The gears are slowly creaking back to life over here after another very full and exciting November & December - our best & busiest yet!
2014 was a year for the books: our biggest orders, more exposure, customers who became fans who became champions... All we can say is: THANK YOU!!!
Our dreams continue to grow for 2015. Our producing partner in Bangladesh, BASHA, started 25 new women this month in long-term, dignified employment and we are keen to create work for them & many more like them. Nearing our 1000th blanket purchase, we are excited to be a part of the growth. Here's to 2015!
Feedback from customers, gift givers, & gift recipients has been a great joy! Send yours to email@example.com or #dignifylove.
"This is absolutely beautiful. My wife and I are buying this as a gift to our first baby girl. This is the blanket she will grow up with, and hopefully pass to her children as well."
"Excuse me, while I take five minutes to just be cozy in this incredible #Kanthablanket from @dignifysj (and to finish my coffee of course!) This local #YYC company focuses on ethically sourced goods. I fell in love with this throw immediately! Beautifully hand-stitched by Etti in Bangladesh - just #vibrant, it has an energy of its own! So grateful! check out their products, story and fall in love with your own one of kind!"
Thank you for the oh-so-kind words!
A few stories, as I parse through the complexities of privilege & justice…
We spent time visiting in Dhomina’s relatively large home. The space had been expanded to include a separate cooking space — built upon because of the income she earned making kantha for Basha, for us. Amazing!
I've shared my favourite reads in the past, and today I'm sharing some faves to cook.
This is not a cooking blog (obviously) and I haven't styled any plates or hired any food photographers. I am no expert, but I do cook great food. This assertion is not self-congratulatory! I have little (no) inherent skill and I attribute all of my good cooking to 1) other people's excellent recipes, 2) access to fresh, reliable, & varied food, and 3) time (ie. the time I currently have currently to cook AND the many years of practice).
