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.
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.
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.
I've joked for many years that I think of parenting as "a slow death to self".
The death to self part (or maybe, less dramatically, a minimizing of self) is obvious : as a parent, your own "needs" & desires shuffle down a little lower on the list of importance when you have a dependent. (With the notable exception of that oxygen mask on an airplane, where I'm told you're supposed to put yours on first!).
The "slow" part is maybe a bit more arguable... When a child arrives in a parent's life, things change pretty quickly! But, in my experience, it has overall been a slow process of giving myself up for others, with acute times of change that are particularly noticeable.
