History & Mission

At Hobbs Bonded Fibers, we never forget that a quilt is more than just a gift – it’s an expression of inspiration and handwork, invested hour upon hour, often with a specific recipient in mind.

And because we know how important quality and consistency in the products included in these works of art and love is, we have dedicated ourselves to manufacturing only the best, for you.

Hobbs Bonded Fibers is a Texas-based company. We trace our roots back to 1970, when the company manufactured cushioning material for the bedding and furniture industries. Larry Hobbs, the CEO and President of Hobbs Bonded Fibers, is at the helm of our company, an organization with four generations of family commitment to the art of quilting.

Because Hobbs Bonded Fibers offers diverse applications within the fiber industry, we research and develop fiber technologies for the automotive, aerospace, healthcare and military industries that lead to innovation in the quilt batting industry. Hobbs manufactures a complete line of quilt batting, pillow inserts and fiberfill in packaged and/or roll form. Our broad production platform brings fibers to market well ahead of their time, leading to a better quality product and a more enjoyable quilting experience for you.

We’re an industry leader for one reason: we listen to you and take to heart your suggestions.

We value the opinions of quilters, quilt shops, craft stores and fabric retailers and we take very seriously the input that you share with us at major quilting events around the country, as well as the thoughts you share through your local quilt guild.

Thank you for helping us to develop a wide selection of premium products to meet your quilting needs.


How Is Hobbs Batting Helping You?

Hobbs is "the best batting and a wonderful company! You may quote me all you want, I tell everyone about Hobbs..."My sister quilts like it is a job, (in) my life it's a hobby. We both do large and small quilts. She does a lot of service projects. We both do our own quilting...Thank you again for making a wonderful product! Oh yeah, we love all of them!"
