Calliope is proud to recommend Sophie Allport's products to our customers. They make great gifts and her beautiful animal, insect and flower images are sure to bring a warm smile to the face of the person receiving one of these items as a present.
Sophie Allport was brought up in Potterhanworth, just outside Lincoln. She was at school in the city and later went to Leeds Metropolitan University where she graduated in 1994 with an impressive first class honours degree in Graphic Art and Design, specialising in illustration.
The homewares business was founded in 2007 by designer Sophie and her accountancy trained brother Jem. The quintessentially British brand is famous for its fine bone china and kitchen fabrics but you will also find a wide range of products for pets and children and a lovely collection of home fragrance, bags and accessories.
There are now over 30 different designs in the Sophie Allport range with over 2,000 product lines. The charming and unique designs are all inspired by Sophie’s love of nature and the countryside. Popular designs include Bees, Runner Duck, Chicken Labrador, Highland Stag, Hearts, Flamingos, Dinosaurs and Garden Birds.
