A.P.C. isn’t about to let a good thing go to waste. For the next two weeks, the A.P.C. store on West 4th St. in New York City will be offering a run of quilts and patchwork accessories—including tote bags, tablet cases, and some fancy feline cushions—crafted from extra yardage the label has stockpiled over the past 27 years. The project began four years ago, when A.P.C. founder Jean Touitou tag-teamed with designer (and self-professed quilting enthusiast) Jessica Ogden to repurpose the brand’s textile hoard, which includes washed chambray, Madras plaids, and ditsy florals.

    I am so excited! So happy I had the cahcne to join! I live in a very, very rural area with no opportunities to get green products! I want to use more green products, but would like the opportunity to try before I buy due to the cost of green products. I am so excited for my box!
