Locally Made Goods

Handcrafting at its finest

Some of our businesses have viewing galleries or give tours and others provide yummy samples of what they’ve made.  We think you’ll have a great time discovering those made in Amana products and marvel at all the things made by the people of our small seven villages.

These businesses all feature items they have been made or are made by local artisans and crafters. If you’re looking for something made locally be sure to ask and the shop keeper will point those items out.  We are very proud of the large number of items made in our small villages.

  • Furniture, Clocks, and Wooden Items of all Types
  • Woolen Blankets, Cotton Throws, Scarves, and Tote Bags
  • Mittens

It is amazing how much is made in these seven small villages of around 1,500 people.  That shouldn’t be too surprising since they were almost self-sufficient from 1855-1932.  Most everything that our ancestors needed they made themselves.

Today, some of the original businesses still operate and many of the crafts that were practiced by members of the communal society have become businesses in their own right.  Be warned that not everything you see in Amana is made right here, that really wouldn’t be possible but many items are and shopkeepers will gladly point them out.
