Fabric Innovations is a design-driven fabric company that has been providing bedding, drapery and fabrics to the hospitality industry since 1997. The certiﬁed Women Business Enterprise (WBE) is recognized as a leading supplier of linens, bedding and custom fabrics to some of the industry’s most prestigious hotels. With the recent addition of upholstery fabrics to the company’s lineup, designers can now come to Fabric Innovations for every fabric, every guestroom, every time.
“We have a unique niche market developing hospitality textiles that meet and exceed industry standards,” says Deborah Herman, President, CEO, Owner & Founder of Fabric Innovations. “Research and development sets us apart and keeps us on the forefront of the business.
“At Fabric Innovations, we specialize in global procurement programs for companies worldwide,” continues Herman. “Whether the goal is to revitalize an existing brand or create a new one, our approach is to develop patterns authentic to the brand by deﬁning the company’s brand strategy, developing visual concepts, and translating such elements into a recognizable and consistent product.”
High-quality products combined with excellent customer service are among the factors that have elevated Fabric Innovations to award-winning status, earning the company the prestigious City Beat News Spectrum Award for Customer Satisfaction for 2016 with City Beat’s highest possible rating of 5 stars.
The company’s primary manufacturing center is located in South Hill, Va., where more than 200 skilled staff members work with state-of-the-art equipment to produce top-of-the-bed and window coverings for hotels and resorts around the world. “We pride ourselves on quality and have a seven-stage process of inspection, which takes place at each production facility across the globe to ensure that every seam leaving our manufacturing facilities is ﬂawless,” says Herman.
Fabric Innovations simpliﬁes the overall process for clients by offering both fabrication and installation services, with a high priority on meeting opening dates for customers. “Deadlines are our top concern when it comes to a project,” says Herman, “and our team goes above and beyond to make it happen.”
To that end, Fabric Innovations has a very detailed and astringent order processing procedure. “We anticipate any issues that may become a problem for clients in advance in order to prevent anything from arising,” says Herman. “A great sales team and a well organized internal team of employees keep us on top of all client needs throughout each and every project.”
In addition to receiving the 2016 Spectrum Award, Fabric Innovations was awarded Interior Design magazine’s Best of the Year for Hospitality Textiles for its Touché Matelassé bedding in November 2015. “The honor is all
the more humbling as we were named winner of this competitive category during a year with record-breaking numbers of both submissions (50 percent more) and votes (62,000),” says Herman.
Then, in December 2015, Deborah Herman was presented with the 2015 NEWH Icon of Industry award. (NEWH is the premier networking resource for the hospitality industry.)
