Culp Inc. has earned the Hearts Award, which it will accept at the upcoming 33rd Arts Awards on Jan. 6, 2023, during the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market.
“We are inspired by Culp’s strong company practices and values that not only affect the direct communities they operate in, but the world as a whole,” said Sharon Davis, executive director of Art, the creative home furnishing network. “They 100% represent the kind of heart-based leadership this award stands for.”
Nominated by Carrie Dillon of the International Textile Alliance, Culp is being honored for its commitment to employees and the communities they work within, as well as for its environmental, sustainable and social practices.
Headquartered in High Point, North Carolina, Culp continually works to advance its sustainability initiatives, encompassing not only environmental aspects, but also social and corporate governance components, according to a press release. Its holistic approach to sustainability positively impacts local communities and ensures ethical operations throughout the supply chain.
“We are honored and humbled to be a recipient of this year’s Hearts Award,” said Iv Culp, president and chief executive officer of Culp. “We’d like to thank the International Textile Alliance for nominating us, and the Art Awards committee, not only for recognizing our efforts, but also for having the vision to create the Hearts Award. Business can be a force for good in the world, and we consider it our duty and privilege to make a constructive impact wherever we can.”
In June 2021, the annual Arts Awards was replaced by a special event called the Hearts Awards. Held in partnership with 12 industry organizations, the event honored companies and individuals that have shown outstanding leadership, empathy and service during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Last year, the Hearts Award was a made a permanent fixture at the Arts Awards, which recognizes prominent manufacturers, retailers, interior designers, product designers and sales representatives. Tickets are $170 for Art members and $200 for non-members. Tables are also available. For more information visit dallasmarketcenter.com/artsawards.
