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.
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.
Thanks for sharing, Heather. That is our hope for the artisans as well!
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.
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.
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!
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.
I thought it would be narrow, but it perfectly wraps around me. It is comforting in the most easy way, and warms so that I can turn the heat down. It is peace.
The kantha throws and the bedspread are my favourite items in my home. They are beautiful and unique. The only thing that makes these blankets look better is if you’re holding a cup of coffee while wrapped up in them.
I have also found that between the kantha throw, the minis and the table runners I always have a gift ready for baby showers, bridal showers and some Christmas presents too!
The kantha minis are the perfect baby blanket because they are light weight and they breathe yet they still provide warmth.
I love my kantha throw! The vibrant colours, mixed patterns, and patches all make me smile, the size is the perfect wrap around, and it's also a great conversation piece that I know is helping to improve lives. I truly love everything about my blanket, and the work of dignify and basha! Thank you!!
I bought 3 mini blankets, one for each of my two daughters who are in university and I thought they would be a great lap blanket while they were studying. I also purchased one for my mother in law to use while watching tv or reading a book. My one daughter went to YWAM Australia a few years ago and one of the focuses was on girls in the sex trafficking and she even wrote a song about it while there. I knew she would especially appreciate the blanket!
What great ideas to use the mini kanthas for!
I keep mine at the office for when it gets chilly. It's the most beautiful thing in my cubicle!
The patterns are amazing and speak to me. As far as usefulness, it is light weight but no air gets through. Keeps you very comfy and holds your body heat. Just about an hour ago, I was trying to convince myself I needed another. The "fair trade PLUS" factor is very meaningful to me. Thank you.
My kantha throw is absolutely gorgeous. It is also the perfect weight for providing comfort.
The kantha blankets are so beautiful and I (and the girls I purchased them for) loved that it was one of a kind. Such a great and unique gift to give and is so personal as well to see the maker of the blanket’s name stitched on one of the corners. It’s a constant reminder to pray for her. LOVE these blankets!
I love the craftsmanship and details. These blankets are beautiful! They also are incredibly warm. I was worried the bedding would be too thin but it's perfect!
I absolutely love everything about these blankets. From the mission, to the appearance, the soft subtle texture of the cloth,.....simply fantastic.
I absolutely love all my blankets and get so many compliments on them. They are used many times throughout each day. The kids like making forts with them and I love wrapping them around my shoulders to keep warm. I love the weight of them and the vibrant colours, they make me feel happy.
I'm always checking the website because I'd love more of them;) For now I'll just keep promoting your business though...thanks so much!
Also, I have to say the quality of the blanket is very good in comparison to some I've seen.
Thanks, Leanne! We appreciate your support and sharing about dignify. Sounds like they are well loved in your home!
I love my Kantha blankets! I carry one of my favorites back and forth between work and home. It is the perfect size for me to use at my desk and sitting on the couch.
I agree....so many uses for the size of the blanket!
Best gift to have on hand for baby births this year!
Great idea! The kantha minis make amazing baby gifts!
Got the package, that was super fast! Thanks so much! The blankets are beautiful and the materials are great!!
Thanks, Julie! Enjoy!!
Oh, you. Thank you, Barb!!
@snoozemac: 5 years of dignify! I'm so proud of the work Shelley has done to help bring dignity to the women in Bangladesh that make these beautiful Kantha throws.
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.
Keep doing the good that you are doing. You are helping women to rise to levels they never expected, and providing smiles/comfort/beauty to others. You have found the perfect balance!
Thank you, Peggy! We love being a part of something that promotes dignify, empowers humanity and champions good all at the same time!
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!
