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 email@example.com 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!
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!
I’ve written before about taking the time to think about our spending habits. We are in a particularly unique situation in this current moment; in March 2020, there was a dramatic interruption to our everyday spending and consumption habits!
Some patterns have remained interrupted over the year. Some rhythms are, or will be soon, returning to a closer resemblance to pre-covid. Regardless of our specific situation, interruptions make great opportunities to re-assess! Do my choices reflect my desires, my values, my priorities?
It has been A MINUTE since I've written a book post! It's actually been over a year, which is a shock — I have read some excellent books this year, and I know many of you are avid readers!
In the past, I've shared book lists for: different points-of-view, family dynamics, & books to give as gifts... today's post/list is nothing more than a thoroughly biased list of books I've enjoyed recently & recommend!
