About Us

The Draper Knitting Company

Draper Knitting is a 6th generation family run organization based in Canton, Massachusetts where it was incorporated in 1856.  We are steeped in tradition with hundreds of years of experience throughout our production team.  We attribute our continued success to our ability to balance the traditional values of a family business with the forward thinking and second to none design and development that we offer to all of our customers big and small. Draper is also a wonderfully unique blend of old and new machinery, old and new processes and innovation.  We pride ourselves on still offering three types of fabric formations and endless blends of fibers for the simplest of applications to the most complex blends that help save lives. Draper Knitting Company’s corporate headquarters house the corporate offices as well as a 120,000 square foot manufacturing facility in the heart of Massachusetts.  This facility includes over 40 knitting machines that can knit an unlimited amount of fabric design options, CAD capabilities, our own dye house and extensive finishing capabilities.
