About us

Draper-Ballou is a family-owned company which focuses on high-quality, unique items serving a specific, albeit diverse, need.  All of our products are designed and manufactured in Hopedale, MA.

The name, Draper-Ballou, pays homage to the town where we were born and have lived our entire lives.  Hopedale, a mill town, was founded by Adin Ballou in the 1800’s.  The Draper Corporation was the center of the community for many decades, employing many of the local townspeople, as well as our own family members.

Draper-Ballou aspires to produce products which emphasize our attention to detail and our hope for the products to be passed down for generations to come.  We hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy designing and manufacturing them.
