New Kantha Blankets! The Heroes Collection

April 18, 2015 1 min read

I love 31Bits current Mother's Day campaign: it's all about Moms being superheroes.

My favourite superhero is Batman (long before Christopher Nolan's movies, although I love those, too). I've always liked his character because he is an ordinary man who does extraordinary things. Isn't that what moms are, as well? Using tools, gadgets, help (where's my Alfred, btw?), sometimes sneakiness, and a lot of moxie to accomplish greatness; is there a better description of a mom?

We've loaded dignify with new kantha throws, large kantha spreads, silk blend kantha throws, more minis, and even a bit of new jewellery. It's like an explosion of prints & colours over here! Shop for a mom, a friend, or for yourself. Each purchase makes a real-world impact on a woman's life in Bangladesh or around the world, making YOU the hero of the day.

PS - Have you seen our Meaningful Gift Guide yet? Over 100 more ideas from art to lessons to trips to books you can give your mom this year. You know, as long as she already has a blanket ;)

Growing Up Together

When I was in Bangladesh, we visited a village outside of Jashore (a city in which Basha has a production centre, where I visited a brothel) to call on some homes of women who sew blankets for Basha

We spent time visiting in Dhomina’s relatively large home. The space had been expanded to include a separate cooking space — built upon because of the income she earned making kantha for Basha, for us. Amazing!

How I Learned to Be A Good Cook (With 3 Fail-safe, Versatile Dinner Recipes)

May 29, 2020 7 min read 2 Comments

I've shared my favourite reads in the past, and today I'm sharing some faves to cook.

This is not a cooking blog (obviously) and I haven't styled any plates or hired any food photographers. I am no expert, but I do cook great food. This assertion is not self-congratulatory! I have little (no) inherent skill and I attribute all of my good cooking to 1) other people's excellent recipes, 2) access to fresh, reliable, & varied food, and 3) time (ie. the time I currently have currently to cook AND the many years of practice).
