DutchCrafters has been the largest Internet retailer of Amish-made furniture for more than 16 years. We are the destination for solid wood, American-made, Amish furniture that is aligned both with your style and with your values.
Since 2003, we have sourced our heirloom-quality furniture from the back roads of Amish country in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Indiana. We’ve built solid relationships with woodshops and craftsmen there that we know and trust. We are able to connect you to personalized, custom-made furniture created by skilled woodworkers. Our Amish furniture and other products are built to be passed down to the next generation.
We sell and deliver furniture on our website throughout the contiguous United States, as well as at our Amish furniture store in Sarasota, FL.
In 2003, many people had a hard time imagining the words “Amish” and “Internet” as compatible.
Yet when DutchCrafters founder (and lifelong Mennonite) Jim Miller was looking for exceptional products to sell on an e-commerce platform that year, he found them within his own Amish and Mennonite heritage.
Miller comes from an Amish and Mennonite family in Indiana and Michigan. He knew that Amish made furniture represented integrity, authenticity and long-lasting value – precisely the alternative to cheap imported products that were flooding the Internet at that time. By offering a high level of customer service that matched the quality of the products, Miller was able to conceive the DutchCrafters brand – one that reflects his heritage and his values, while consistently pursuing positive innovation in customer experience.
Miller and his wife Linse spent the next few years tirelessly driving the country roads of Ohio, Indiana and Pennsylvania, searching for products and woodshops that could live up to their high expectations, and knock the socks off our customers.
Today, Jim and Linse can still be found roaming Amish country in search of incredible woodshops, amazing Amish craftsmen, and new ways to serve each member of the DutchCrafters family – from first-time customers to lifelong fans.
