Every time new blankets arrive, it really is a thrill! Pulling them out, one by one (or, if I'm being "helped" by my 2-year old co-worker, several at a time), and seeing the colours, the vibrancy, the unexpected pattern matches, and the sheer beauty of the blankets... it wows me each time.
Mother's Day is soon approaching on May 12th, and a blanket from dignify is an amazing gift for a mom - many of our blankets at Christmas went to moms and mothers-in-law, to very happy results!
Take a look below at some new Bloom blankets, or browse the entire collection of kantha quilts.

My husband was dropping off our parcels recently, and a woman working in our shipper's office said, "I was looking at your site, and I think I might buy some of these blankets this year as gifts; I'm mostly shopping online." Another employee chimed in, "I'm going to do all of my shopping online, too."
That evening, he went with our kids to the mall to pick something up (masked, natch), and as he surveyed the hallways — with some permanently closed stores, some shuttered from lack of employees, etc. — Wayne's thought was, "I think I need to do all my shopping at the mall!"
Recently, dignify received a review on our blankets that addressed the variety of our styles (color/pattern), and the contrast/matching choices that go into our kantha. Let's take a glimpse behind-the-scenes at the number of factors that contribute to these decisions.
How do we choose the fabric? How do we match saris to create the kantha blankets? Why are some combinations bad? Why aren’t there more grey/buttery yellow/navy blue color combos?
I know that many of you have wondered about these questions from time to time, too!
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.
