Hanna Teddy Bear by Steiff – 22cm


SKU: ELL6199683580056 Category: Tags: , , ,



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 her predecessors in this series made from paper, hemp, bamboo and linen fabrics, Hanna is an adorable traditional teddy bear crafted from the finest pale blond hemp plush fabric. She has endearing glass boot button style eyes and is stuffed with wood shavings in the traditional way. Hanna’s feet are made from an unusual Violan fabric (felted plant fibres) and she proudly wears a distinguished polished brass motif chest tag.

Building on the heritage of bears made like this over 100 years ago, Hanna boasts the distinctive design qualities of a traditional Steiff bear, as well as a modern, ethical and eco-friendly attitude to production.

Limited to only 2020 pieces, she comes with her numbered certificate in a Steiff gift box with its original protective cardboard outer sleeve.
