A bit about us- located in California, Purple Dragon Fabrics is run by an aunt/niece team. We started in 2017 by offering custom designs on fabric and have expanded the business to include faux leather/vinyl, zippers, and bag making hardware. We have years 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!
