah who gives the world’s best service. Stop in and see her if you’re passing through. Wish I could give more than 5 stars!

    P.S. After visiting the store and listening to his latest CD I think Colonel Littleton should write a book “The world according to Colonel Littleton”.


  11. I love my bag! It is my first purchase but not the last.

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.
