DrachenKite.com brings kiting to the international forefront: in archival history, programming, exhibitions, events, publications, and more.
Thousands of Kites from all corners of the earth, from way back traditions to modern day.

Drachen is a site for Kite enthusiasts from all over the world, who actively post and share their designs, artwork and experiences regularly.

Users upload material from front-end posting forms and it is displayed depending on criteria, such as country, material, type of kite, significance and more.

Search and filter functions allow a visitor to find specific entries among the many thousands of posts.

The site showcases kites, lessons, how-to articles, kite history, etc. It is probably the most extensive and informative site in the world on the subject. I am stunned by the large number of kite enthusiasts and the creative art on display, especially from China and Japan,
The stories of past kiting adventures are priceless, and remain on this website. The site was built using Toolset.
