“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou
40 Years in the Hospitality Industry
Valley Forge launched its first running line fabric collections in 1991.This initial launch was to make 50 sample books, and send to the top 50 companies to select fabric for hotels. This was just the start of something that would continue to grow – and still growing.
Valley Forge then moved from NYC to Fort Lauderdale where they currently reside business.
In 1994, daughter Diana, joined the business and is now Co-President along with her brother, Michael Dobin. It has truly been quite the adventure and is now a family business. Innovative decision-making is now being influenced by multiple generations which created a unique dynamic and perspective. Valley Forge continues to push the envelope as a textile industry leader.

VFF is now the largest supplier of decorative fabrics for the hospitality industry as well as standing strong as being a sustainable steward.
