Shaw Rugs was presented the 15th ARTS Award for the Home Textiles category. The award is given yearly by the Accessories Resource Team (ART) and the Dallas Market Center at a gala event.

The ARTS Awards program, held during the Dallas January Super Market Week each year, is the only international program recognizing excellence in retailing, manufacturing, product design and sales representation of decorative home accessories. Through this program, retailers, manufacturers and sales representatives are recognized by their peers for excellence in the development of product, retail merchandising and sales representation of decorative home accessories.

Finalist companies and individuals are required to submit a presentation for judging during November by a panel of five industry related judges. Ernst & Young, the official accounting firm of the ARTS Awards, was responsible for vote tabulation.

Shaw Rugs received the ARTS Awards trophy and is entitled to use the winner logo in all printed material.
