Kantha Quilts - The Perfect Wedding Gift


It all began with a wedding gift. Dignify, that is.

Before beginning all of this, I was familiar with the inspiring work started by Basha, and had a personal connection with the gal running its operations. I really wanted to buy one, but, living on a grad student income (read: savings) with our family of 4, I could not quite justify the indulgence.

When my friend, Kathy, announced that she was engaged, I knew that it was the perfect excuse to buy one!

Kathy had been widowed several years before, while pregnant with her third child. Her impending marriage to an amazing man was a glimmer of redemption from the pain & hardship of the preceding years. I loved the parallel there – the communion with women on the other side of the world who were experiencing their own restoration from pain & adversity.

Beyond the deep meaning, it was also incredibly practical – she already had a house full of dishware, small appliances, towels, & picture frames! I knew that the blanket would find some use between the five members of their house, that it would last a lifetime, and that it would be recognized & remembered. 

Nearly 3 years later, it’s still true! The blanket resides on their main couch and is loved daily. [And I have bought many, many more blankets since!]. As the gift-giver, what more could I want?

Forget the place settings. A kantha blanket from dignify is the perfect wedding gift. Not only is it unique – no stainless steel here – it is totally memorable, and will be with the couple forever!

If you want to give a gift that will be useful, artful, lasting, and appreciated, this is it. They can snuggle in for winter movie nights, take it out for a picnic in summer, and use it every month between.
