Our first stop today will be at Hoffman California-International Fabrics. In 1924, Rube Hoffman founded Hoffman California Fabrics, selling wool flannels to California department stores and clothing manufacturers. Rube played an important role in the growth of California's textile industry. His sons, Philip and Walter, both championship surfers, joined the company in the 1950s and combined their passion for traveling to their favorite surfing spots with discovering unusual printing processes and different types of fabrics. Soon, Hoffman Fabrics abounded with their original designs of surfing scenes, beach life, and underwater settings.

Today, three generations of Hoffman’s are actively involved in the day-to-day operations of the company. More than eighty employees are involved with filling orders and shipping fabric to retail fabric stores, craft shops, quilt stores, apparel makers, wholesale distributors, and manufacturers throughout the world. The Design Department creates more than 800 designs of colorful screen prints and luscious Bali batiks each year. We will have an opportunity to learn more about designing and printing this beautiful fabric while we tour the facility.
