A Glimpse of Something New... Modern Bedding in the Kantha Stitch

August 11, 2015 1 min read

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 sjones@dignify.ca 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!

Beauty As A Necessity

March 18, 2022 2 min read 1 Comment

With so much pain, brokenness, ugliness in the world, attention to beauty, joy, & wonder is absolutely necessary!

Beauty may not solve problems itself... A stunning photograph will not end famine or war. Banksy's graffiti art does not solve Middle eastern contested-land conflicts.

But, the restoration, hope, and inspiration that come from creativity and beauty are like gas in the tank — fuel for the drivers & changers of the world.

Decoding Return Policies

March 05, 2022 5 min read

We don’t receive a lot of returned items, but it does happen. Of course! There is some degree of risk in shopping online, always.

Stores take different approaches to return policies, sometimes with great sophistication in how it will impact your willingness to purchase. Here's a little peek at what I've learned over the years (as a customer and also as a retailer) about return policies.
