I wanted to write a bit more about that leather tote and the designer but it seemed impossible to find any information in the internet. I managed to get a hold of the designer behind the brand, and he was happy to tell me more about Dragon Diffusion. Craig, who is specialized in woven leather, mainly designs for other brands and therefore doesn’t do much promotion on his own collection, which is done in his small studio in Brussels. He says that every bag he makes has a story , some life , a raison d’etre .
My tote is one of the brand’s signature models and named Capra, after the Nigerian goat skin which was the first material used for this design. Craig explained that making of this bag is actually a complicated process as the challenge is to to keep the design simple & minimalist with complicated features. The raw edge and no inside lining looks simple but is hard to achieve . All this makes me love my bag even more!
