The stories of children’s dreams come true: as an energetic young girl, Margarete Steiff fought for her place in life, against much resistance. With a pincushion in the shape of a small stuffed elephant, she wrote the first chapter of the unprecedented success story, which is still being continued today, over 100 years later. Thanks to the loving dedication and quality consciousness of all the employees, the story of Margarete Steiff and Steiff GmbH remain inseparable from each other.
The idea for a new Steiff animal comes from the largest provider of ideas - nature. The individual specialties and features of the animals are copied as precisely as possible. The inspirations are then captured in the first sketches. The best materials ensure the excellent quality of all Steiff products. Steiff uses mostly natural materials of exquisite quality, such as mohair, alpaca or woven plush.
