Tom Patton was living in Chico, California (known as the City of Trees) and needed a new pair of sunglasses. He heard a story about a kid who started an eyewear company and made it big after appearing on a reality show, and this inspired him. A month prior, Tom had watched someone craft an accessory from wood. These thoughts, combined with a concern for impact on the planet, meshed in Tom’s mind and from this, Woodzee was born.

Being bred, raised and used in Central Asia for hundreds of years, the cashmere goat has had a wide effect on ecologically-friendly cashmere production. That cashmere comes from a goat can be highly surprising as an exotic species is mostly associated with the fine, soft under down that make up highly-prized light and warm garments.

On September 6th 2013, Alter Equo and Riscarti Fest brought the special presentation Re-Made in Italy to the Isola del Cinema, the summer cinema festival taking place in the beautiful Isola Tibernia. In this historic setting on the island in the river Tiber (once the sacral "ship" where Romans worshipped the river as a source of abundance and trade), artists presented multi-media work reflecting the change in lifestyles and consumer habits towards environmentally respectful practices and our place as stewards of nature's resources.

What made this event a precedent was found in where and how the designers sourced their materials.
