In 1901 Reinhard Schulte had opened his own factory, weaving plush fabrics. Today his company is known throughout the world as “the Mecca for bear making fabrics”. The name Schulte, Duisburg, has become synonymous with high-quality Mohair fabrics. Since their early beginns Schulte and Steiff have remaned in close commercial and privat contact.
Steiff Teddies, which attract the highest prices at sales and auctions are almost exclusively made from the “Original Schulte Mohair”. And still today, Steiff Teddies which are made from genuine Schulte Mohair are a Guarantee for highest Teddy Bear Culture!
Our long tradition, our “know how” developed by generations, and the newest production processes make it possible for Schulte to create fabrics every Teddy Manufacturer, Designer and Artist, -as well as collector-, loves and adores.

TIP: When cutting out pattern pieces, make sure you cut out all pieces with the pile going in the right direction. If working with a fabric, that tends to fray, ensure that you seal the edges with either a fabric glue or fray check. I sometimes re enforce the inside of the head with a diluted fabric glue, this will hold the shape when stuffing the head.
