About

Are you ready for something AWESOME??!!! I know we are! After years of tinkering around, DaSueDragon Designs is proud to finally announce its first Kickstarter: 

Leather Folding Dice Towers
Leather Folding Dice Towers

The Leather Folding Dice Tower is a must-have addition to any D&D lover's collection. Able to fold flat for easy storage and transport, its leather material-base design allows for extreme durability and easy use. NO ASSEMBLY REQUIRED!!! Just fold or unfold for use! Additionally, it is much quieter than most wooden felt-inlayed dice towers on the market.

Leather Folding Dice Tower - Folded
Leather Folding Dice Tower - Folded

Each dice tower is laser cut, hand painted, and finally, hand-sewn. The towers are made from 100% real cowhide leather and sewn together with wax-coated thread. Each stand at 9.5"x4"x4" wide when unfolded and 9.5"x8"x0.5" when folded flat. When folded flat, the dice tower fits into any standard sized folder for easy carry. For added variety, these dice towers also come in a variety of color choices to choose from.


Added Awesomeness

So to make the deal a little more sweet, we teamed up with various artists to create beautiful drawings to be lasered onto the sides of the dice tower. So far, we have 4 artists working with us to produce a variety of designs. There will be 6 art designs to choose from if our basic goal is met. Also, all artwork will be reimbursed and help go to the artist for their help and services.

We will add the final few images as they are produced. If stretch goals are reached, additional artwork will be added.


Our Mission Statement

DaSueDragon Designs is devoted to making high-quality, hand-crafted leather work. We strive for the best customer service and satisfaction.

Our Products

Leather goods produced by DaSueDragon Designs are 100% genuine leather direct from the local Tandy Leather supplier. Each hide is hand-picked to ensure the best quality and longevity of the items. 


Our Goals

We strive to provide the best quality products we can and still maintain each being hand-crafted items right here in the USA. With this, we are asking a lot from this Kickstarter to keep everything manufactured right here at DaSueDragon Designs and all still by hand. A laser cutter is the one thing that is keeping us from making these right now for everybody, so we are kickstarting this project so that one may be obtained. With the laser cutter, we will be able to come out with more intricate, and more awesome projects and Kickstarters in the future for everyone. With that, $12,000 is our goal for this Kickstarter so we will be able to provide everyone with all in-house created items.

Shipping

We will ship to most places in the world. Prices all vary depending upon location and which tier is ordered. There is too much to list, but before you buy it should prompt you as to what the cost will be. We ship in the US Priority 1-3 days. International is standard shipping and can be between 1-5 weeks.

Risks and challenges

We want this product to be 100% hand-made in the USA so we will manufacturing and assembling everything in-house with the laser cutter. The hand-sewing might delay shipment if there is insufficient labor, however we will be working along side a Makers Space in order to guarantee access to a laser cutter (if one cannot be obtained) and skilled crafters to assist us. Knowledge of the laser technology and how to operate the machine is already there, we just need the machine itself to produce the product. If we are unable to obtain the machine for in-house use, there might be delays in producing the products due to having limited access to the makers space.

DaSueDragon Designs has been in business for several years and has sufficient leather material, goods, and finances to fulfill whatever quantities are ordered.
