Ethical fashion e-tailer Adili said it had defied the consumer downturn after reporting "substantial progress" in its maiden annual results.
Turnover for the year to the end of April rose to £354,000 from £66,000 a year ago, although losses widened to £1.6 million as a result of start-up costs.
Chief executive Adam Smith said: "While the business is still young, having been trading for only 24 months, the group has achieved strong sales growth and has made significant investment in key areas that will drive future growth."
Adili, derived from the Swahili word for 'ethical and just', began life in a milk factory in Dorset two years ago. It now sells clothing, jewellery, shoes and home furnishings from companies that meet its ethical standards. Brands stocked include People Tree, Kuyichi and Jo Wood Organics.
It has also introduced a collection of own-brand menswear with women's clothes to follow in the New Year.
The company has benefited from growth in both the ethical and online retail markets, which have continued to expand despite the downturn experienced by high-street shops.
Last month the Fairtrade Foundation announced like-for-like sales of Fairtrade products were up 55% between April and June. And the monthly IMRG e-Retail Sales Index reported a 15.1% year-on-year rise in online sales.
Adili said it expected sales to continue to grow as it expanded the products and brands on offer, with an acceleration in sales as Christmas approached.
The company hopes to stock 80 fairtrade and organic brands across 1,500 lines by December. It has also brought in Hobbs's chief executive Nick Samuel to bring more retail experience to the board.
He has been credited with transforming the fortunes of women's clothing business Karen Millen during his time at the brand.
