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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
The threat of technology to our humanness is no new fear (hello, Blade Runner! …actually: goodbye, you are a super boring movie 😆). But, there seems to be an acute crisis of our current cultural moment, as we relate to technology.
Here is just a fraction of writings from the past month addressing this:
With so much pain, brokenness, ugliness in the world, attention to beauty, joy, & wonder is absolutely necessary!
Beauty may not solve problems itself... A stunning photograph will not end famine or war. Banksy's graffiti art does not solve Middle eastern contested-land conflicts.
But, the restoration, hope, and inspiration that come from creativity and beauty are like gas in the tank — fuel for the drivers & changers of the world.
We don’t receive a lot of returned items, but it does happen. Of course! There is some degree of risk in shopping online, always.
Stores take different approaches to return policies, sometimes with great sophistication in how it will impact your willingness to purchase. Here's a little peek at what I've learned over the years (as a customer and also as a retailer) about return policies.
