dignify's growth continues to surprise and delight me, adding new angles, new pressures, new gifts & thanksgiving, and generally more fullness to life. Our shelves, however, are increasingly empty from sales of blankets & other accessories heading far & wide across the continent!
We've added a handful of new kantha throws and 15 new kantha minis to the shop! More spreads, silk blend throws, and additional cotton throws will be added in June. Be sure to add your email to our mailing list to always keep up with new shipments and additions to our online store.

Help convince me!"
Here is the response I posted.
