About Us / FAQs



We are located in California, Purple Dragon Fabrics is owned and operated by an aunt/niece team. Founded in 2017, we brought our custom designs to life on fabric and have expanded to include faux leather/vinyl, zippers, and bag making hardware. We have decades of experience and a personal love of sewing with backgrounds in bag making and costuming. 

We hope you'll love our custom items as much as we love creating them!
