Embrace Our New Collection of Kantha Blankets!

March 26, 2015

A few weeks ago on International Women's Day, our blanket producing partner, Basha, wrote this:

"We celebrate Women's Day every day as we see women emerge from abuse and exploitation and embrace a new life."

In the spirit of embracing a new life, today we've launched the "Embrace Collection". New unique kantha throws and mini kantha blankets are now available at dignify!

Wait, wasn't it only months ago that Uber went public with their IPO, stating that the company "may not achieve profitability"? In fact, revenues surged last year by more than 40% to $11.3 billion, but somehow Uber actually lost $1.8 billion (yes, 1.8 BILLION DOLLARS) in 2018 (reference).
