Thanks-giving in January

January 15, 2015 2 min read

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 contact@dignify.ca or #dignifylove.

"I put a Kantha blanket on my Christmas list this year, but then I couldn't resist buying these two -- one for each of my sisters. What a joy it's been purchasing these!"

"Just want to say that I LOVE the Kantha throws, and the women on my Christmas list are going to love them too!"

"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!

Learning to Have Fun Again in 2021

"More Fun in 2021"


This is a motto I've been replaying lately in my mind.

For me, one of the *necessities* to sustain energy for this work is to embrace joy, celebration, & fun. But this year, those things have felt pretty elusive. The past 16 months have enriched the depth of my close friendships and have brought maturation & focus to my time; these have been invaluable gifts!

But... I feel like I need to learn all over again how to have fun!

Here are some of the ways I've been thinking about, or practicing, fun lately. I would also love to hear about how you find joy & energy to recharge for everything else that life brings at us!

10 Years of Basha

May 07, 2021 3 min read 1 Comment

Basha Boutique is the name of the organization in Bangladesh where all of our beautiful products are made.

Yes, *all* of our products, every item of kantha we sell. This was... ill-advised by our banker. But, a personal working relationship, excellent partnership, and the literal best quality products have kept us together for nearly 9 years! dignify is yoked to Basha, and we have zero regrets.

If you've been around dignify for a while, you've heard plenty about Basha and likely have a good familiarity with how they (and we) operate. But, if not, here is a bit more context!
