About Us

Our Story

For more than 50 years Ernst Licht Embroidery and Imports have been the trusted name for German imports. Ernst Licht spent years of importing items and making custom dirndls for his local club. A German immigrant, Ernst Licht opened his doors to provide his fellow Americans. He did this to ensure people still had the opportunity to be able to celebrate their heritage. Therefore, our store provides the latest fashions and gifts from Ernie’s homeland. In conclusion, years of hard work, including festivals all over the USA, was the beginning of our company. This all lead to our main store located in Oley, PA.

Ernst Licht Embroidery and Imports is now in its second-generation, owned by Ernie’s son Daniel. Still manufacturing items in store, we have expanded our imported items into a vast collection. We make sure we keep the same family business qualities, while also keeping our company strong and growing. Still a family run business, we are also expanding our horizons. Making sure we are able to offer the best quality items, and them highest quality of customer service.

In turn, we’ve opened a second location in 2015. In the Danish inspired city of Solvang, California. This was named European Fashion and Gifts. This store provides customers with Danish and German inspired import items. With two stores on different coasts, we make sure to provide the best in each one. Ernst Licht Embroidery and Imports holds to its values of providing the highest quality and most authentic products. In addition, all this with the best customer service.
