Gunhild Liljequist—a porcelain painter and chocolatier candy-box designer by trade—was hired on to Volkswagen’s Germany-based Department of Fabrics and Colors in Wolfsburg in 1964 when she was just 28. Her work focused on paint hues, trims and interior detailing, so when the first Golf GTI came into production in the 1970s, she was tasked with designing various elements of its interior from a sporting angle. Liljequist’s genius centered on giving the GTI two distinct, but simple, textile elements: a tartan seat pattern and a golf ball-style gear knob.
Recaro, founded in 1963 by the Reutter family, first produced Pepita pattern for customers in December of that same year. The first Porsches to use the Pepita design were late 356C models. They were followed by the Porsche 901/911 and Porsche 912.
The last use of Pepita covers by Recaro is documented for the first generation of the Recaro Idealsitz (Ideal seat) in 1970–71. Pepita could be had not only in black-white, but also in brown-beige, blue-green, and red-beige.
