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!
Just got my "wreath" blanket this week, and as per usual, I'm loving it! The red is very festive and it is a welcome addition to my ever growing collection! Thank you again and again!
Thank you for the quick delivery! It has been the perfect companion this morning!
Many thanks for your thoughtful posts and all your compassionate work.
THANK YOU SO MUCH - I absolutely love this quilt and can’t wait to share about it and Dignify.
Thanks for your email and for being part of making these lovely blankets!
Look who stole my first kantha. Guess I’ll have to get another!
I just wanted to say that I so enjoy reading your newsletters each Saturday morning. I am a no spam person and have essentially unsubscribed from all mailing lists. Except yours.
Also, I am a repeat customer. New kantha day is the best day. My husband and I are currently becoming recertified for foster parenting, as the youngest three of our seven children were adopted through foster care, and one of the first things I purchased was a mini kantha. Because, I mean, what else do you need?
We will be welcoming a preschool, or younger, aged little boy into our home and obviously only a kantha will do for his special blanket. We’re not sure how long each boy will stay, maybe for always or maybe a day, but you better believe they will all have a very special kantha-lovey.
And by the way, the blanket I chose is perfect. I opened the package and gasped. It’s exactly what I wanted.

My kantha arrived today under gray skies and chilly temps in anticipation of snow (It’s April, right?!)
My “silence” kantha was anything but… it was a shout of sunshine that filled my room with rays of color… thank you.
I received my mini blanket today .... AWESOME! is all I can say. Your product never disappoints.
Thank you for your longtime support, Geri! I'm delighted we have given you something to come back for again & again!
Oh, you. Thank you, Barb!!
Thank you so very much for everything! I’ve really been enjoying your emails. You have an obvious gift for writing and for running your business. I love how you are using your gifts!!!
Thank you for the kind words, Parla! We appreciate the encouragement!
Thank you so much for the beautiful Basha blankets!! They came much quicker than I expected, so thank you!
Well, what can I say? I have developed quite a collection of quilts in the last few months, and have loved each of them. But my latest one "Pick" is just so bright and comforting. It looked like a black background in the photo, but it's navy and it's just so lovely! Thank you once I again for my newest addition!
So happy to hear your new throw is a welcomed addition to your collection! Thank you so much!
Can't wait to sit in front of my crackling fireplace with my newest addition to my collection! "Fireplace holiday". I chuckled when I opened it because as I've said before, the similarity with my other blankets is quite amazing . The colours and the sunflower -ish flowers are just so lovely! Thanks so much!Hmmm...now I'm thinking there needs to be a "sunflower " named one.
The sunflowers are so lovely! Always makes a good addition to any collection!! Glad you are enjoying it.
Just a quick note to tell I got the blanket today! Very lovely! I appreciate your quick attention to my order! Thank you for the work you do on behalf of women.
I ended up ordering the indigo quilt and i absolutely love it!
I get so many complements and I get to share Dignify with my friends.
The Indigo quilt brightens my bedroom and is the perfect blanket for all seasons.
In the summer, it was the only one i used, now winter, it is perfect for snuggling up with around the house or layering on the bed. It's become my favorite blanket.
Thank you! :)
I do believe that these, indeed, are "magical blankets" for the ladies making them... such simple yet hard work to bring joy to the people who are able to buy them, and such joy to the ladies in being able to make an impact on their own lives.
I only wish I could buy more....have to quit looking at the wonderful colours! my four that I have bought make me feel like I am, in a small way, helping women make a better life for themselves.
The [mini] blanket was a hit!!!! Everyone loved it; especially the mom to be ;)
Passed your information along - hope that alright.
Thanks, Mili! We welcome all passing along of information... ;)
Thank you so much for all the time you put into helping me. Ill be sure to spread the word!
My shipment arrived....I couldn't be happier! The throws are packaged so nicely with the paper and string, but the throws themselves are just beautiful.
Must return to hunt down another for myself now!
Love hearing you were happy - from the packaging to the throws!
I just received my custom quilt and it definitely was worth the wait. It is absolutely stunning. The ladies that create these quilts are very talented in what they do.
Hello! I came home for lunch to see that my package arrived and I was delighted to see that both blankets that I ordered were actually in the same package. I LOVE them both! Thank you so much.
Fabulous! Happy to hear that!
