Steiff Ruby is made from deep ruby red opulent silk - a material that was especially made by Steiff for this series and is adorned with SWAROVSKI crystal elements. Around her neck she wears a silver toned necklace with a heart-shaped ruby coloured crystal attached. Limited edition of just 2,000 pieces worldwide. Surface washable.
Ruby's paw pads are encrusted with dazzling SWAROVSKI crystal elements and her nose and mouth are hand embroidered with black thread with a single horizontal silver stitch. Silk fabric was developed in Ancient China where it was regarded as a highly desirable luxury item. Even today silk is regarded as the height of luxury. So what a glorious bear - she is fully jointed and finally she has a crystal 'Button in the Ear'. SWAROVSKI elements are manufactured by SWAROVSKI and add glamour to any bear.
All the Steiff Limited Edition Bears can be recognised by the white label with the famous gold plated Steiff button in the left ear.
The Limited Edition Steiff bears are made from the traditional mohair and are fully jointed. They are also surface washable, with some only at 30 degrees. Steiff have been manufacturing bears and other collectable characters in their German factories for over 125 years.
As with all those characters made in the early days, it is still the manual skills and attention to detail that make each Steiff product wonderfully unique. As Margaret Steiff once said, 'Only the best is good enough for our children.' This value still holds true within all of Steiff's products today, and they are without doubt the most collectable bears available today. With Steiff continuing to produce exquisite limited editions along with a brilliant array of quality classic and cosy bears, their range will never stop growing. Each Steiff bear is signified by a tag in its left ear. View our range today and find something special for your friends, family or a loved one.
