My name is Lisa Pellegrino and I am the founder of Resin8 Australia. I live with my partner Brad, and our three cats, Tiger, Billy, and Hobbes.

We have been a part of the Madeit family since early 2018, and we have loved the welcoming feelings from Louise and the fantastic community she has built on this platform. For Madeit to be Australian built and owned is a huge plus for us as we believe Australian hand made products are some of the best in the world.
