How we got started

In the early 2000’s Jim Allsop had a vision of creating decorative solar lighting for gardens and outdoor living spaces. His first decorative solar product, the “Firefly”, pioneered the concept of solar garden art and kick-started the Allsop Home & Garden brand. Jim’s daughter Jamey Allsop joined the endeavor, and with inspiration from a trip to China, they launched the first solarized decorative lanterns. Jamey’s artistic vision and designs generated multiple new genres of solar lighting and solidified Allsop Home & Garden’s reputation as a leader in the industry. Today, their solar product line is filled with unique shapes, patterns, and fabrics that combine year-round outdoor durability with an elegant style that’s a perfect fit for any home or garden.
