Isle of Wight eco-friendly T-Shirt company, Rapanui, has seen some great media coverage recently.
If you’ve travelled on the London Tube you might have seen the billboard poster, courtesy of Lloyds Bank, that features the Isle of Wight business, founded by brothers Mart and Rob Drake-Knight.
Rapanui is also the subject of a feature in the latest issue of Wired UK magazine.
Starting out working from the spare room in their parents’ house (where we first interviewed them way back in 2008), the eco-warrior brothers have gone from strength to strength and picked up a fll mantelpiece of awards along the way.
Their Internet of Things Teemill Factory in Freshwater is the focus of the Wired feature, as well as the lads’ thirst for all things innovative.
Listen to podcasts
You can hear the interview we did with the brothers way back when, nearly 11 years ago.
