Steiff's Purity Law

For children, only the best is good enough

Steiff Reinheits Gebot Purity Law Seal

When we say that "for children, only the best is good enough" then that's no empty promise but rather a creed we have been living for generations: children are our present and our future. All cuddly animals we produce and sell must therefore more than comply with the highest demands with regard to quality, safety, processing and material characteristics.

We place this standard above all other specified international controls and tests. Steiff's purity law is a fixed component of Steiff's corporate culture and is the basis for the trust our customers have bestowed in us for many years: that's what the Steiff seal stands for.

Because perfection knows no compromise

Yes, admitted we are very strict towards ourselves and our animals and Teddy Bears. In this respect we know absolutely no compromise: All Steiff creations must comply with the very highest demands.

Over the years, we have therefore developed the strictest criteria where quality, safety, workmanship and materials are concerned. We also set these standards above all prescribed international controls and tests summarized and anchored in Steiff's Purity Law.

This purity law is a fixed component of our corporate culture and our responsibility towards our customers. After all, we enjoy their trust. A trust grown from more than a century of company history across generations. And this is a trust you cannot buy, but rather is given from people like you. And that is something we are proud of. The seal stands for all of this.
 
Here is what we mean by the Steiff purity requirement and how we act accordingly. Not only because the legislators specify it, but rather because we want to.
1. FREE OF POLLUTANTS
We voluntarily go above and beyond the standards required by law, as we are convinced that only toys that are completely harmless to health deserve the good name of Steiff.
2. HARMLESS DYES
With all dyes, we have voluntarily set the limit values more stringently than required by law. There is no worry whatsoever over children putting Steiff products in their mouth.
3. TOP QUALITY MATERIALS
In our own Steiff Schulte weaving production facility in Duisburg, we weave the finest natural fibres such as mohair and alpaca or woven fur made of synthetic fibers.
4. FINEST PLUSH QUALITY
The plush of a Steiff toy has always been something special: it is exceptionally lifelike, soft, durable, and sheds almost no hair. We use only top quality outer material.
5. HARMLESS STUFFING
We use only brand new, harmless materials for the stuffing in our Teddy bears and cuddly toys.
6. BEST SEAM WORKMANSHIP
This is ensured by the standardized Steiff seam width as well as the high stitch density that is typical only for toys from our company. A Steiff toy therefore will last a lifetime.
7. HYGIENIC PRODUCTION
In the production of our toys, we pay careful and thorough attention to compliance with all hygiene and purity requirements. We therefore use metal detectors throughout the entire production processes. 
8. INDEPENDENTLY CHECKED
We have had our products checked by independent institutions for decades and we work intesively with further independent institutions such as TÜV and Dekra. In our laboratory at Giengen an der Brenz we additionally carry out over 12,000 tests per year. The Steiff quality management is certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001.
9. UNRIVALLED QUALITY SINCE 1880
Our production is completely environmentally friendly across all the stages and keeps in mind the immaculate quality and durabiliyy of our products. A Steiff toy can therefore be a companion right through childhood and still give great pleasure even into adult life.
