The tradition of kissing under the mistletoe comes from the ancient Celts where the evergreen mistletoe was considered a medical and magic plant. Under its protection against illness, witchcraft, demons, fire, and enemies, the Celts gave each other (beneath the mistletoe) the kiss of peace. "With the white felt I want to convey the feeling of the white and icy wintertime with snow and ice, "says the designer. "The golden parts of ornaments in the bouquet and the golden bow have to support the holy and magical wishes which are represented by the mistletoe and give a feeling of the magic and spirit of Wintertime," she continues. Completely handmade by Steiff artisans, the mistletoe bouquet hearkens back to a time when Steiff made animals and accessories of felt - proving that this grand tradition lives on at Steiff today with this breathtaking Mistletoe bear. It's a must-have for holiday decorating and collecting.
Those wanting to create something special and unique of lasting value will need nothing less than the perfect "ingredients". This not only applies to many other areas but especially to our Steiff manufacture, where we only use "ingredients" of the highest quality: for every Steiff animal, from head to paw. Starting with the thread, the filling material, buttons, eyes and accessories and right up to what is so characteristic for every Steiff animal: it's "coat" or "fur", which gives character and form to its appearance. So since 2009 we have been particularly happy to be able to call ourselves the world's only manufacturer of stuffed toys with its own fabric factory.
Although the number of alpaca animals in the Steiff range has increased in recent years, the company discovered the material many years ago. Its resurgence in popularity is due to its wonderful feel and tremendous versatility. Alpaca can be used to create both soft Teddy bears and ultra-realistic animals.
Every original Steiff animal with the world-famous trademark, the Steiff "Button in Ear", shows that it comes from one of the best families - and every Steiff Teddy bear and Steiff animal proudly wears an ear tag as a clearly recognisable identification. Both big and small Steiff fans immediately recognise the yellow Steiff ear tag with red writing.
When we say “For children only the best will do”, they are not just empty words but rather a guiding principle that has been followed for generations: Children are our present and our future. All cuddly toys that we produce and sell must therefore do more than justice to the absolute highest of standards in terms of quality, safety, processing and material attributes. We place this benchmark above all of the prescribed international checks and tests. The Steiff purity standard is a permanent fixture of Steiff's corporate philosophy and a foundation of the trust that customers place in us, and one that grows year upon year: This is marked by the Steiff seal.
