We're working on something new 'round here!
Our current kantha spreads are fabulous, multi-purpose blankets, but the sizing is dictated by the saris they are made from, so they come up a bit small on most typical beds. As you may know, dignify has been dabbling a bit in custom bedding. Custom is one route, but we wanted to answer the growing demand for bedding with a product that was well-sized, consistent, and available without a lengthy waiting time.
Plus, they are gorgeous!
We received one sample in the spring, and I toted it around for a few weeks, asking friends & family what they thought. After all, the stitch is the same, but the look is certainly a departure. Some people much prefer the colourfulness of our standard kantha, and others LOVED it. We felt confident enough to go forward and get more samples in different sizes.
At this point, we're working out kinks in production and perfecting the sizing. Feedback is also welcome! Comment below or email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your thoughts: on the look, on what size you would like, on the colours we're using, or anything else; I'd love to hear it!
Some favorite summer recipes of mine, for you to try & (hopefully) enjoy. Let me know about your successes, or your own faves!
This is a motto I've been replaying lately in my mind.
For me, one of the *necessities* to sustain energy for this work is to embrace joy, celebration, & fun. But this year, those things have felt pretty elusive. The past 16 months have enriched the depth of my close friendships and have brought maturation & focus to my time; these have been invaluable gifts!
But... I feel like I need to learn all over again how to have fun!
Here are some of the ways I've been thinking about, or practicing, fun lately. I would also love to hear about how you find joy & energy to recharge for everything else that life brings at us!
Basha Boutique is the name of the organization in Bangladesh where all of our beautiful products are made.
Yes, *all* of our products, every item of kantha we sell. This was... ill-advised by our banker. But, a personal working relationship, excellent partnership, and the literal best quality products have kept us together for nearly 9 years! dignify is yoked to Basha, and we have zero regrets.
If you've been around dignify for a while, you've heard plenty about Basha and likely have a good familiarity with how they (and we) operate. But, if not, here is a bit more context!
