We call our organic handmade quilts "peipeis" which is blankie in Cantonese. We chose soft poplin for the patchwork top and cozy cotton Sherpa and fleece for the backing.
The professional craftwomanship combined with 100% organic cotton fabrics create a blanket that will embrace and comfort the recipient for life.
NEW: Peipeis now come in three sizes- Original, Midi, and Mini!
Personalized Webpage & BookPersonalized Webpage Sample
Baby's village can group-gift a peipei with a personalized webpage!
Share the link with village members so they can purchase the quilt's individual patches and submit wishes. We then take those wishes and compile them into a custom, USA-made keepsake board book.
This option costs an additional fee but a $25 deposit is all you need to get started!
Our cards are made from 100% recycled paper and printed using plant-based toners.
The inside is blank and can be used as a guest log at Baby Showers and other events.
This gifting option is great for in-person communities such as neighborhoods, workplaces, apartment buildings, and congregations.
