Unique Characteristics

Each Dragon Diffusion bag is handwoven, resulting in unique variations in color and texture. These characteristics are not flaws but a testament to the handmade quality and natural materials used.

Avoid Heavy Loads

Refrain from carrying excessively heavy items to prevent deforming the bag’s shape. For example, if you use your bag to transform a computer, tablet and book, the bag is likely to be damaged more quickly and leather strips may come off.

Cleaning Your Bag

Regular Cleaning

Use a soft cloth to regularly clean your bag. Gently wipe the surface to remove dust and dirt. Avoid using water or rubbing the leather vigorously.

Dealing with Moisture

If your bag gets wet, blot the water away immediately with a soft, dry cloth. Never immerse the leather in water or use artificial heat sources like radiators or hairdryers to dry it. Allow the bag to dry naturally in a well-ventilated area.

Preventing and Handling Stains

Stains and Spills

For minor stains, use a slightly damp cloth to dab the area gently. Avoid using chemical cleaners or harsh substances that can damage the leather. For ink stains or severe damage, it’s best to consult a professional leather specialist.

Natural Dye Bleeding

Natural dyes used in our bags may bleed initially, especially with dark colors or in high humidity. To help set the dye, leave your bag in sunlight for several hours. As the dyes are natural, it may take some time for them to stop bleeding. Over time and some use, the bags will develop a special used patina that in fact enhances the feel and look of your Dragon Bag.

Storage Recommendations

Protective Storage

Always store your bag in a dust bag when not in use. This allows air circulation and prevents mildew. Ensure the dust bag is soft and does not scratch the leather.

Maintain Shape

Stuff your bag with tissue paper or the original packaging to help it maintain its shape. Avoid overstuffing to prevent deforming the leather.

Avoid Direct Sunlight and Heat

Store your bag in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight, radiators, and excessive changes in temperature. High humidity can cause the leather to absorb moisture and develop mold.

Long-term Maintenance

Conditioning the Leather

To keep the leather hydrated and supple, use a leather conditioner periodically. Apply a small amount on a soft cloth and gently rub it onto the leather. Avoid products with harsh chemicals.

Natural Patina Development

Over time, your Dragon Diffusion bag will develop a natural patina, enhancing its appearance and feel. This aging process is a sign of quality and character in traditionally crafted leather goods.

Professional Repairs

For significant damage or persistent stains, we recommend consulting a professional leather specialist or cobbler. They have the expertise and tools to restore your bag without causing further harm.

Ethical and Sustainable Practices

Craftsmanship and Ethics

Our bags are meticulously handwoven in India, adhering to the SA8000 Social Audit standards, ensuring ethical and fair working conditions. Additionally, our leathers are certified by the Good Leather Group.

Supporting Women’s Welfare

We are committed to the welfare of women through our dedicated social programs, promoting their well-being and empowerment.
