The Amish are a people that pass down their crafting from generation to generation. Entire families are usually involved in building. Some Amish use building techniques that do not involve technology such as power tools. Others use limited means of technology. Regardless, one common attribute of these Amish folk is the care and precision they use to build their handmade crafts and furniture. Definitely not the manufactured items you find in most furniture stores!! —
You will not be disappointed in the quality, nor in the “story” behind each piece. For instance, rustic rockers are signed by the builders, and these items are totally handcrafted. Amish craftsmanship equals heirloom quality and Amish builders use time-honored techniques that they back up with a 7 year manufacturer’s warranty. Amish furniture and crafts are definitely worth the investment!
