My daughter works in an oil field camp, she has travelled the world extensively, she has seen a lot of misogyny in her 29 years on this planet so when I gifted her this blanket she understood the love that went in to it.
I absolutely love the story behind each kantha blanket: hardship finding hope and purpose in creating something new.
There are just so many symbols in each blanket. The little patches as a picture of where our weak places can be made stronger. The blend of cast-off saris creating a gorgeous new creation. The stories of the craftswomen themselves and all they have endured.
I discovered the work of Basha Boutique many years ago and purchased through another seller as a gift for loved ones in times of sadness and adversity as a way to send a hug and message of hope for a beautiful future. The seller I used to shop from closed their doors awhile back but directed clients to Dignify.
I have many friends currently walking through tough times right now and I have been walking through a tough year myself. My mom got me a kantha of my very own to comfort me in the difficult days post-chemo. Likewise I have enjoyed sending these to friends who are struggling in one way or another now as well. I have been blown away by the gorgeous selection of kantha blankets on your website. I'm partial to the silk blend myself as they just look sooo special.
Your shipping is FAST, and the little wrapping and packing details and cards give me confidence in saving money by having you ship right to my intended recipient. I've been able to track each delivery through the USPS so that right before it arrives, I can email or text my friend with a quick explanation of the gift they are about to open. Thank you for being part of this story of resilience and hope for so many.
I am so glad to see you're making new things. I have bought your throws for my family and they all loved them. I have one that stays on the foot of my bed that I use to take a nap. Now your new venture into rugs is great and I hope you have great success with them. Good luck and God Bless.
Thanks for reaching out. Your personal touch is one of the many things that makes your business so special.
Of the blankets I've ordered from you, most have been given away. My parents used them in their care homes. My father just loved his and said it brought him peace. A caregiver came in one time and was thrilled to see a Kantha quilt there as it reminded her of her culture.
I sent several out with a Covid Care Package last spring. Three have gone to grandchildren at their baptism, two went to high school grads this year.
The minis have been baby gifts or for young children.
I can't think of a better gift, because it gives in so many ways. Thanks for your hard work, and this lovely act of service.
I received the blanket that I ordered for my sister for Christmas today! I'm so excited to give it to her. She moved to another state this summer and I miss her so much. I know that she's homesick too, so I'm hoping that having this blanket to curl up under will remind her of me and my family.
Hi, My order arrived and will soon be in a new bride and groom's home. Thank you so much!!! And thanks for the little personal note included in the package...so special!
The vision and the heart of this site is truly inspiring. I am inspired by them.
I LOVE my kantha blankets!! I may have an addiction to them. :) I have two at work that I use at my desk and I sleep with one almost every night.
They are the perfect size and weight. And of course the patterns and colors are gorgeous!! The story behind each one makes them even better.
It's beautiful and colorful, a bright spot for our living room. Our family members like to snuggle under it on the sofa. It's soft and warm.
I think these blankets are unique, very well-made, the craftsmanship is with purpose and I love the story behind the blankets
I have bought several of these blankets which they are wonderful, and I have given them as a grievance blanket, baby blanket, and I just get better blanket.
I love the weight of the blanket! It feels so light, but keeps me warm and cozy! While using it, I can’t help but say a prayer for the hands that made it!
I love everything I've gotten. They are a delight to give to others and keep for myself.
I have bought five blankets I think. I think they are incredibly beautiful and are so comfortable to wrap up in. Add to that the chance to help out women in need, and you just can’t go wrong.
It was beautiful and my parents (who I bought it for) loved it!
Great quality! Stitching is done right. Colors are accurate.
Large throw is so beautiful! Exceeded expectations! Can't wait to buy a baby throw for gift soon!
It's a beautiful blanket, and it has been very well used in the time we have had. Such good quality and for such a good cause :)
It’s heavier than I anticipated [the natural bedding] and the color is more tan than I pictured, but I really love it on my bed. I will also say the material is not very worn in and so that makes it a bit more harsh at first BUT! I know with time and lots of snuggle sessions it will only get more lovely.
I love my wonderful throw (bought as a birthday gift) made from lovely old saris. It is soft and comfy and a great way to cuddle up by the fire. More importantly, it supports such a positive women’s cause, Basha.
