Mountain Thyme was started by an entrepreneurial wife and mother in the mountains of sunny SoCal. A music major (singer and harpist) with an eye for design and a love for Scottish and Celtic culture, she set out to start designing what she wishes she could find while shopping at Scottish Highland games or online. Mountain Thyme is a reference not only to her family's home, but to a well known Scottish song, "Wild Mountain Thyme", often heard sung at various Scottish Highland games and other events. Thyme is also the herb that symbolizes courage, meaningful to her family as Dad is a cancer survivor.
Mountain Thyme is truly a family affair! We work together on designs, and proudly wear them! Inspiration for our designs is drawn from our love of Scottish, Irish and Celtic art, music, language and culture, our own travel to Scotland, our Celtic heritage, our two young sons, experience with piping and drumming in our local pipe band, and long attendance at various Scottish Highland Games and other Celtic cultural events in the western United States. We hope our designs will bring joy, inspiration, and humor to your lives. Keep an eye on our expanding product line!
