    Are all the photos of Amish women?

    Interesting article, Eric. I do have a question – is the first photo of Amish women or Mennonite? The headgear make me think it may be Mennonite. Questions like this are how I learn!

      Hi Lucinda,

      This is Milca with DutchCrafters. Thanks for your question. To the best of our knowledge, the women in the first photo are Amish. There are many variations of head coverings, and colors vary as well.

        Thanks Milca for the answer and the great photos. Sometimes Amish women will wear a cloth holding the hair back (there is probably another name for it) though that style admittedly does look more Mennonite than Amish, so I’m not surprised you were wondering.

          When doing dirty, dusty work, it’s easier to wear a regular fabric “hanging veil” or a bandana or the like. They’re easier to wash and make. Kapps are not fun to wash, and if you can avoid getting them dirty to begin with, that’s preferable. (Not Amish, but this is my personal experience with Kapp-style coverings vs. veils.)

    I love the Amish made furniture but can’t afford it. Quality comes at a price and their furniture is definitely worth every penny.
