At the end of World War I, Steiff was faced with a lack of wool and similar plush materials. Always innovative, the company found ways to produce bears and animals with a substitute paper-based material from 1919 through 1921. This fabric made a comeback in 2010 with a special replica exclusively for Steiff Club members. Using this rediscovered technology, a new "Paper Teddy bear" is now being introduced in brilliant snow white. It's a first-of-its-kind treasure that's sure to make the hearts of collectors beat faster. Join the excitement as Steiff makes history once again with this lovely Paper Teddy bear.
