From Our Community
"I am so thrilled with my new Basha Kantha blanket! It is so soft and warm and has pride of place on my bed. I love that Aleya's name is on the corner and I have had the opportunity to support her work with this purchase."
"I'm loving the Gardener's Brush because it means I can scrub root veggies like carrots and potatoes, and not peel them. The brush gets off the dirty and more calloused areas, and then they are good to go. Massive time and waste saver!"
"The necklace’s fine chains of blush coloured seed pearls make it really beautiful and give it a unique look. Will brighten any outfit. Very classy and elegant!"

So when I returned to Australia, I wanted my lifestyle not to contribute to the problem but be part of the solution. One step in the right direction was shopping in alignment with my values.
And so the concept of for Dignity began...
