Steiff is the world’s premier manufacturer of high-end toys and collectibles. Since 1880, Steiff has been making plush toys and collectibles that set the world standard for quality. Made from only the finest materials -- fabrics such as mohair, alpaca, cotton velvet, and woven fur -- each Steiff animal is meticulously hand-sewn and hand-finished by talented artisans in Giengen, Germany. The company is perhaps best-known for its bears -- Steiff invented the Teddy bear in 1902. Since the firm was founded by Margarete Steiff in 1880, more than 16,000 different designs for animals have been created.
Steiff products are often considered family heirlooms and are passed from generation to generation.
When "only the best" is good enough, Steiff is the only choice.
Steiff Sophie is made from the finest mohair in a gentle pink tipped colour with random black flecks - a charming mohair specially designed by Steiff. Her paw pads tone in beautifully in a gentle grey colour and she is wearing a pretty pink bow. Her nose has been carefully shaved to show the pale pink background of the mohair which contrasts against her black eyes and black hand embroidered mouth and nose. She is fully jointed and quite tradtiional in shape - so a bear to treasure. Surface washable.
