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 bamboo fabrics, Linus is a handsome traditional teddy bear crafted from a copper coloured high quality linen plush fabric. He has endearing handmade wooden boot button style eyes and is stuffed with wood shavings in the traditional way. Linus’ feet are made from an unusual Violan fabric (felted plant fibres) and he proudly wears a distinguished polished copper motif chest tag.
Building on the heritage of bears made like this over 100 years ago, Linus 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, he comes with his numbered certificate in a Steiff gift box with its original protective cardboard outer sleeve.
