In 1919, following post-war shortages of mohair and wool, Steiff began to create bears from alternative materials. Steiff’s Teddies for Tomorrow series pays homage to these bears that were inadvertently created from more eco-friendly and sustainable materials following these shortages. Following in the footsteps of his predecessors in this series made from paper, hemp and recycled PET plastic bottle plush, this adorable Disney Winnie the Pooh bear is made from soft bamboo viscose plush and is filled with toy stuffing created from recycled PET plastic bottles. He wears a charming red linen waistcoat. He can be suspended from his secure metal keyring clip and fob or this can be removed replaced by a ribbon to turn this sweet teddy bear into an ornament or pendant.
