No. 12 Leather Care Kit

Colonel’s No. 12 Leather Care cleans, polishes and protects your leather items and is specifically formulated for our natural, vegetable-tanned leathers (steerhide, American Buffalo and American Alligator). Works well on all our leather products from bags to wallets and everything in between. Handy Col. Littleton drawstring bag for storage. 7 fl. oz. Bottle. Made in the USA.

(Contains 1 Bottle of Leather Care, 1 Horsehair Buffing Brush and 2 Soft Application Cloths)

“I’m a fan of well-traveled leather goods, but every now and then leather items may need a touch-up to revive them and keep them looking their best,” says the Colonel.

Directions for Use: Shake bottle well. Apply a small amount of leather care to a soft cloth and rub thoroughly into leather, particularly in areas of repeated flexing. Let dry. Then, polish briskly with a soft cloth or brush for a rich finish. Not for use on fibrous or suede-finish leathers. Keep out of reach of children.

Note: For best results, treat the entire item for a uniform look. This is not a spot cleaner. Marks from ball-point pens, oil stains, etc. are pretty much “there.” However, use of our leather care can help blend them, as well as other surface scuffs and scratches, into the background making them less noticeable. In time, they will all become part of the beautiful patina and aging process typical of natural leather.

    I own a lot of leather products and have tried at least 8 different brands of leather conditioner. I still use some of these on my shoes, gloves, car interior, etc. However, when it is time to condition my prized vegetable-tanned leather products, I choose the Col. Littleton No. 12 Leather Care balm. A little bit will go a long way and it really does condition the leather well, and it smells great too. After applying the balm, hit it with the provided horsehair brush to really bring out the shine. Another great product, which is what you expect from Col. Littleton.

    This is by far the best leather care product I have ever used! I’m on my second bottle and plan to keep buying more as long as they keep selling it. I do wish you had the option to buy the bottle separate because I already have the kit. The only way I know to get the bottle only is to buy from their store in Lynnville, TN. I remember contacting them and this is what I was told. However, I highly recommend this product. It smells amazing (like a nice, clean, authentic leather smell) and it conditions amazingly well. Like all of Colonel’s products, it’s top tier.

    Just received the CL leather balm kit. It was more than I expected. I tried it on my buffalo saddlebag and it made my bag shine and brought out all of the color in the hide.
    This is the greatest leather balm I have ever used.

    I own several CL products. I use the No. 3 Book Bag daily. Over the years it has developed a great patina on the backside, however on the flap side it has faded due to use in the rain and needed some help. I recently purchased the No. 12 Leather Care kit to help me with the fade. I couldn’t be any more excited about the results. The first application brought most of the color back, I used it again and it looks like new! I would highly recommend the Leather Care Kit! I am very satisfied with the results, and would not hesitate to use it again! Thank you, CL!

    Do not underestimate the value of the No 12 Leather Care Kit. Works extremely well on the Colonel’s leather products and Shell Cordovan Shoes and Boots.

Our Story

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.

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.
