Archipelago will be honored with the Gift For Life Industry Achievement Award during the Gifts & Decorative Accessories annual Retailer Excellence Awards on August 19 in New York.
"Archipelago's mission of offering quality products that create comfort and offer care makes them worthy recipients of this honor," said Stuart Teller, chair of the Gift for Life board. "We are proud to present the 2013 Gift For Life Industry Achievement Honor to such an innovative company and its generous founders."
Co-owners Gregg Corzine and David Klass launched Archipelago Botanicals in 1998 with the mission of creating natural fragrance, bath and wellness products to help people relax and take a break from their busy lives. Its product line has grown to include soy candles, scented diffusers, natural-based personal-care items, room sprays and much more. All Archipelago products are handmade in the USA and can be found at more than 5,000 specialty boutiques nationwide.
"We are honored to be a part of the Gift for Life program," said Corzine. "It's amazing to see what a difference a community can make when great minds and kind hearts are all aligned. The result and the community continue to astound me."