Kantha blankets are a perfect special occasion gift - unique, beautiful, and lasting. We've given them for babies and birthdays, anniversaries and graduations, and to celebrate important personal accomplishments. (And we have a few simply because they are art!)
It was a meaningful and special gift, the recipient loved it.
I have purchased every type of kantha and have loved all of them. Even when one had to be exchanged, it was handled promptly. I like the large throws best and I am always checking for something new.
My sister recently moved into my parents home after struggling with depression and health issues. This is an opportunity for her to heal, but it also meant that she left most of her personal belongings behind her, including many of those pieces that help make a home comfortable. I chose to purchase a kantha wrap because my sister has always supported organizations with the same types of mission and I also knew that it would be a piece she could use and cherish. The pattern I selected was easy to recognize as 'hers' - it reminded me so much of her true vibrant personality. She truly loves her kantha blanket.
The stitching is so beautifully hand done and the colors are perfect - exactly what was expected but still more beautiful in-hand. Will definitely consider in the future.
Love my Kanthas! So stylish that they work as decor AND a cozy blanket. They are a great talking point to bring up at risk peoples and ways that we can help.
I love love love my Kantha blankets. They are the best! I even take one on vacation with me!
I'm addicted to these blankets! They are beautiful. Every person I have gifted them to (your baby blankets are my go to baby shower gift :) ) feels the same way.
I have purchased 5 Kantha blankets as gifts in the last 3 months — one for a birthday, one for Christmas and three for baby showers!
I love giving them as gifts! They are beautiful, and people love the story once I explain it to them. I also love the company and love buying gifts that I know help people, are environmentally friendly, and are quality.
Great quality fabric and stitching - amazing colors and it's so soft!
I love the colour of my indigo bedding! The sari's patterns show through the indigo dye just enough that it is unique and interesting while still remaining neutral enough that it helps create a calm space in my bedroom. It's also surprisingly warm!
I love my Kantha for many reasons. It is beautiful, well made and very comfortable but even more dear to me is that as someone who works against sex trafficking locally I love that I can use my purchasing power to have an effect globally on an issue so close to my heart.
I received my Kantha for Christmas from my husband and purchased one for a baby gift for a dear friend
I am thrilled with my throw! The colours are so vivid, it brightens up my house on even the dullest day. I appreciate the weight and warmth of it, too; it's perfect for the cold days that we're experiencing now.
I am addicted to buying them. I have so many but want more! They are a key part of my bedroom decor, and living room too.
Purchased for Christmas and mother's day
Dignify is my automatic gift for babies, for weddings, for Christmas, for “I -need-a-hug”, fir first day of spring, Alberta Famiky Day , for heading to the folk fest, for kid leaving for college, I might be a blanket hoarded ..... I might have a problem but I don’t want a cure.
I live your blankets a lot.
I love them. I have purchased several for myself and also as gifts for family and friends. They are colourful and cheery and comfortable to curl up in. The best part for me is the story behind them and the opportunities they give those less fortunate than me. 😊
It’s stunningly beautiful, soft and cosy and I wrap myself up in it on my sofa every evening once my kids are sleeping. It brings me joy!!
Excellent quality and rich in color. My go to when reading and want some extra warmth.
I love all of my kanthas! My favourite thing is my seven month old son’s mini kantha. I love putting it over him when he snuggles on my chest. It is the closest thing to heaven I’ve ever experienced.
I’ve given Kanthas for birthday and new baby presents. I’ve gotten kantha pillows for a housewarming present and for a birthday present. There is no bad occasion for a kantha!
They are beautifully made, absolutely lovely to look at and practical to use! In addition, I love and support the ethics!
I have a silk blend for myself.....it gets used at home, taken to photo shoots and even to church.
They make amazing gifts!
2 baby showers and 1 wedding
I am very happy with my purchases! The kantha throw takes up little space when folded, but adds a cozy touch and a nice pop of colour to my living room. The kantha bedding is stunning - I love the clean, whimsical look it provides, plus it’s the perfect weight and surprisingly warm; exactly what I needed in my drafty bedroom. The items are well-made and the cloth is high quality. I will definitely purchase more in the future!
I love each and every one of my Kanthas — and all were purchased for me me me. It makes me happy to see the colours and patterns, and that they are made from upcycled saris. I am especially gladdened to know that the purchase of my kanthas has helped some women and their children so far away. Good vibes all around!
