All over the world, in traditional civilizations, bags are produced by weaving vegetable fibers. An ancient art that, from the Pacific Islands to Europe, unites different cultures by creating beautiful containers created to transport and store everything.
Fascinated by this art, in 1985 the designer Craig Wright created Dragon Diffusion, a brand specializing in the creation of strictly hand-woven leather bags. A brand with a unique and recognizable style, which has made attention to detail and craftsmanship its undeniable strength.
The birth of Dragon Diffusion bags
Beauty and originality, always a pride of Dragon Diffusion.
By observing the weaving techniques of plant fibers in countries as diverse as New Zealand, Japan, France and Italy, Craig Wright thought of bringing the same techniques to the world of leather goods, replacing bamboo and other plants with strips of leather. Thus was born in 1985 Dragon Diffusion.
Each bag is produced by Indian artisans from the city of Chennai. The choice of this place is easy to say: since 1960 there has been a tradition in the breeding of livestock and in the treatment of skins that makes these craftsmen the best in the world.
Beauty, uniqueness and sustainability
Bags are completely sustainable, because for their creation are used strips of leather that could not be used for other uses, due to their irregularity or color. This way it is possible use all parts of the leather, limiting waste to a minimum and making each bag unique.
What makes Dragon Diffusion bags unique
One of the fundamental ingredients of the beauty of these bags is time. Through use, the leather almost absorbs the characteristics of the user, becoming definitively irreplaceable and inimitable.
The idea of making each bag unique comes from Craig Wright himself: he wanted the bags to acquire personality with the passage of time, and the leathers used are ideal for having soft, light bags and at the same time important and impactful.
Another peculiarity: one is sewn inside each bag medal of St. Christopher, patron saint of travelers. A real brand of quality and originality.
