PARASOL began in 1997 when Alfredo Garca-Lucio and Jim McKeever could not find the perfect birdfeeder for their garden. They were looking for a unique feeder that combined beautiful design, quality materials and superior function. Designer Alfredo went to work and came up with a number of innovative hand-blown glass designs. Alfredo and Jim then committed themselves to quality materials, craftsmanship, presentation and service, and PARASOL was born. Since then, PARASOL has grown into an industry leader in providing alternatives to traditional notions of bird feeding and garden products.
