Thyme, The Cotswolds

With a focus on nature, impeccable service and thoughtful design, Caryn's values are very much aligned with our own, and so who better to curate their edit of top picks from The Colombia Collective? Take a look at Caryn's favourites from The Collection below.


"We love the natural tones and simplicity of the Sandra woven placemats and have offered them in the shop at Thyme since the early days of The Colombia Collective. We use them regularly in our family home as they compliment our own hand painted Bertioli table linen prints, really bringing the table to life."


"These little Wayuu bags are a pure delight and we especially love this one in olive green as that’s our staple colour at Thyme. It’s the perfect size and compliments any outfit."


"These summer bags are gorgeous and practical - so chic for holidays and by the pool. Neutral and green are our go to colours as they remind us of nature and we love that they are beautifully hand crafted by talented artisans."


"The perfect piece to style kitchen shelves or a coffee table, or to pile high with fruit!"


"Our garden door keys for the family home never go missing with this giant tassel as a keyring - plus it looks great hanging on the door!"


"These mini pom pom keyrings are the perfect size for handbag keys, and are a sweet affordable gift or treat for yourself."

Thyme, The Cotswolds


Caryn Hibbert, Founder & Creative Director, Thyme & Bertioli
Caryn Hibbert grew up in the countryside with her mother and father, Patricia and Michael Bertioli, developing a love of nature, food, art and science in equal measure. A doctor by trade, Caryn combined motherhood with her medical career before moving to the Cotswolds where the children grew up immersed in country life, the restoration of the farm buildings and the creation of Thyme, and more recently as co-founder of Bertioli with her daughter, Milly Hibbert.
About Thyme
