Love the Colors

February 16, 2018

I love the colors!!! It's a great addition for our couch, and we use it all the time while watching TV.

Perfect Size

February 14, 2018

I love my kantha throw, it's the perfect size for a lap blanket or to wrap around my shoulders on chilly days.  The colours and stitching are beautiful.

Special Piece

February 12, 2018

I purchased this as a baby gift for my sister’s new baby girl. What a special piece!
The colors are beautiful and the craftsmanship is impeccable. I’m sure this will not be my only Dignify purchase!

Superpower Blankets

February 12, 2018

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.

- Sam

Ordering More in the Future

February 12, 2018

I really love that the blankets are made of repurposed sari cloth and by women who are at risk.  The blanket that I ordered arrived quickly. It is a beautiful and soft lightweight blanket that is the perfect length for covering up.  I am sure that I will be ordering more blankets in the future.

Hug in a Blanket

February 11, 2018

Love it! It is beautiful and unique: I really liked picking it out on-line (gift card) so I could choose one that’s right for me! The size is perfect for snuggling on the couch with my kiddos. My dear friend bought this for me for Christmas. We live far apart and she said that this is the closest she can get to sending me a hug, considering all of the thought and care that is represented in these blankets. And it’s true! Each time I use it, I think of her and of the woman on the other side of the world who made it. We truly are all connected...thankful for this company and the dignity that it allows so many to experience.

Artwork for Wall

February 11, 2018

This is my second purchase. The colors were gorgeous and just as described.  bought this red and silver silk blanket for my mother's bed, but she wants to put it up on the wall as artwork instead. Her present, her choice, but I love the one I have on my bed.

- Sheri

Obsessed

February 11, 2018

I bought two kantha throws: one for my sister, one for myself (my second one, might I add). When I received them, and saw how beautiful they were, it took all my will power not to keep both.

When I gifted my sister her blanket, she was delighted, loving its bright colours and softness. When I shared where the blanket was made, she eagerly went online to learn more about the woman who stitched hers. Needless to say, we are both obsessed.

- Emily

It is so meaningful to be able to find out more about the women's stories!


Washes Beautifully

February 11, 2018

I have had my kantha blanket for about 2 1/2 years and still love it.  I use it on the bottom side of my couch.  I love the look, the colours, the feel and all the work your wonderful ladies have put into it. And washes beautifully.  I appreciate every inch of it.  Someday I will treat myself to another one.  Thank you so very much for these amazing creations and always enjoy your blog and the effort of your life.

- Deb

So Meaningful

February 10, 2018

I have purchased about 5 blankets now and absolutely love them. Most of them I have given away as gifts.  I love that I can purchase a gift that is supporting something so meaningful and goes far beyond the blanket itself.

- Kelly

Gifts with a Purpose

February 10, 2018

Absolutely the most amazing and special gift to give or receive. We love our kanthas so much and the purpose they serve. If we had more disposal income, i would buy them for gifts for everyone I know.

- Elsbeth

 


It is Beautiful

February 10, 2018

My sister's husband of 50 years passed away and I thought to send flowers, but saw bright flower design and sent throw direct to Her. Her comment "It is beautiful!".

What an incredibly thoughtful and long lasting gift!

Great on Airplane

February 10, 2018

My daughter, who is 22 and a college student in Missouri - where weather changes like the wind - also loves my Kantha's.  I found one in her school colors, of primarily red and black, so gifted it to her.  She LOVES it.  She even carried it with her home on the airplane over Christmas!

- Debbie

Love them on the airplane! Perfect weight!

Looking at them makes me happy

February 10, 2018

I have all three sizes of Kantha's.  I love fabric, color and texture, so I always look to see if there is something I can't live without.  The most recent one I purchased is different from so many others I see.  I love the patterns and the colors.  I live in the Bay Area of California, where the days begin cool, and then warm up.  The weight of the Kantha is perfect for me.  I'm never sad to see them puddled up wherever they might land, as looking at them makes me happy.

My oldest daughter is matchy matchy - so she purchased an all natural blanket in muslin color.  She is dissapointed that it is stiffer and not as soft as mine are.  I've told her, she really needs the dye and the age of the traditional saris to get that texture and weight.  Hopefully she'll age out of her matchy state, and realize the gift that the reworked Kantha's bring.  You and your team do a terrific job!  They always arrive promptly.  I've never had any issues.

I feel so good about supporting this work!

