Björn Grizzly Bear by Steiff - 27cm

Steiff

Catalogue number: 006180

STEIFF AUTUMN / WINTER 2021 COLLECTION

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. Björn is an adorable grizzly bear, made from the finest brown and honey coloured fabric made from bamboo and dressed in a cosy linen hooded jacket with a coconut shell button and a jersey linen scarf. He has a delicately hand embroidered nose and endearing dark eyes. Björn is filled with stuffing made from recycled PET plastic bottles. He has a gold plated "Button in Ear" and he proudly wears a distinguished polished brass motif chest tag.

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

He is limited to just 2,020 pieces worldwide and comes presented with his numbered certificate in a Steiff gift box with its original cardboard outer sleeve.
