 Bette Allen's GloGoods, a company renowned for its distinctive hand-made paper lamps.

Bette is an entrepreneur with a rich background spanning over 25 years of diverse experience working with light and shadow in film, photography, television and video production in which she has developed a deep appreciation for light and design.

She has a lifelong fascination with light, a theme that has been present since her childhood. She recalls being captivated by the glow-in-the-dark stars and the bubble lights on her Christmas tree. This fascination extended into her adult life, evident in her preference for soft, ambient lighting in her living spaces, achieved through strings of tiny bulbs and candlelight.
