About dignify
kantha_quilts

dignify helps women shop for what they will both love and feel great about buying; that which promotes dignity, empowers humanity, & champions good.

We sell premium quality, ethically made, fair trade kantha quilts. Call them whatever you want – kantha blankets, sari throws, “Indian blankets”, vintage sari kantha – all you need to know is:

  • They are hand-stitched in Bangladesh from six layers of reclaimed sari cloth.
  • The women who make them were previously living on the street, or working in sex work (often these go hand in hand), or in a vulnerable situation at risk of such.

It all began with a wedding gift.

 

 

 

Thousands of blankets later. . .

 

 

We are confident that our kantha quilts are the BEST quality of kantha blankets on the market, made in exceptional working conditions.


Our kantha throws are made with the highest standards of quality: the cloth is thick & supple, the hand-stitching is straight & consistent, the edges are finished & clean. In addition, the care & dignity paid to the artisan women is unmatched, exceeding fair trade standards.