Helping a Women Far Away

February 09, 2018

The love the blankets because they are so beautiful & soft but. Love even more the concept behind them. I feel (hope) I'm helping a woman far away. It's a small gesture on my part.

Pieces of Art

February 09, 2018

They are beautiful, they are life affirming,they are art pieces and pieces of lives, they comfort, they calm, they give to the earth, to the maker and the receiver and the gifter. They make a difference, an impact; impart joy and fulfillment. They are love! Thank you!

- Sue


Soft and Well Made

February 09, 2018

I've purchased four kantha blankets so far.  Two are small sized.  I love them all! The photos online are accurate.  The blankets are soft and well made.  The colors are perfect.  I feel good that my purchases help other women.  I've shared the website with friends.  Keep up the great work.   Thanks

- Dee

Love

February 09, 2018

I love my throw. It's one of my most favourite things that I own.

So Happy

February 09, 2018

My sister was so happy when she received it and it was a beautiful moment.

- Catherine


I will definitely be back

February 09, 2018

Love the idea of how these quilts are made and wanted to see the product myself so I ordered one.  Super happy with the quilt I received. Plenty of photos to see what you are getting but it doesn’t convey  how buttery soft the fabric is.  Be sure to closely inspect the photos to see the patching so you are content with what you order.  I am so pleased with the product and the good of supporting this type of project that I have told many friends about the site and am just waiting for an excuse to buy one of the small ones for a baby gift.  They are lovely and I highly recommend.  My 6 foot 3 husband is always stealing mine to cover up on the couch.  Beautiful colours and interesting patterns.  I will definitely be back.  Thank you!

- Debbie

Great Gift

February 08, 2018

It's always special to receive one of these beautiful blankets.. so why not send it as a gift for a baby!!??

- Myra

We agree!

Baby Present

February 08, 2018

Beautiful colors, nice weight, great craftsmanship. I would definitely buy another from Dignify again. (Plus I love the cause.)

Shopping With a Conscience

February 08, 2018

I recently purchased an Indigo Throw and when it arrived it was even more beautiful than I had expected. I love to support this amazing company! I also purchased a tree skirt and got so many compliments on it this year! Of course, shortly after I put it out my boys managed to smash an ball filled with glitter and water off the tree. It washed up perfectly!

- Kim

Happy to hear it washed up well - a key with kids in the house!

Perfect blanket for chilly nights

February 08, 2018

I particularly love my Indigo Kantha bedspread. It's the perfect extra blanket on these chilly winter nights!

Unique, soft and great story

February 08, 2018

I love them all (I have...several). I love their uniqueness, their softness, and especially their story. It is so wonderful to know that these items, which bring me joy and a smile when I see and use them, are also the means by which women are empowered.

- Tina


Great impact!

February 08, 2018

I love knowing that my gift also contributed to the livelihoods of women across the globe!

- Dani

Even my dog has her own kantha!

February 08, 2018

I love all of my Kantha items!!  I have them in two homes and have gifted a number of quilts to others as well.  I love layering them for special looks.  I must admit, that one of our dogs has her own special Kantha quilt.  Service from "Dignify" is always wonderful, and I think it is so important to purchase from companies that give back, like "Dignify."  Thanks!

- Suzi

Thanks for sharing, Suzi. And dogs are part of the family too, so their own kantha just makes sense! 

Fuzzy feelings with the blanket

February 08, 2018

I love the softness of my cotton kantha blanket! It’s like the comfy familiarity of old t-shirts. The blanket imparts more fuzzy feelings knowing it was handmade by a woman building a better life. The color combinations of the different fabrics make me happy, too.

- Schenley


Each one is a treasure

February 08, 2018

Love these blankets! I have a bit of an addiction and now have 4 plus have given 3 as gifts.They are wonderful and the story behind them makes each one a treasure. Thank you for supporting women!

- Tracey

How things are made is important to me

February 08, 2018

People always love receiving a kantha mini for their new baby. We love giving something unique and useful and beautiful; the recipients appreciate those things as well. And how things are made (and by whom, and for what kinds of wages) is becoming increasingly important to me. I love that these blankets are the product of meaningful, fairly-paid work for women who need it.

- Cheryl

Beautiful, durable and comfortable

February 08, 2018

The kantha throw is beautiful, durable, and comfortable. I had given it as a gift, and my friend LOVES it! She leaves it on her bed and bundled up with it each night. It’s more than just stylish!

