Learn More about Baby Peipei
It takes a village
From Baby Peipei: Our children's nainai (paternal grandmother) taught us about a Chinese tradition called Bai Jia Bei whereby family, friends, and village members contribute fabric to make a quilt for a new baby.
This idea of a community-gifted quilt has inspired us to create patchwork peipeis and have Baby’s loved ones crowdfund them by purchasing the individual fabric patches.
Love you can feel
What makes a peipei so special is the uniqueness of each person’s love. When a patch is purchased, each village member is asked to leave a special message for Baby.
These messages are incorporated into a board book that can be read and cherished forever.
Treasured for a lifetime
All peipeis are handmade in Brooklyn, NY by NaiNai who has decades experience as a seamstress.
We chose soft poplin for the patchwork top and cozy cotton Sherpa for the backing. All fabrics we use are 100% organic cotton.
The professional craftwomanship and high-quality materials produce a blanket that will embrace the recipient for life; from tummy time to fort building and beyond!
