PIONEERING Isle of Wight clothing company Rapanui has scooped its latest award.

The Sandown-based business was awarded the sustainability award at last night’s (Thursday) Hampshire Business Awards.

The awards were held at the INTECH Science Centre and Planetarium in Winchester and hosted by Professor Greg Whyte, a leading sports research scientist who has competed in the Olympics and recently trained comedian John Bishop for his epic Sport Relief fundraiser Bishop’s Week of Hell.

Rapanui co-founder Rob Drake-Knight said: "It has been a massive year for us. We opened our flagship store, launched our own coffee brand and had some real success with our business to business and bespoke work.

"We were really chuffed to win the award, there were some major players there."
