Tell me you are Desi without telling me you are Desi...

I have noticed many Gujarati people have an obsession with these "Jada blankets". My parents even took them to India. I don't know why, but some of us get cold frequently, so we like these thick blankets.⁠

After getting married, I was at a family wedding and noticed during the Mosaalu vidhi these giant "Dhaabadaa"(blankets) coming out and being given to people as part of the "Vehchan"(gifting) and I was a little surprised.



These blankets are thick and we do love them. My family used to get them from Mexico as we live near the border, but I know many Hispanic stores carry them as well. ⁠

Have you seen them?


If your family doesn't own them, what blankets do you use?


Do you get your "Rajaai" or "Sudani" shipped from India?


We have a set of those comfy India blankets as well! While I can't find the exact blankets, here is a very nice smattering of thick, heavy throw blankets if you feel like a little browsing...
