We’re a Brighton Platinum Heart Retailer!
In addition to being the top Brighton retailer in the Midwest and in the top 1% of Brighton retailers nationwide, The Little Traveler is the only Brighton Platinum Heart store in Illinois. What makes the Brighton collection so popular in our store is that each of their products have a defining detail that gives them special meaning. Whether it’s love notes engraved on a necklace or a handbag adorned with a treasured photo, Brighton products help create lasting memories.
Brighton was launched in 1991 with a single collection of belts. Over the years, Brighton has become an accessory company with something for everyone. Handbags and purses were added to the line in 1993, followed by small leather goods, watches, jewelry, charms, home accessories, eyewear and most recently, luggage.
Today Brighton is the only major accessories line featuring products that coordinate from head to toe. A customer might choose a lipstick case that matches a wallet, jewelry that matches a pair of sunglasses, a handbag that matches her luggage, or an entire coordinating collection of multiple accessories.
Brighton believes the difference is in the details, which is why Brighton’s design team travels the world seeking inspiration and then sketch each creation by hand. A host of artisans then capture all the detail and beauty of the original pencil drawing. The hand assembly of Brighton leather accessories – many of which are made of fine Italian leather – often requires as many as 140 individual manufacturing steps using up to 40 different parts. It is a decidedly traditional process that seems more in keeping with the Renaissance era than the high-tech 21st century.
