Christmas, we are first presenting Melchior, a honey-coloured ornament measuring 10 cm in height. He wears a cotton shirt with ancient gold-coloured trimming, with a claret-coloured cloak with gold ornaments and a crown of gold-coloured trimming. His wooden chalice - also gold in colour - represents the gift of myrrh, a valuable oil used for anointment and healing. Melchior is the first of the three kings to step forward, to be followed by Caspar and Balthasar in the next two years.
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.
This natural material from the wool of the angora goat is the classic Teddy bear material. In fact, it was used for the first Teddy bear ever created. The fiber is both beautiful and durable, which accounts for the amazing number of vintage. Steiff creations that appear today in superb condition.
All animals and Teddy bears at Steiff are very pleased to receive the extraordinary distinction of the white ear tag with red writing because these are produced in a limited edition. This means that only a limited number is available and some are available only in certain countries.
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.
