The history of these quilts is closely linked to that of A.P.C. In fact, each quilt is assembled using material left over from previous A.P.C. collections. Conceived jointly by Jean Touitou and Jessica Ogden, this project is now in its eleventh year. The current collection was created during a joint trip to Pantelleria, a small Italian island located between Sicily and Tunisia. That environment influenced the graphic composition of some of the quilts and the names they were given. Other names were selected as allusions to Blondie, Denise René and Edwige Belmore. The quilts were photographed in California, in Joshua Tree National Park, by Alfredo Piola.
