“… The separator started up, it swallowed an entire load of carpet tiles and cleanly separated them. All three of us just stood there and watched it work. Without saying a word, we all knew this machine was going to be the key to recycle carpet …”

“The award celebrates innovation and is a welcome endorsement of the quality of WoJo. It recognises the collaborative, creative work behind this sustainable textile that is environmentally authentic. It will both enhance our stores and compliment Starbucks design strategy.”

Thom Breslin – Director Starbucks Europe


At a time when only a few visionaries were talking about
sustainability, Dell’Orco & Villani had already made it the key
feature of their organization. The company, based in Capalle,
in the Province of Florence, has been producing machinery
for the textile industry since 1964, but this is no ordinary
machine-producing business. Its equipment and mechanical
systems are designed to treat materials left over from the
textile industry and reintroduce them into manufacturing
With Next Technology, the company has patented a procedure that can remove elastomers from stretch fabrics of nylon, cotton and  wool, thus making these yarns reusable in their respective regeneration cycles.



  • We are making use of one of your previous models [guillotine cutting machine] which was purchased approximately 30 years ago. Still working, hence the reason we want to buy from you again.
