Wayfarer Tote in American Buffalo

No matter where your wanderlust takes you, the Wayfarer 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 in the Col. Littleton Workshop of our American Buffalo 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 front oval plate.Product packaging includes a protective cotton canvas dust bag.

Let the journey begin.

American Buffalo – “Expect a leather that is unapologetically rugged with more character, nicks, scrapes and variations in color.” ~ Colonel (Read more about American Buffalo Leather here)

  1. Just received (shipped within 2 days despite COVID crisis!). Quality appears amazing. Handbag was a perfect balance between my desires for American-made leather, and her desires for not appearing “tooled leather” or “country” (despite her marrying a Redneck). Was worried Buffalo might be too weathered for her compared to more traditional steerhide, but looks great. Purchase a handbag every Mother’s Day as gift, and one of my favorites.


  2. I received my Wayfarer tote in buffalo today and it is exactly what I hoped it would be. The size is excellent for an everyday bag, the handle drop is perfect. The inside pockets fill everything that I carry on a day to day basis. The leather is quite unique – sturdy, rugged, beautifully grained. As I expected, the hide has a couple of marks which he was careful to place inside the bag. The leather has a very unique smell to it, not unpleasant. I am delighted with this bag. I also purchased the journal and it is perfect as well. If you seek an excellent, unique tote this is one you will not regret buying.

  10. I am not one to write reviews, but I felt compelled to write one here, especially, since there were none posted thus far. Historically, I use 1 single purse year round until it wears out. I was introduced to Col. Littleton years ago through a purchase made from Orvis and have been a huge fan ever since! I love simplicity, longevity, quality, and a company that wishes to produce products they are proud of rather than something they can mass produce to make another buck. Simply put, this is the workmanship you will find over and over again with Col. Littleton products. This purse is fashionably simple, yet elegant and makes quite a statement without any fuss. It’s roomy, while also offering pocket space on the inside for smaller items; Additionally, it opens wide providing easy visibility of contents. The very first day I used it, I received several compliments, even from strangers, and they haven’t stopped coming. That all said, I am most excited that I don’t have to look for another purse for years to come!

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.
