Teemill, the offshoot of Island brand Rapanui, now has the England skipper Harry Kane among its customers.

The Freshwater and East Cowes company also have stars such as fitness sensation Joe Wicks and YouTube's Yoga with Adriene wearing their products.

The online Teemill platform is now used internationally by over 100,000 brands including BBC Earth, WWF, Google, Sea Shepherd and Cancer Research UK

Such has been their success in the competitive industry, they are looking to hire 50 more Islanders to join their workforce in Freshwater and East Cowes.

The company is known for its unique circular products that come back to be remade when they are worn out, using only natural materials and renewable energy and making it affordable with clever software, robotics and digital marketing.

Today, the Island-born management team are led by Tobias Penner, from Ventnor, who said "We have continued to grow and the original vision for the company is unchanged, to build a digital company that does something positive about sustainability here on the Isle of Wight, our home.

"Continuing to invest on the Island is what we want to do. This recent round of jobs is linked to our growth as Teemill users are becoming larger and increasingly international”.

Teemill recently won the Queens Award for Enterprise and Innovation for their real-time manufacturing systems.

The investment in jobs follows a recent expansion into the Albany building at East Cowes, where 50 jobs were created in design, product development, warehousing, manufacturing and software engineering.

Teemill is capable of shipping one recycled/recyclable organic cotton T-shirt per second and uses renewable energy to power their Island facilities and internet infrastructure.

It employs approximately 130 Islanders, many of whom joined as graduate trainees or via modern apprenticeship.

More than half the leadership team were trained on the job by Teemill.

The company was first featured by the County Press in 2008, interviewing then teenage founders Rob and Mart Drake-Knight.

Mart said:"The business has matured as the team have grown with it.

"The success is down to them and the encouragement from many in this community that helped Teemill get this far.

"The latest investment in jobs speaks to our shared belief that the internet can enable sustainable growth companies to be built here on the Island.

"Teemill will continue to invest back into the community. We are looking to build a new larger and permanent home here so Island-built sustainable technology remains a feature of our Island economy for years to come."
