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!
This week, I posted on my personal Facebook page about Amazon's Prime Day, with some stats that bothered me.
A thoughtful friend commented with honesty,
"Could you share some more of your insights about Amazon. I don’t disagree that their model is terrible but I also haven’t been convinced enough to forgo the crazy convenience of it.
Help convince me!"
Here is the response I posted.

Hi, love the items and have purchased several.
Question: last week I had put a classic throw in my cart and then shopped for another and placed in my cart as well and when I went to complete the purchase, they were marked as sold and unavailable.
How does this work? Was extremely disappointed!
I completely understand — what a disappointment! Let's talk more about this...

Reflections from my experience visiting a Brothel in Bangladesh
As impossible as it is for me to believe now, earlier in 2020 I flew around the world. The primary objective was to visit Bangladesh and see, in person, the life-changing work in which dignify has had the privilege to participate over these past 8 years.
