Drachen Foundation: the world's largest online kite collection

The Drachen Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation devoted to the increase and diffusion of knowledge about kites worldwide.

Over 25 years, the Drachen Foundation has:

- Developed workshops and exhibits about the art, science, history, and cultures of kiting;
- Supported selected projects and special events;
- Published books and an online journal and newsletter;
- Funded kite research globally;
- Archived kiting materials and kites;
- Operated the Drachen Study Center in Seattle;
- Sold original kite kits, publications, and materials through its online store.

In 2011, after months of work, the new Drachen Foundation website was launched. The undertaking of this project took us back to a time when the organization began by reminding us of the many projects, books, workshops, exhibits, and kite stories we’ve been involved in. Likewise, the website aims to revisit these endeavors – in a new and exciting, easy-to-navigate format – and brings the Foundation back to its original mission: to disseminate kite information, worldwide.

With today’s technology we have digitized the majority of our collection and are now able to offer it online for the first time. One of the original purposes of the Foundation was to collect and maintain a kite archive. We are excited to open that archive to the world kite community.