I just love my blanket! At first I thought that the blanket was too narrow, but now I feel like it's just the perfect dimensions! I use it all the time.
Thanks for sharing, Deb! The dimensions of our throws are based on the sari cloth itself, and yes, they are a unique size, narrower than most throws. We find it's the perfect size for many, many uses, and I'm glad you've loved yours, too!
Hello my dignified friend,
Just received my "sunburn" .......blanket! Love it! Love it! Love it!
As I said before, my purchases all have a common colour theme! How beauteous my collection is becoming!
Thank you for such great combinations!
Lisa - an obsessed repeat customer! 😆
We love a good kantha obsession... enjoy it, Lisa!
Thank You ❤️
I just had to tell you how great your service is. I was delighted to receive my order within the week 😊 This was my third purchase and I have yet to be anything but delighted with each of them. These throws might be my favourite gift to give, as I love to see the expressions on the lucky recipient. Today we are celebrating my Mom's 78th birthday and I am excited to give her this special gift. Thank you so much for the great products and wonderful service.
The throw did arrive today and it is just beautiful!
I am thrilled with my purchase. Thank you for taking the time to care. Truly.
Thank you so much, Karen! We do care, and so glad that you are pleased.
A belated thank you for sending my new quilt so promptly — it is perfect in our living room!
Thank you for sharing with us, Lyn! It looks gorgeous with your decor!
Just opened up my small box and pulled out a beautiful blanket! "Break" to start my summer break. 😊
It surprisingly goes very well with my bonus room colours! Much more than anticipated.
Thanks so much!
Can't wait to find the next one that calls for me ! 😉
A friend of mine found [the previously missing] box with throws.
They are beautiful!!!
I will be ordering more!
It fits perfectly and looks beautiful. I also purchased a queen size one that I will be giving to my boyfriend for Christmas. I am very pleased with all the quilts and throws that I have purchased by Dignify.
Looking forward to shopping again soon!
Yesss! That's great news, Debi. I'm so glad you are loving your indigo quilt!!
Yay! Thanks for sharing this, Michele; the colors are perfect!!
I LOVE my indigo quilt I received! Absolutely beautiful. I can't wait to make another purchase!
I got my indigo quilt earlier this week. I LOVE IT! Thank you! It is definitely a treasured piece. I love all the new throws you all came out with... definitely need another blanket for another room in the house soon!
- Thanks, Brittney!! What fabulous feedback! We love our indigo bedding, too. Enjoy!
I love the mini I chose, it’s perfect for my little niece. We have two other blankets, and they are in constant movement around our house, they are everyone’s favourites!
Yay! Love hearing about our kantha throws in use, being enjoyed. Thanks, Margot!
It's taken me way too long to thank you for the amazing custom [twin] blankets. We love them! I promise I'll get a picture to you soon. I really appreciate all of the support that you and Laura provided.
You have created such an amazing company and we are so blessed to have a house filled with your blankets!
Yay!! So glad that your home is full of kantha goodness. Thanks for sharing with us, Katie!
Hi Shelley, Just wanted to let you know I received the blanket and it's great as always! Very pretty! Thanks very much and I look forward to doing business with you again! Sincerely, Carla
- Thank you so much, Carla!! Always so encouraging to hear great feedback.
"I first saw dignify on Pinterest and have kept coming back to it in my thoughts. I am getting married in September and wanted to give meaningful gifts to my bridesmaids who have given so much of their time, effort, and MONEY on celebrating me! (And what a silly thing to celebrate- a wedding- not the biggest accomplishment in my eyes! ;) )
Anyway, I love the idea behind the product and I have to say I am SO impressed with what I have been reading since joining the mailing list. I love that your company wants to talk about sustainable gifts and spending money on quality products and not having that dreaded buyer's remorse! I even love the way the emails/blogs are written- very easy to read and you can hear the passion behind every word.
I'm so impressed and cannot wait to receive these blankets- I know my bridesmaids are going to adore them!"
The wedding was perfect and my bridesmaids *LOVED* the blankets. My sister even showed me she was using hers last night when we were face timing! All in all a fantastic gift for some truly fantastic ladies. Thanks again for everything that you do! Your work inspires me!"
- Thank you SO much, Becky, for your kindest words and support of dignify! Even better, the pleasure of your gals loving their kantha throws. Yay!!
