My indigo kantha blanket just arrived and it is beautiful, and soft and comforting. But it is so much more,.. because it comes from a place of strength, made by women with the determination to survive and overcome in the face of adversity. They stitched these blankets as a means to escape their situations and find a better life.
So, my blanket has superpowers. I will hold it and wrap myself in it and feel it’s strength, feel their strength. If the women who stitch these blankets can overcome all they have had to, I, too, can certainly survive whatever lies ahead.
Thank you Dignify, for all you do. And thank you Basha and Nurjahan.
