The Process

Welcome to the crowdfunding page for Georgia Sofia's peipei (被被, "blankie")

This quilt was inspired by Baijia Bei (百家被, “100 families quilt”); a beautiful Chinese tradition whereby village members contributed pieces of fabric so a quilt for a new baby could be made

It is said that a baijia bei contains the love and well-wishes from Baby's village

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.
