"We appreciate this designation as a validation of these efforts and a reflection of the commitment to excellence by every member of the Treasure Garden team," Chang said.
The award is determined from nominations made by a committee of Casual Living's editorial and research staff along with input from key retailers of each supplier.
"The companies nominated are ones that best fit the criteria for the award," said Norman Hamilton, publisher of Casual Living. "We look to recognize manufacturers that take their company and the industry as a whole to a new level through creativity, innovation and decisive and bold actions."
