|Dragon Diffusion was founded in 1985 by Belgium designer Craig Wright who wanted to create exquisite and skillfully crafted bags that tell a story. Specialising in woven leather, all bags are made in India, with the help of local artisans, using wicker and reed in varying, natural tones.|
Each piece is made using historic techniques which stand the test of time, transposing methods from other fields to leather. The Brussels-based brand has taken structural inspiration from the South Pacific Islands and New Zealand Tribal Kit bags, the Japanese craft of Bamboo Basketry, and the refined Wicker Panniers & Baskets from France and the UK.
So why choose India? Since the 1960's, handwoven leather has become a speciality in the city of Chennai, India, due to the abundant supply of Goat leather along with the knowledge of hand-weaving in the Madras area by local artisans.
Dragon Diffusion cares about sustainability, from production to final products, using leather that can't be sold due to marks and scratches. These defects go unseen when the leather is cut into fine laces and interwoven to create unique bags.

With the Spring/Summer 23 collections steadily rolling out, it’s time to introduce some of the new and exciting labels joining the Couverture roster this season.
Born at the intersection of cutting-edge technology, environmental consciousness and democratic design, Early Majority has seemingly emerged from nowhere, fully formed and intent on breathing new life into the fashion landscape.
To celebrate the arrival of cosy new winter collections at Couverture, we invited brand consultant and digital creator Brittany Bathgate to pop by the store for a catch-up and coffee whilst she was visiting West London from her hometown of Norwich.
