Heartwarming viral video shows woman having her late father’s shirts turned into beautiful quilts

  • A viral video by digital creator Nikhita Kini shows her sending her late father’s shirts over to a company in India to make quilts out of them.
  • Kini posted the heartwarming Instagram reel on Father’s Day last month, garnering over 2.2 million views and over 162,000 likes as of this writing.
  • The beginning of the video shows a folded stack of shirts in a cardboard box with onscreen text that says, “2 years ago we sent dad’s favourite shirts to a magical place.”
  • In her post’s caption, Kini thanked Purkal Stree Shakti, a business in India that sells both original and custom quilts, and said they do “God’s work” by “giving people more than just a warm blanket.”
  • Kini also wrote that she was too overwhelmed to film herself opening her package from Purkal Stree Shakti in 2021 since its arrival coincided with her father’s birthday, March 8.
  • Instagram users expressed their love for the reel, with many sharing their own stories about their fathers’ shirts.

Somewhere in downtown Brooklyn, my future father is ironing his only nice dress shirt and practicing pulling out the chair for a girl he hasn’t met yet. He thinks about calling one of his older brothers for some last-minute kissing advice, having never locked lips with anyone before, but ultimately decides against it. He has very little hope for his mother’s weekly arrangements anyway.
