We're big fans.

July 14, 2017

Anyone who knows us would agree that we're not really fancy people. Most of our belongings are hand-me-downs or bought secondhand. But after much deliberation, for our anniversary, we decided to invest in a new quilt for our bed - an indigo kantha from Dignify. We love the story of redemption behind the object, and we also love the object - beautiful, simple, and well-made. Thanks Shelley and the team @dignifysj for the work you do! We're big fans. - Stephanie Oh, Stephanie, this is so wonderful! Thank you for trusting us with your money and choosing something you love. We're fans, too. Enjoy!

Thank you so much. I received the kantha today. It's simply beautiful!

Soft Blankets!

Hi Shelley, just got my order and I am so so happy with my quilts! What I rec'd was exactly what was represented on your website but they are SOFTER than expected - major plus. I cannot stop looking at the colors and the glorious mix of prints and I love that they were made with such care and connection. Nice work on your socially-conscious biz. - Wynne
