Steiff Bears has an incredible history that dates back to its inception in 1880 by it founder, Margarete Steiff. There are many great books out there that go through the history of Steiff, and they are, for sure, an interesting read.
Presently ALL Steiff Bears are made in Germany and the company is very proud of this fact. (For a very short time span, Steiff's Cosy Friend Plush line of teddy bears and animals were made in China. But it was obvious to upper management in Steiff that quality was being compromised and customer satisfaction was being affected).
In addition, Steiff prides themselves on having one of the world's most stringent safety requirements for their products.
Steiff Bears is an incredible company and is sure to be around for a very, very long time.
