Dragon Fusions special technique of colouring the un-dyed crust leather straps in natural vegetable dyes is unique. Once the leather laces are prepared for weaving, the highly skilled leather weavers use their hands to craft the bags.
This is the unique nature and feel that they give to the products, and over time and some use, the bags will develop a special used patina, that in fact enhances the feel and look of this hand crafted piece.
From the pragmatic intelligence of the craftsman-creator with an obsession for hand-woven bags, used daily as practical carry bags in indigenous communities on islands, atolls and remote coastal areas - these basket bags can be found in almost all countries around the world.
From the South Pacific Islands to Aotearoa’s traditional Kiti bags, to the fabulous Japanese craft of Bamboo Basketry, and the refined Wicker Panniers & Baskets from France and UK - all of this basketry work has been transposed into the brands own unique craft of leather weaving.
