I started making my decorative woodland dolls after my sweet girl Alba was born. Inspired by memories of my grandmother, the creativity she passed down to me and the incredible talent she had with a needle and thread, I borrowed a sewing machine and taught myself to sew. After many hours of hard work, the first Thicket & Thimble doll was born.
Based in the beautiful Kentish countryside, Thicket & Thimble is now a small team of makers, lovingly creating each doll entirely by hand, using noble and hand-dyed fibres. The dolls are stocked with select retailers internationally as well as our online store.
Thicket & Thimble has expanded into two distinct collections: Heirloom; our signature, hand embroidered decorative dolls, each one numbered and limited edition and Keepsake; a collection of water colour linen print designs for play. We have also introduced an Interiors & Lifestyle collection which features sleepwear, artwork and nursery decor.
We strive to be as sustainable as possible and are proud to use organic and remnant fibres, recyclable and recycled plastic free packaging, solar energy to power our studio and ground source technology to heat it. By hand crafting every item in the UK, we don't contribute to carbon emissions by buying in stock from around the world to then sell on.
Thank you for joining us on our journey!
