The Making-of

For the Steiff Charity project, we wanted to blend two German brands known for their traditional craftmanship & innovation – Steiff & HUGO BOSS.
All of the process took place in our very own headquarters in Metzingen.
From sketching & designing the bears looks, choosing fabrics, manufacturing it in our sewing studio and fitting the garments tailor-made for the bear.
Staying true to the key codes of both houses, we created a look which combines the new BOSS logo & monogram with the iconic button in the ear of Steiff and dressing the bear as the BOSS it is.
