Embrace Our New Collection of Kantha Blankets!

March 26, 2015 1 min read

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."

Eloquent words and a beautiful portrait of the opportunity for renewal & new beginnings each and every day. I am thankful to be involved in this good work!

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!

It has been A MINUTE since I've written a book post! It's actually been over a year, which is a shock — I have read some excellent books this year, and I know many of you are avid readers!

In the past, I've shared book lists for: different points-of-view, family dynamics, & books to give as gifts... today's post/list is nothing more than a thoroughly biased list of books I've enjoyed recently & recommend!

Hard to Believe... dignify One Year Later

A Wonderful Story

Somehow, impossibly, I travelled around the world one year ago!

I am deeply grateful to have taken a trip to Bangladesh when I did. I was at a stage of my life & business when the adrenaline had long worn off, and I was a getting a bit stuck in a cultural mindset trap: "I don't feel like doing this every day."

More details on that, I'll save for another day (or perhaps for a more intimate conversation!). But, let it suffice to say that my colleagues in Bangladesh do NOT operate from that mindset... it doesn't even factor into the conversation.

Being reminded of this, as well as seeing — in person — the inner workings and impact of the blanket biz on the production side... well, it was deeply regenerative for me.

If I had not visited in January 2020, I don't know when that trip would have taken place! Soooo thankful.

 

Here is one story of a woman artisan I met: Poli.
