Thanks-giving in January

January 15, 2015

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!

How Do You Prioritize Travel With Kids? (And Why It's Worth It)

September 07, 2019

[Emily Teo Guest Post]

I’m sitting at a coffee kiosk at the Jardim de Estrela in Lisbon, Portugal as I write this. I’m nibbling on a pasteis de nata, a traditional custard tart pastry; my children are playing a few yards away at a giant climbing structure; I hear my son speak in French to some other children, presumably from France. My family and I are on a month-long summer vacation, travelling around Portugal. We started in Porto, then flew to Sao Miguel in the Azores, and now settled in Lisbon.

Writing A New Story for Our Family [Author Clothing Guest Post]

August 16, 2019


Six years ago, my family unknowingly set ourselves on a journey toward starting a children’s clothing company.

It didn’t start with a business plan, it started with a single choice — a simple “no”.

On April 25th, 2013, the four of us — me, my husband, & our two daughters — were sitting together at the table, eating lunch. The news was on, which, in hindsight, was really unusual; we are not typically TV watchers, especially during a mealtime. I don't remember why the TV was on, but I do remember getting out of my chair, picking up my daughter, and walking closer to the television.

Behind the Scenes of dignify

I received a big shipment of blankets a few weeks ago, and on Instagram I posted this photo of me with the pallet of 16 large boxes towering over me.

Subsequently, I received several DM questions about when the new blankets would be added to the site. The answer is not now but also always — both are true!

This seemed like a good time to give you all a tour into our dignify back room to explain more of how we make this colorful business work.
