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.

About Us

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.

Peipeis in Action

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!
