I love both blankets I received. So soft and snuggly. There was an "off" odor in both but after washing with mild detergent and a few "deodorizing balls" (from downey), and letting them air dry, there were just fine.
Its my favorite blanket, I love the Dignify story for many reasons (the beautiful stories of redemption). I love sharing about the blanket and your site with friends. I know one of my friends (with more spare cash than me)...is addicted to buying your blankets! :-) I have "Kantha Blanket" on all my wish lists (i.e. Christmas, Birthday), but I'm in a house full of 5 boys who don't get/understand just how special these blankets are (yet).
We use it as a throw on our living room couch.
I love the fact that each item is unique and made by hand; even the colors of the stitching are unpredictable and a reminder of the woman making the quilt.
I love the weight and softness of the material. It is perfect for cuddling up under and reading a book or watching a movie. I have not used the baby swaddle yet -but know if will be great too.
The colors and patterns are beautiful and I love the message behind the blankets as well!
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.
I am in LOVE with these mini Kantha blankets!!! The colors, patterns, and soft textures are to die for!!! About to order another one:)
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
It is so meaningful to be able to find out more about the women's stories!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
Love them on the airplane! Perfect weight!
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.
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.
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!
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
I love my throw. It's one of my most favourite things that I own.
My sister was so happy when she received it and it was a beautiful moment.
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!
It's always special to receive one of these beautiful blankets.. so why not send it as a gift for a baby!!??
Beautiful colors, nice weight, great craftsmanship. I would definitely buy another from Dignify again. (Plus I love the cause.)
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!
Happy to hear it washed up well - a key with kids in the house!
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.
I love knowing that my gift also contributed to the livelihoods of women across the globe!
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!
Thanks for sharing, Suzi. And dogs are part of the family too, so their own kantha just makes sense!
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
I love everything about my kantha blanket: its story, its quality and its beauty!
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.
Love it, Peggy! Love the connection from the blanket to the beautiful artisans who made them!
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!
Thanks, Sue! They are unique pieces of art made by women who matter!
I have now purchased 3 standard sized and 1 large kantha quilt, plus 2 table runners.
I'm thrilled with all of them!
Beautiful quality, lovely colours, highly recommend!
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!
Happens to the best of us, but bet you won't let it happen again! :)
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!
It's my "go to" blanket on the couch!! Perfect size and weight. Love the colors.
