About Us


Blake Rossiter - Founder and Owner

I'm a creative at heart, and have spent my whole life making and creating from a range of materials including timber and fabric. I've always had a dream to share my creations with others which is why Refined Handmade was started. 


I started Refined at the beginning of 2016, after finishing high school the year before. At the time I was uncertain as to the path I wanted to take in life, so starting a business to keep me busy seemed like a great idea. Since then, Refined has grown to a brand selling online, at markets around Christchurch and in local retailers. 

I am currently a full time student studying a Marketing degree in Christchurch while running this business. Over the past three years, I've met so many people and made many friends who encourage me to continue with my business dream every day.

Thanks for checking out our site, and please do not hesitate to get in touch if there's anything you think we could do for you! I specialise in custom orders and always appreciate a challenge.
