Hand-dyed Indigo Kantha Quilts & Throw Blankets | dignify

Natural Indigo Dyed Kantha Quilts

Our indigo quilts are beautiful, simple, and rich in story. If you love the look of the kantha stitch, but want something more muted, indigo kantha are a perfect choice.
  • "Kantha" quilts are six layers of sari cloth, hand-stitched together by women in Bangladesh using a traditional kantha stitch.
  • All six layers are repurposed vintage sari cloth with varying patterns. The outer two layers of our indigo kantha have been dyed using the remarkable natural indigo dye process. Learn more about indigo >
  • All stitching is in white thread. The patterns (visible through the indigo dye) do vary, as each piece of dyed cloth is unique. 
  • Machine washable! Recommended: cold wash & flat or hang dry, or tumble on low. Indigo is colorfast.
  • Dimensions: Throw: 40" x 80" (100 x 200 cm), Large Throw: 80" x 80" (200 x 200 cm)
  • These throws have been hand-crafted in Bangladesh by women who were previously trafficked into or otherwise engaged in formal or floating sex work (or at risk). Now, they are employed in work that brings dignity & livelihood. Read more...

We're big fans.

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!

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
