Steiff stands for the highest safety & quality

Description

After the end of World War II, shortages forced Steiff designers to find alternative materials as the company attempted to resume normal production. As traditional mohair was unavailable, other types of fibre and fabrics were used in production. From this remarkable period of history comes our Teddy bear replica 1948. Instead of mohair, the plush is made from blond alpaca, which most closely approximates the look and feel of the wool plush used at the time. Because wool felt was also scarce during this period, the Teddy bear's paw pads are sewn from a stable cotton fabric. Like the original, our replica has glass eyes, is softly stuffed with excelsior, and has a squeaker. The nose is hand-stitched. Airbrushed coloured accents help to bring about an aged look. A period-style "underscored button" completes this exceptional vintage design.

Best materials

Millimetre by millimetre and thread for thread: simply the best.

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.

Alpaca

soft, silky, opulent

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.

Collectors Kollektion

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.

The Steiff purity standard

For children only the best will do!

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.
