A disabled seamstress in a small town creates teddy bears that are taking the world by storm

In its early years, a German company produced the world's most costly teddy bear, worth $43,000. The bear's skin is made of real gold and its eyes are made of diamonds. Later, to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the birth of the teddy bear, Stafford, the world's largest manufacturer of teddy bears, specially produced the world's most costly teddy bear, this teddy bear, the whole body of fur sewn from pure gold silk thread; ​he has two sapphires for his eyes, with twenty diamonds around them; ​the mouth is made of a piece of gold. Each bear is worth 43,000 pounds and only 125 are made worldwide.

Margrethe Stafford, a seamstress living in the tiny village of Gyeongen in southern Germany, created the legend of the teddy bear. Suffering from polio since childhood, Margaret became an excellent seamstress with her perseverance and patience, although she could not move her limbs.Here we have America Giant Teddy Bear Plush Toys.

Margaret used her savings from teaching to buy her first tailor's machine and started her own business as a tailor's clothing store. With her cheerful personality and skilled skills, baby Margaret had numerous regular clients when she was 25. With the help of his family, he began to make fluffy dolls, including bear dolls.

At the 1903 Leipzig toy sample market, her hand-stitched bear dolls attracted so great attention that American merchants placed large orders. From then on, Margaret's tiny tailor shop expanded into Stayford Company. Stayford was officially registered as Felt Toy Co in 1893. It didn't focus on making toy bears at first, because the so-called "bears" at that time had no limbs to turn and the body was upright, and later bears were dragging bears with limbs and wheels that could roll. Their "bear" initially did not have a breakthrough or progress in appearance, the shape is not pleasing, the body is overly stiff, and the fur is not soft enough. It was only in the early 1900s that Richard began to study how to design bears that would be soft and pleasant for children.

Herman Berg wanted a different toy that was delicate and soft to hold, and he wanted Stafford to help them make it. When Richard brought out a bear, Herman Berg was immediately attracted to the bear and bought all 3,000 of the teddy bears. That's when Stafford's bears truly got noticed and broke into the American market.

In 1907, Stafford grew into a large enterprise with 2,000 people. The teddy bears produced by Stafford were sold to the United States and different European countries, becoming the leading brand representative in the teddy bear industry.
