Supreme Steiff Bear – Heather Grey
One of the most sought after Supreme accessories of the Fall/Winter 2018 season, the company released this Steiff Bear on December 20th, 2018 for a retail price of $178.
The FW18 collection has several notable accessories that will be heavily sought-after, including the Supreme x Steiff teddy bear, which was recently voted as the most popular item to cop this season. While the stuffed teddy bear maintains much of its signature look, it takes on a street-ready sensibility by rocking a classic Supreme bogo hoodie.
The Elmar Bear features a synthetic fill and dons a classic red on heather gray box logo hooded sweatshirt made of cotton fleece.
The bear sold out immediately both online and in Supreme stores globally. Steiff bills itself as the inventor of the Teddy Bear, and has been manufacturing bears in Giengen, Germany for over 100 years. Place a bid today to pick up this unique accessory from a duo of industry powerhouses.

The Birthplace of the Teddy bear
The beautiful town Giengen an der Brenz is situated on the Swabian Alb, halfway between Munich and Stuttgart, embedded between fertile arable land, lush meadows, extensive woods and the juniper heaths, typical for the Alb.
Giengen is more widely known as the home of Margarete Steiff and as the birthplace of the teddy bear. In 2005 the Steiff Museum was opened for the 125th anniversary of the Margarete Steiff GmbH. It is an experience for the whole family and tells the story of the Steiff teddy bears and the company on three levels – fascinating for young and old.
