Toys by Steiff Manufacture are creations of the highest standard, and recognizable by the immaculate workmanship, the quality of the materials, the love for minute details and the legendary trademark: the Steiff “Button in Ear”.
"Some things may be thousands or several hundred years old – but they cannot be significantly improved. However, they can be continued at the highest level: That’s why we like Steiff’s manufacturing concept so much. “Manufacture” as an old Latin term: “manus”, the hand, “facere” to do, build or produce something. And if this thought, this concept hadn’t already existed, we at Steiff would surely have invented it. Creating something with your hands. Allowing skill, experience and craftsmanship to flow into the creation process. Bringing in passion, commitment and lots of love for detail into the creative process – in order to bring something extraordinary and unique to life. But that’s what it is: For us, manufacture is far more than just a fashionable word. Because, true to the spirit of our founder Margarete Steiff, we are fully committed to not only honour the tradition of manufacture, but to continually imbue it with new life. Day after day. With every animal leaving
our company so steeped in tradition."
Millimetre by millimetre and thread for thread
"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."
Perfected unique specimen
"We at Steiff also have good reasons to be proud and happy: after all, the Steiff “Button in Ear” is one of the world’s most renowned trademarks. This world renowned trademark, our “Button in Ear” with the Steiff ear tag, stands for something special, so rare in the hectic days of today: Craftsmanship and creativity, which have firmly established roots and can paint a smile for the future with incomparable designs and innovative products. All Steiff animals from our range are creations of the highest standard, and recognizable by the immaculate workmanship, the quality of the materials, the love for minute details and the legendary trademark: the Steiff “Button in Ear”."