- Nathan


Always a good excuse for a kantha

February 08, 2018

I absolutely adore our kanthas—yes, plural! I bought one a couple years ago for myself and got a friend a throw for a going away party for a coworker to let her know we’re with her and whenever she misses us, she can wrap herself in it and feel our love, no matter where she is. Then, this year, during the anniversary sale, I bought four—two for new babies, one for me, and one for our gift closet—to give to someone at some point. There’s always a good excuse for a kantha. My father is in his last chapter of his life and the wrap has been such a comfort through this hard time.

- Michelle

Love it all

February 08, 2018

I love everything about my kantha blanket: its story, its quality and its beauty!

- Penny

Blankets that mean more

February 08, 2018

I'm in love with my nine (yikes!) throws. I rotate them in the house, and store them rolled up in a basket in the living room. Each one represents triumph for the woman who stitched it, which makes them even more beautiful to me.

- Peggy

Love it, Peggy! Love the connection from the blanket to the beautiful artisans who made them!


Worthy Work

February 08, 2018

I like the juxtaposition of different patterns and prints! I love the colorfulness , they make me happy to gift to someone and they see it for what it is, ART! Most of all I like that it is, in whatever degree,  helping women at a time of life where they need to trust there is help! God bless you for that and all it entails. Their work is worthy!

- Sue

Thanks, Sue! They are unique pieces of art made by women who matter!

Thrilled!

February 08, 2018

I have now purchased 3 standard sized and 1 large kantha quilt, plus 2 table runners.

I'm thrilled with all of them!

- Loren

Beautiful Quality

February 08, 2018

Beautiful quality, lovely colours, highly recommend!

- Judy

Thanks, Judy!


Lovely

February 08, 2018

The kantha I fell in love with was already sold by the time I got around to ordering so I chose another that is lovely though not my first choice.  That will teach me not to procrastinate!

- Jenny

Happens to the best of us, but bet you won't let it happen again! :)

Lovely Colors, Soft Drape

February 08, 2018

This piece was made with obvious care and skill. It's the perfect size and weight for curling up with a good book, or for throwing over your shoulders to run out for the mail. Lovely colors, and a soft drape. Looking forward to buying another!

- Audrey

"Go To" Blanket

February 08, 2018

It's my "go to" blanket on the couch!! Perfect size and weight.  Love the colors.

- Krista

I agree!


Bring Me Such Joy

February 08, 2018

They bring me such joy. They are beautiful, soft, recycled and provide dignity and a fair wage to women. What could be more perfect? I believe I now have one in every room of my home and they are my go to gift for baby showers :) There are other places that sell kantha blankets, but I know when I buy for Dignify the artists that make these incredible blankets are being paid a fair wage for their products.

A Gift with Purpose and Meaning

February 08, 2018

I love my kantha throw.  This past Christmas, I needed nor wanted anything under the tree.  I came across dignify online and began reading about what you do and how these handmade items make a difference to the lives of these women.  I told my husband right then I knew what I wanted, a gift with purpose and meaning.  I chose Silence, as a survivor of sexual assault, it spoke to me.  On Christmas morning I had a chance to finally hold it in my hands, and share the story behind my kantha throw.  I hope that the woman who made my throw knows what a strong, brave woman she is, I’ll be purchasing more in the future.

- Heather

Thanks for sharing, Heather. That is our hope for the artisans as well!

Fine Workmanship

February 08, 2018

I have now purchased 3 kantha throws and the natural bedcover. I love them all. I love the fine workmanship, the designs and the heart behind each one. They are very soft and quite warm. I will certainly be back for more.

- Candi


Pictures don't do it justice

February 08, 2018

I purchased a silk blend kantha throw and the pictures of the blankets don't do them justice. They are simply beautiful! I am so pleased with my purchase.

- Sonserese

Put a smile on your face

February 08, 2018

I have purchased several of the kantha blankets, both as gifts and for myself. I've not been disappointed with any of them and neither have the recipients. They're very cozy and the patterns are unique, and to know that you're helping someone at the same time, makes them even more special! I think they put a smile on your face! Thank you to the girls that make them and to you Shelley for all you do!

- Carla

Thanks, Carla!

Shop with Integrity

February 08, 2018

I have loved every throw that I have purchased for myself (I now have 5 for my house and there is always someone wrapped up in one) and as gifts.  The gifts have all been well recieved and loved as well. Your ethics/company have also changed my thought process on how I shop. I try to "buy" with integrity and dual purpose now.  And when I see my throws, they just make me smile. Thank you.
